Flowers for you...
Hi y'all! Happy Friday. I am sooooooo ready for a relaxing weekend! How about you? This card I'm sharing today is one I did for the Gina K. Designs Challenges last weekend for her release party. To be honest with you, I'm not all that sure about my card. Colors wrong? Paper wrong? It just doesn't "sing" for me. I know what I was going for! I used my distress pad (Tea Dye) and just rubbed it all over the paper before stamping my image and coloring it with watercolor pencils. I was going for a rustic, almost "dirty"look like this little card escaped and rolled around in the garden. :-) Wierd, I know! The layout was thanks to Erika Martin and it's really unique. I used my Nesties to cut the circle and then just layered it all up. I did sew a zig zag around the circle. Stamped my sentiment and cut it out using a 1" circle punch which I then cut in half and layered under my ribbon. That's it!
Well, I have a list a mile long of things on my to do list! Hope you have a wonderful day! The sun in shining here which is sooooo nice. Hope it is where you are too!
p.s. Edited To Add: Today Nina of the Queen Kat Royal Court dubbed me a "Card Making Princess!"
Do I get a crown??? :-) Very cool!! Thanks Nina!! Wait 'til I tell my family they must now address me as "Princess!" hee hee!
