Barbara is the hostess for this week's CTD, and she has picked a lovely combination....this is one I will keep in the back of my mind for future reference:
Baja Breeze, Black or Chocolate Chip (I chose Black), and Sahara Sand! Love these together!! My nephew and his girlfriend got engaged this weekend. Oh my, what a romantic guy he is! When I get some pictures that I am able to share, I'll tell you about it. Mountains, horses, snow, a gazebo on a hill......it was something out of a movie!!! Anyway, I wanted to make a card for his bride-to-be, and she is not a frilly sort of girl, so while this card is not totally clean & simple, it is a little subdued:
I used a Kraft base with Basic Black mats, and a piece of K&Co DP from the Berry Sweet line. I used a Simon Says Stamp set that has lots & lots of sentiments and a couple small images, and I thought the little dandelion was cute with the design in the paper. I added some Kaiser pearls, a couple ribbon treatments and then some die-cut vellum swirls to fill in that empty space! I think I need another pearl, though, on the end of the little swirl that is just floating unattached....hmmm. Gotta think about that! Here's the inside:
I also stamped the outside of the envelope with the dandelions, but I forgot to photo that!!!
