Especially Serene

Good morning, Friends! Wow! The weekend is coming to a close SO fast! Thankfully we will get to spend all day at Sherry's house and then head home in the morning. Sherry is THE best hostess!! She has shuttled us around each day, made us breakfast and provided us with the most comfortable accommodations! Today we will be spending the day around the house mostly crafting and that is a good thing as I have spent all my money and I am pretty wore out - lol!! And I do need to get some things done.

Today's card is one that I did with my stamp club this month. I got the layout idea from a card at Archiver's. It's different but I really like the way it came together! I took a piece of Pool Party and ran it through the Big Shot with the new Apothecary Accent framelits die. I wrapped a piece of the new Midnight Muse satin stitched ribbon around this and adhered it to a piece of Whisper White. Next to it I stamped the greeting from Made for You in Midnight Muse. Then I took a piece of Midnight Muse card stock to the Big Shot and used the Square Lattice embossing folder to emboss it. I punched a flower from this with the Blossom flower punch. I punched three strips from Summer Starfruit with the Word Window punch and cut them in half. I adhered these to each petal of the flower. Then I stamped the image from Serene Silhouettes in Midnight Muse onto Whisper White and punched it out with the 1 3/4" circle punch. I popped this up onto the flower center and then popped the flower up onto the card. I added three rhinestones to the image and called it done! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
