Good morning! It's back to work with me after playing on Friday. I had some time yesterday to sit and make a few cards so that there is something to share with you here on the blog this week.
First up is my card for Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch. I had to huge honor of meeting Karen at CHA on Friday. It was so wonderful to put a personality and a voice to her blog and picture. People always look so different in person! I was laughing with her that I tend to be the last minute Wednesday night or Thursday entry for her sketches, and here I go posting it on a Monday! Guess I was excited and motivated.
I pulled out some of my much-loved Urban Garden dp and got down to business. I even used my extremely hoarded Baja Breeze paper on this card! I'm still having fun playing with my Blooming Button Bits set and this was an image and sentiment that had yet to be inked. I initially stamped the stems in chocolate on the beautiful embossed side of the circle, but the brown just didn't work. And I didn't want to stamp the stems is gray... That would just look, well, dead. So I flipped the circle over to the ugly side, stamped again in old olive and glittered around the edge using my glue pen. Overall, I think just one color of button flowers worked out well, and I really like the shimmery look of the circumference. I might try this mistake more often, lol!
Thanks for stopping by!
