Hello! Happy Sunday. I hope you're enjoying your weekend. Mine has been pretty uneventful and I like it like that. I've enjoyed my day so far - it's nearly 2:00 in the afternoon and I'm still in pajamas. I've made a couple of cards enjoyed a favorite coffee this morning and then followed up later with a really yummy lunch.
So I haven't played along with challenges in a long time. In fact, so long, that I hadn't realized that so many of my favorites had closed down. :0( I was glad to see some others still thriving.
My card today features the sketch from Catch the Bug challenge along with a Bugaboo image, Tulip Tag. I'm also playing along with Just Us Girls (add a tag), Crafty Friends (girly) and Color Throwdown.
Color Throwdown said to use pink, purple/mulberry, hot pink and metallic gold. My card features very little hot pink since I don't like hot pink, but it's in there giving depth to those tulips. Mulberry, which is a reddish purple is in the ribbon and butterfly and the gold.... I foiled the outside edge of the tag using Zig 2-Way glue pen and foil by Thermo-Web. This is not the best for solid coverage. I like how this looks distressed. I even used a metal tool to apply the foil in places to make it look like brushed gold.
Just us Girls said to add a tag - that was easy with this cute image from Bugaboo Stamps. Crafty Friends said make this girly - not sure how much more girly and feminine this card can get!
It was really fun to play just for the sake of playing. I'm not on anymore design teams, the last term just ended and Cut Cardstock keeps turning me down. Maybe that's just how it's supposed to be for now.
Have a great rest of your day and thank you for stopping by.
