Hello, friends!! Seems like ages since I last posted, but it has only been a few days. I'm in a bit of a crafting funk right now and not feeling very creative. Not sure what is going on, but I have been feeling like I need to just take a bit of a creative break. Even though I have been feeling that way I did manage to make a couple of cards today. I will be sharing one in a few days and the other one I'm going to share right now. I made this one for the current Frilly & Funkie challenge to use kraft and twine. When I saw that challenge I just had to play along as I just love creating with kraft cardstock. The layout is from the current Deconstructed Sketch (I am really lovin' the Deconstructed Sketches!).
I went with a teal, white and kraft combo. This came about based on the patterned papers that I pulled from the My Mind's Eye Follow Your Heart 6x6 pad. All that stamps used are from the Taylored Expressions set Be Amazing. I followed the sketch very closely and kept things very simple. I brought in a bit of funky on the card by using some corrugated cardstock that I got from the Funkie Junkie Etsy shop. A bit of frilly was brought into the project by distressing the edges a bit and adding the little rose to the center of the little butterfly (Part of a little gift that I received with my last purchase from the Funkie Junkie. Please take a moment to check out Linda's shop... she has LOTS of really fun items!). The twine (from PTI) ended up being a bit on the thin side and so I'm not completely satisfied with it, but it is what it is!
Thanks for stopping by....
