I was so happy to see Lisa Haines as our Guest Muse for Challenge 56 this week, so I had to play along. Congratulations Lisa!
I was inspired by the polka dots, the three hearts, and the blocked off sentiment area.
I started my card by embossing Swiss dots (cuttlebug) on the upper 2/3rds of navy cardstock in a frame pattern with an un-embossed center circle. Below that I added 4 score lines to subtly separate my sentiment area.
I then cut 3 memory box Sophia Bloom's, (but only used 2 of the three flowers on the stem) from a scrap of Jilly bean soup cardstock. I wanted my element of 3 to go sideways not upwards.
I tried layering the flowers, but couldn't get it right. So, I grabbed some Jolee flower bling in 3 shades of pink and placed the sticker flowers on top of the die cut shapes. I love flowers wrapped in a bow. I die cut a glittery Perfect Bow (Simon Says Stamp die) using it to anchor the flowers.
With all that glitter going on, my sentiment needed a punch too, so that was also die cut from the Simon Says Hello small die and stacked several layers thick. I ran a black marker around the edges to stop the white paper edges from showing.
The weather forecast is for 6-10 inches of snow Monday, I am glad I got my groceries in on Saturday. I love the idea of crafting with a nice hot cup of tea watching the snow fall outside...somehow I get caught up in the snow falling. It is still magical to me. My Dad just shudders when I tell him of the forecast, he's happy to be in southern California.
Thanks for stopping by, Happy Crafting!
Edited to add, I am also entering this in the Die Cut Diva's March challenge - Embossing.
