Card Share

Good Morning!  I love low key weekends.  Actually, today will be a little busy with laundry to get done and Hollyanne has a dance class this afternoon.  But I decided to treat the kids to dinner at a favorite (and cheap) place.  But Saturday was cold and rainy and a great day to stay in my craft room!

Last night Busy Beauties Boutique had a release party and I scored a free image from the sweet, sweet Carolyn.  So I set out to play.  I also discovered that I could join her challenge, too.  Although, I don't think my card turned out like rubbish, there are LOTS of scraps that should've been thrown away, involved.


I followed the sketch from The Sweet Stop.  I think this is probably the first time I've ever played along with their challenge and not used a Sweet n Sassy image.  I think it's OK, just this once.  Ha!  I also added blossoms which fits the Our Creative Corner challenge.  And as I mentioned, it fits Busy Beauties Creation Station challenge using bits of scrap papers and ribbon.

Supplies:
Card Stock:  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Basic Black (SU!) and Black (Bazzil)
Paper:  Tempting Turquoise (SU!)
Copics:  B000, B00, B02, BV00, BV02, C8, E53, E57, RV000, RV02, RV10,
  Y06, Y11, Y15
Stamps:  Tweet Hello from TAC
Tools:  SVG cut from Penny Duncan Creations, SCAL/Cricut, Martha Stewart border punch, 3/4" & 7/8"
  circle punches
Embellishments:  ribbon, prima flowers, gemstones

I hope you like my card.  I want to thank Carolyn for giving me such an adorable image to play with.  Thank you so much for stopping by.  I hope your Sunday is a blessed one.
