Spread Your Wings and Fly
Hello and welcome to my blog. I hope you are having a nice Holiday weekend. We have a fun family cook out planned for tonight, I can't wait! Today I am playing along with the latest Color Challenge at Paper Crafts Magazine.
At first I was not sure about the colors, but after putting the colors together I have to say I love the combination! My card features one of my current favorite stamp sets from The Craft's Meow called "Butterfly Kisses", and the sentiment from the set "Fly Free". I used my retired SU Paisley background stamp to create the pretty black and white pattern. The Tangerine Tango polka dot DSP is also from SU. This is also my first card using my new EK Success border punch "Abstract Flower". Isn't it beautiful? I know I am going to be using it....a lot! I added some vintage black lace, and Bubblegum satin ribbon from A Muse Studio. I tied a bow using the same black lace, that I accented with a pretty button tied with Sugar Twine from A Muse Studio. I love love how this card turned out! If you have not been to The Craft's Meow store front I highly recommend it. The stamps are made of clear photo-polymer and stamp SO well. Just look at the beautifully stamped solid image. You can't get that crisp of a stamped impression with inferior quality clear stamps. Thank you for visiting my blog today and have a fun and safe Holiday weekend! Today I am also playing along with the following challenges:
