Wow I was busy chasing kids yesterday. Remi was wound up and going a hundred miles an hour. She is also a climber so every time I turned around she was on top of a chair. Needless to say I was pretty tired myself. Here she is after I finally put her in the carrier to get a few things done.
On to today's card! We always have a Surprise Challenge on Saturday. It is usually a photo inspiration. Here was my photo for today.
Saturday Surprises Challenge:
When I saw the photo I immediately was attracted to the heart strip and all the colors I decided to create my own version of the strip. I took a piece of Basic Black card stock cut to 4” x 5 ¼” and applied it to a Whisper White card base. Then using the Swirly Scribbles thinlits I cut the wave shape using Smoky Slate card stock. I used Tombow Multipurpose liquid glue and dabbed on dots of glue to the back. I set this aside to dry – letting the glue dry prevents the glue from oozing out all over but still is able to be stuck down. While it was drying I used the flower from the Itty Bitty Accents punch pack to punch flowers using Real Red, Tangerine Tango, Mint Macaron, Pool Party, Marina Mist, Pacific Point, and Island Indigo. I attached the wave shape to the left hand side of the card. Then using glue dots I attached the flowers in the order listed above starting with Real Red at the bottom. I added a small rhinestone to the center of all the flowers. I used the Embossing Buddy in the lower right hand corner as I was going to emboss my sentiment and did not want stray flecks. I used the “Thanks” from the Crazy About You stamp set. Using Whisper White craft ink I stamped the sentiment and then embossed it with Whisper White embossing powder. Love the look of this card.
