Of course, you'll also have to travel over to Dee's place to see what she cooked up with this challenge too! If you have to make a baby card for any reason, her spin on this challenge will surely give you some inspiration!!
We've got a new partner in crime this week too! Tammy over at Stamp Happy! She jumped right in with a darling card that uses some really fun decorative paper. Love it!
I have to say, I went a little overboard. Ok, a LOT overboard. I love to cut and when I saw this new image from Impression Obsession (not yet released) I thought, man, I have to use it! I used a mix of solid green paper and patterned green paper for both the lime and leaves. Then, I used that same paper for the base of my card. I used mini glue dots for under the leaves so that they would just kind of "float" above my image. It gave it a ton of dimension. Then, the little circles in the image were colored with my lime green Copic Spica glitter pen. The centers of the lime I "painted" with two way glue and then when it dried to tacky, I sprinkled it with Prisma Glitter. I love my glitz you know!!
Here's a close up...
Now, to my favorite part! IO has a new stamp coming out saying, "Got Margaritas?" But, unfortunately, I don't have it yet (emphasis on yet!). So, I made this little number on my computer because I thought this was the perfect saying for this card! I just used a 1" circle punch to punch it out and then added it do my polka dot sheer ribbon with a little jump ring.
Come to think of it. It's Friday. I just might "get" me some Margaritas tonight!! Anyone want to join me??? TGIF!
Have a fun day and hope you make time for Sharon's challenge!
