Hello friends!! Got some time this morning to start a card and finished it up this afternoon. I tried to get outside my box on this one... not sure how well that went, lol. Recently I have been seeing a projects that people have created for a new challenge called "Cure for the Monday Blues". Being intrigued by the title I decided to check it out. The creator of the challenge Taheerah is the kind of paper crafter I sometimes wish I could be... always on trend and super creative. So I was a bit, no actually A LOT, intimidated by the challenge. But after I saw her most recent challenge and inspiration photo (isn't it just yummy??) I decided to give it a go and came up with this card.
I used Chupa's current Sketchbook Saturday layout for the card. To keep things simple I used some burlap to emboss the bottom half of the white cardstock to create the look of the bottom panel on the sketch. I added the fleur de lis image using pink ink and then added the washi tape in several places. The label was die cut from vellum, adhered and then the banner (sentiment from PTI) was added. Finished off with lots of sequins. I was a bit worried it would turn out to be a "hot mess", but I think it looks okay.
Thanks for stopping by...
