Good morning from Ault! My friend and I are visiting a very good stamping/crafting friend who lives in Ault. Did you know that it means "A Unique Little Town"? Cute, huh! We got here yesterday early evening and had a fantastic dinner! Then we did some wool appliqué the rest of the evening! Today we are going to have a wonderful breakfast and then we are going on a field trip to various stamping and quilting stores. Fun, fun fun!!!
Today's card was inspired by Mary Jo's Lunchtime Sketch Challenge. I really liked the sketch and had fun with this card. I tried some different colors, too. My card base is Riding Hood Red with a piece of Basic Gray that was run through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. Then I stamped the greeting from Friendly Phrases in Basic Gray onto Whisper White and added two silver brads. This was adhered to the card and then a piece of Twitterpated designer paper. Then I stamped the flower from Mixed Bunch in Riding Hood Red onto Whisper White and punched it out with the Blossom punch. I also used the Blossom punch to punch out a flower from Riding Hood Red card stock and then from Pear Pizzazz card stock. The two Riding Hood Red flowers are adhered together. I cut two petals from the Pear Pizzazz flower and used them as leaves and adhered them behind my flowers. This is popped up onto the card. Then I took a Basic Gray button and tied a bow with the white baker's twine. I glue dotted this to the middle of the flower. And there you have it! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
