Hopeful Hearts and the sentiment is from Block Greetings, both illustrated by Tami Mayberry. Paper is Red Hot.
One Layer Wednesday Challenge over at Jennifer's blog this week. She had a triangle sketch that was fun. However, I think I needed a longer leaf image. I will ask my expert Susan for advise on that. I tell you what that girl can balance out a crooked street! I love being able to ask fellow creators how to improve on my cards! I used the Verve images from Dream Big. I have been seeing this masking technique on cards, and I just love it! I took a 4.25 x 4.25 chipboard and cut out the rectangle (with nesties - I can not use a cutter - being a lefty the blade isn't at the correct angle), laid it on my card and sponged. I love the framing effect this gives. I will keep the template for future uses.
JUGS Challenge 69 - Wild Card; A self made flower. I made a Fan Fold Flower Oh my let me tell you what - I SO STRUGGLED making these puppies! I would get them pushed down and it would come unstuck -- so I must have tried 5 times!! FINALLY had success - for the photo anyway. It came apart AGAIN as I went to put it in my stash! Sheez. I really think these are fun, I just wish they were easier for me to create. As far as mailing--- well, not so much, in a box maybe, with no envie :). I used Verve stamps, Heart to Heart.
Crazy 4 Challenges - Shabby Chic. I don't do these cards enough. They are just so stunningly girly - ya know. All the layers and BLING oh yeah - fun card to make. However, I must say, they do take time! This took me about an hour to make. I haven't spent that long creating a card in months! It was fun, and I have to say, I do like the end result. I used the sentiment from Verve One Person. Lace is from MFP, papers (aqua mist) are from PTI along with the button.
Thanks so much for stopping in -- I was very busy playing I hope you enjoyed all the eye candy! Have a great week end -- I'll be back again tomorrow!
