Happy Thursday Peeps!
Today I am sharing a card I made with a few challenges.
First up I used the sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches.
I also used the color challenge this week at Stamp Ink Paper Challenge.
The base of my card is Chocolate Chip card stock and then I used a strip of DSP from the Neutrals paper pad. I followed that up with a piece of thick white card stock.
You know how the swirl of twine, jute or thread behind the elements on a card is trendy right now? I love the look but have not been very successful at getting my attempts to look right. It came to me when looking at the new Swirly Bird stamp set, that I could die cut a swirl and lay it down to sort of mimic that look. Much easier for me anyway and I like the look.
I die cut the large swirl in the die set using Pool Party card stock and glued it down to the center of my thick white card stock.
I used the Botanical die set for my flowers, I used Calypso Coral, Pool Party and white along with some Mossy Meadow for the leaves.
I embellished the flowers with some rhinestones and some enamel dots from the It's My Party pack.
The sentiment is from the Birthday Blooms stamp set and is stamped using Chocolate Chip ink.
Gonna leave you with another pic of our sweet little Audrey, a collage pic from her 1 month photo session
