Anyway, the reason I'm here today is to share a card I made for the latest Market Street Stamps Color Cue Challenge. This one was a hard one for me- I am so much more comfortable with neutrals... haha... but I LOVE the way this one turned out and it will soon be on it's way to my sweet sister-in-law for her birthday! I hope she loves it!
Here's the challenge:
And here's my card:
First, I cut a strip of Royal Velvet Cardstock, rounded the corners, and heat embossed (with white filigree embossing powder) this adorable Paisley background. I tied a Lavender Moon ribbon around and adhered it to the card front. Then, I did a little faux stitching with my American Crafts Precision Pen around the border. I think it came out nicely!
I was feelin' the heat embossing so I went on embossing with the flowers. These are two different size flowers that can be found in the new Homegrown set! LOVE these flowers and I'll be using those stamps A LOT! I layered the small flowers on top of the large flowers with foam tape and then added some leaves that I hand cut from New Leaf cardstock.
The sentiment, "Celebrate," is from the beautiful Simple Joys set!
Hope you love it! I fogot to share with you guys (my facebook friends have already heard.....)- one of my cards was chosen to be in the Card A Day 2012 issue from Paper Crafts! I'm SO excited! It was one of my goals to be published this year and I was very lazy about submitting.... lol. I finally did and it felt AMAZING to get that acceptance e-mail! I'll definitely be submitting more!
Thanks for stopping by today!
