I just had to do it didn’t I and with my one little statement I completely jinxed us. I just had to utter that even though it snowed it wasn’t that cold out and we’ve been playing outside. Well I went to get the mail yesterday afternoon and the wind was biting cold so we didn’t go out after lunch and I watched the temperature fall. Then came the statement from Colin, “But you said we could go out this afternoon!”. Well I said that before I knew it was going to get colder didn’t really cut it. Instead I stayed inside and tried not to get sucked into the chatter about the new catalog that will be out in a few short days. I’m not going to spill any beans because I don’t have all of the facts, but when I do get the catalog I know I’m going to LOVE it, and I hope that you will too!
I did do the sketch challenge yesterday. I paired it up with Kristina’s Color Inspiration #36 that I didn’t get to earlier in the week. I loved the colors and I noticed how different Old Olive looks when paired with these two pinks. I even went back to check to make sure it was indeed Old Olive.
This card has a lot of layers but it actually went together fairly quickly. It would have been faster had I not decided to cut the two small Rose Red flowers out and stick them on with mini glue dots. I started with a Pretty in Pink base and then added my largest layer of Rose Red, Old Olive and Raspberry Tart designer series paper. This paper will be in the new catalog and I love it! I then made my 2 small image panels the same. Layering Whisper White, Old Olive and Rose Red. I stamped the vine from Dream a Little and then added the flowers by stamping in Pretty in Pink twice without re-inking and then the cut out Rose Red flowers were added. The panels are up on dimensionals. To finish the card off I added Pink Pirouette striped ribbon, the cut out flower and my sentiment. The finishing touch was to add the paper piercing. I just love paper piercing. I think it adds so much dimension to a card.
Have a great Thursday!
