Live, Laugh & Love
Good Friday Morning Peeps!!!
Today I am sharing a card I made with the Ways to Use it Challenge yesterday on SplitcoastStampers. The challenge was Grey Doesn't need to be Gloomy, use GREY as a neutral color. Instead of choosing a white, brown or black base which are the most common neutrals, reach for grey!
I used basic gray as my card base and then use some pretty in pink card stock for my pop of color! Some of you know that I have become a bit addicted to making these rolled flowers, they are really easy and look so cute, I think anyway. I have recently ordered a Sizzix die to cut these out, that will make it even easier, so look for a bunch more of these once I get that die here. Another little tip I came across on making these, get yourself a quilling tool, it helps alot.
The sentiment come from the Stampin Up On your Birthday stamp set. I stamped the sentiment with basic gray ink onto some whisper white card stock. I added a piece of pretty in pink DS paper and some pretty in pink satin ribbon, my last bit of that so I need to get some more on my next order! I used the two step bird punch to punch out a few leaves with pear pizzazz card stock. I used my glue gun to adhere the small rolled flowers to the card so they will not fall off. I then tucked in the leaves around the flowers and added a few basic pearls to the flower centers. A nice CAS card for the stash!
Thanks so much for stopping by today, be sure and check back tomorrow for my Our Creative Corner card!
