Freaky Smooches

Good morning, Friends! I hope you are all having a great start to a fantastic weekend! We are hoping to have two great soccer games this weekend! The coach decided that he wanted to boys to play in the State Cup tournament. That means several games in the next few weeks. And if they play well and win then we continue on. So here's hoping to the boys playing their best!! At least the weather looks like it will cooperate with us -lol! Now to get rid of my sinus headache...

Today's card is one that I did for a recent swap that I participated in - The Control Freaks Swap group. I love being a part of this group! I get some of the most awesome cards ever!!! I started with a card base of Island Indigo and then added a piece of Daffodil Delight that was run through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. I took a smaller piece of Island Indigo and added a piece of the Summer Smooches designer paper. This panel is popped up onto the card. Then I made a tag from Whisper White card stock. I stamped the floral image from the Bright Blossoms stamp set using my Lucky Limeade and Daffodil Delight markers. On a scrap piece of Whisper White I stamped the leaves in Lucky Limeade, the vase in Daffodil Delight and the flower in Island Indigo. I cut these all out by hand. The vase is glued flat but the leaves and flower are popped up onto the tag. Then I punched a half circle from scrap Whisper White and adhered it to the top of the tag and punched a hole for my Daffodil Delight ribbon. Around the ribbon I tied a piece of white baker's twine. The tag is popped up onto the card. Then I took a strip of Whisper White and stamped the greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes and flagged one end. This is attached to the tag. My final touch was a rhinestone just above the flower! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
