Hello! A quick post to bring you a card for three challenges today. I generally don't try to combine challenges but these all presented themselves to me today when I was making a card I needed for an upcoming wedding. The perfect storm if you will..play date cafe has some positively breezy colors this week and with the 100 plus weather today, I'll take breezy!
The ladies over at Everything but the Kitchen Sink called up some sketch creativity based on a front loading clothes washer! a little something I know alot about as laundry never seems to stop its endless march. LOL!
And the lovely Shabby Tea Room gals have challenged us to use metal this week.
Ahhhhhh! Breezy! See what I mean? Also, these colors were perfect for the "something blue" I like to include on wedding cards. I do love a good tradition! :) The sketch allowed me to use my FAVORITE thing right now...a paper doily! What is it about these things? I just adore them!
The up close and personal shows off the hand made flower using a cut file by Kelleigh Ratzlaff for the large focal point flower. I used white cardstock spritzed with seafoam shimmerz. I dressed up the center of this flower and two other Prima flowers with a regular office supply brass brad (my metal for the Tea Room girls) topped with a pearl bling from Want 2 Scrap. From drab to FAB! I now LOVE my brass brads for flower centers! Thanks to adhesive pearls! The pearl swirl is also Want 2 Scrap. The flower grouping is finished with two pearl topped corsage pins...come to think of it, this ribbon, flower, pin combo reminds me of a pin-on corsage! I knew those floral design classes would come in handy one day (hi mom!).
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope your day is cool and calm! OH! And don't forget to comment on this post if you'd like a chance to win some BLOOMERS!
