Happy Sunday, peeps! I hope you had a good week…I thoroughly enjoyed my “vacation”….some of it was a “staycation”, some of it was spent at the Delaware shore with DD and DGD, and some of it was working, as in picking and canning the garden! But it's good to be back stamping!
And here's my card, starting with a Pear Pizzazz base:
I love the sentiments and fonts included in the Watercolor Wishes kit, and I needed a sympathy card this week, so this particular sentiment was perfect. I chose this pretty floral from English Garden DSP for my background, snipping out some of the florals and leaves to put at the bottom of my tag:
It’s hard to see, but the leaves are curled up a bit for some dimension. I stamped the sentiment in Old Olive and added some watercolory splotches from Work of Art in Blushing Bride and some speckles from Itty Bitty Backgrounds in Sahara Sand. Of course, I added a few sequins just for a subtle bit of shine. I snagged some cool cotton cording at a yard sale last week and it matched the colors nicely, so I used it for my tag, tying it with some hemp cord, which I also used to accent the left side of the card, so that allows me to enter this in the City Crafter Challenge this week, which is twine! And finally, Can You Case It has a “Designer’s Choice” challenge during convention, so I am entering this there as well!
I hope that you’ll play along with our challenge this week…it’s a great sketch with lots of possibilities! You can see what the designers did with it here:
As I mentioned, last week “the girls” took a couple days to go to the Delaware shore, where we hit the beach at Cape Henlopen:
