I'm going to try to do a better job of keeping up this blog... honest! It doesn't seem like two months have passed since I posted; it apparently has been quite a while. I wanted to change the look of this blog to make it pretty and kept running into walls... guess I got discouraged! I'll work harder and try to 'pretty it up' soon. Meanwhile, here is my latest card... I'll post some of the older ones that got overlooked when I was having my learning curve problem. Well, I'm still in that 'curve', smack up against the wall, but here I am anyway.
Today's card will eventually be a birthday card for someone. It's a 5 1/4" square and was made for the At Home with Verve weekly challenges on SplitCoast. This time we were to be inspired by a dining room and I chose this one. Pretty pink... looks like an English Cottage-type space to me. Here is my card which is a pretty literal interpretation (as it turns out). I used my new Basic Grey "Lemonade" 6 x 6 paper pack and SU's pretty in pink cs. I chose Verve's Petals & Stems stamp set for the flowers and pierced around the edge of the Nestabilities green circle. I also sponged the labels nine Nestie with pretty in pink and a dauber while the paper was still in the die. The so saffron swirl is a Sizzix die "flourish #3" and I also used my Stickles "Fruit punch" on the flowers and the Martha Stewart Butterfly (punch). The ribbon is so saffron gros grain (1/2" I think) from Stampin' Up!
