Happy Hump Day Peeps!!!
Today I am sharing a card I made with Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge. I know I said yesterday that I might not post much this week, but after taking a long walk and then coming home and checking out Mercy's sketch I was inspired to make this card. I think I misspoke yesterday when I said I haven't had the WANT to create, truthfully the WANT is still there it is just the ability to make something acceptable. I think they go hand in hand tho, and I think maybe it is best to not push this kinda thing, the more bad things I make the more I don't want to try.
Any way I do kinda like this card. I used some whisper white for the base and the DS paper is the retired, I got a pack from the Clearance Rack recently, Georgia Peach. I matted each layer with regal rose card stock. The stamps used on this card come from the "Great Friend" and the "Baroque Motif" I stamped the swirl with regal rose after stamping off once. The sentiment is stamped with black stazon over the swirl. The old olive panel under the circle piece is embossed with EF. I used some regal rose ribbon to make the bow. I added a little decorative pin through the bow. I finished it off with a couple of small butterflies in so saffron with tiny little pearls in the center of each one.
Well, thanks so much for coming by and thank you to all who sent e-mails and commented about how they would miss me if I don't post for awhile. It really lifted my spirits. HAPPY STAMPING!!!
