Mixing it up!!

You know that girl that always wore florals with plaid? The one that threw fashion caution to the wind? Well, when I made this card - I was that girl! I mixed it up all over the place! This was actually a card I made for one of the rounds for the Paper Crafts Gallery Idol contest -- but for some reason, it wasn't my favorite. Santa won out!

The stamp is the Bleeding Heart stamp from the Spring Ephemerals set by Flourishes. The saying stamp is one of the first stamps I ever bought! It is from PSX - you know the company we love that is no longer in business! I colored the flowers with ink pads by just thumping the color on. After I cut out the frame with my Nesties, I sponged some light green ink inside the "frame." How did I do this? I left my Nestie on my oval shape and used it as a bit of a mask! Add a scalloped layer, some patterned paper, some rhinestones and you are done! I love this paper by Scenic Route! Too vibrant and pretty in my book!

Well folks... voting ends today at noon (MST) for the Paper Crafts Gallery Idol. Deep breath, deep breath. If you haven't voted yet -- would you please check out my card and vote for me if you like it?? Thanks a ton!! HERE is the link! This one is for the whole she-bang! The winner will be announced around noon Mountain Standard Time Friday!! I am trying not to think about it! :-)

Hope you had a fabulous week so far! I'll be back tomorrow for Sharon's Stamp Simply challenge! See you then!
