Good morning, Friends! I hope your weekend is going swell! Nick had the day off yesterday so he was able to hook up with a friend and have some fun! I then was able to get some sewing and stamping done. Loved that! Especially since the weather turned icky. Today is more of the same weather wise. So thankful that the mountains are getting snow! And I love the rain! Spring is really here!! Still a little cooler than I'd like but it's not snowing - lol!! Today will be a very nice day to do more sewing and stamping!
Today's card was inspired by two challenges! The sketch at Freshly Made and the color challenge at Pals Paper Arts. I wasn't sure about these colors but the design team has such beautiful cards that I wanted to try it myself. And I am glad I did! I do like the way this came out! I adhered a piece of Crumb Cake to a piece of Calypso Coral designer paper and then tied a piece of Calypso Coral ruffled ribbon around it. This is then adhered to a card base of Calypso Coral. I punched three pieces of Crumb Cake with the Postage Stamp punch from Crumb Cake and sponged the edges with Crumb Cake. These are adhered to squares of Calypso Coral that were punched with the 1 3/8" square punch. I popped these up onto the card. Below the squares I stamped the greeting from Tea Shoppe in Raspberry Ripple. On a scrap of Very Vanilla I stamped the tea cups in Calypso Coral and cut them out. These are popped up onto the squares. I used the Itty Bitty punch pack to punch flowers from Raspberry Ripple and adhered them to each tea cup. A pearl is added to each flower center. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
