Hi everyone, notice I did NOT wait a week to post this time, so hopefully all is forgiven by the thousands of people who come and visit my blog on a daily basis...LOL! Well anyway, the 2 of you who visit my blog, I'm back! :)
This is actually a card that I did 3 weeks or so ago. I tried taking a photo of it on at least 3 different occasions and could not get a decent shot. I don't know what it is about this card, but it does NOT photograph well at all. This shot is semi-ok, but you really can't see the details and it just doesn't look like it does in real life. But I'll share it with you anyway, because I give up on it!
The "hello" sentiment is from the Crafty Secrets "Tea & Coffee" stamp set and the butterfly is from Verve Stamps "Fluttering By." The lace at the bottom is a border stamp from Clearly Inspired. I used white Sea Foam embossing powder by Ranger on the butterfly and the border, plain black Brilliance on the sentiment. Just a simple Swiss Dots finish on the white circle, and a bit of layering. Very simple card actually. Oh, and the ribbon is from Luxe. They have the prettiest color combos.
In other news, I'm going to be selling my cards at a Country Decor and Gifts store in the downtown area! The owner seemed pretty excited and that made me excited. She was glad to be able to sell locally made cards...and I'm happy to sell them, hehe ;)
Well, I'm off to work this AM, people gotta have cookies! Thanks for coming by.
