I can't believe it has been so long since I have posted here! I was doing so well about posting on a fairly regular basis. My fibro-garbage has been flaring up, and somehow I am busy even though being busy somehow involved sitting on the couch.....Oh well, enough about that. I do have so many challenges that I meant to do and haven't been able to keep up with. I did manage to make this Mother's Day Card. A friend loved it and bought it which was good for my ego! lol I happen to like it myself and I hope you do.
The base card is a soft pink (which I love). I took a darker piece of pink cs, distressed it quite a bit with my CTMH edge distresser, and sponged the edges with some Tea Dye Distress Ink. Yes, I love pink! The butterflies and large flowers were made by fussy cutting from some lovely SEI paper. Some of the pieces already had some glitter, and I added various colors of Stickles to the others. The sentiment is from MSE, which I stamped and heat embossed on a scalloped white cardstock circle I made using a Paper Shapers Punch. I chalked the background with green. You will notice that I also colored in some of the leaves (using Copics) with green. Needed a little break from all that pink! : ) I even added a little green flower and brad at the lower left corner of the card, over the white lace. Added 3 green pearls from my stash in the upper left corner, and some white Prima pearls in a swirl. Adhered everything with 3-D Dots and folded up the butterfly wings for some dimension. Think that about covers that!
I'm sending this in to 2 challenges. The first is Cupcake Craft Challenges. Their challenge this week is to make a card that is not square shaped. They are giving a wonderful prize from The Stamping Boutique, so stop by! The other challenge I am entering is at A Spoonful of Sugar Challenge Blog. Their challenge is to do any kind of 3D card. They also have a wonderful prize by Bunny Zoe's Crafts - a stamp called Mimosa's Birthday and a sentiment stamp that says Hugs and Kisses. So you need to stop by their blog also and have a look. If for any reason these links don't work, they are in my sidebar!
Hope you have a blessed day, and thanks so much for stopping by my blog!
