a card.... and another request
Hello friends!! Happy Saturday!! Got a bit of time in this morning to make a card for several challenges: Less is More (paper piercing), ColourQ (color combo) & CAS(E) this Sketch. But before I get to my card I have a little request. I have been participating in a contest over at the Practical Scrapper blog and I have made it to the top ten!! I would love to make it to the top five and that is where my request comes in... please check out the entries here and if you like my card I would be thrilled if you voted for me!! Thanks!!
Now... my card. I used a favorite Hero Arts stamp Hydrangea and stamped it twice. Once in Always Artichoke and once in Cherry Cobbler. I then trimmed out the entired Always Artichoke image and the flower portion of the Cherry Cobbler image. The two were then layered. A piece of kraft cardstock was trimmed to correspond with the sketch and then I pierced the piece using a ruler. I kept the piercing simple because paper piercing isn't something I do a lot of and when I do I always seem to mess it up! The piece was then adhered to the card base, the sentiment stamped (also from Hero Arts) and then the image adhered using foam dimensionals. A few rhinestones finished things off... Pretty darn simple, except for all the fussy cutting!!
