Especially for You

Good morning, Friends! An early morning post that will be quick as we will be leaving shortly to go out of town to a memorial service for a family member. And I didn't sleep well at all last night so I know that there is a migraine just around the corner. Hopefully a cup of coffee and a few pills will nip that and I will be good to go for the rest of the day!

Today's card is the third one that I did with my stamp club on Monday. I just love the color Crumb Cake. Anything goes with it!! And here I paired it with Wisteria Wonder. I love how soft it is. I took a piece of Crumb Cake and rounded one corner. I took two strips of Crumb Cake dsp flagged the ends and sponged them before adhering them to the panel. Then I stamped the image from Summer Silhouettes in Crumb Cake ink and the sentiment from Made for You in Basic Black. I used my paper piercing essentials pack and a piercer to pierce a circle around the flower to highlight it. I wrapped a piece of Wisteria Wonder ruffled ribbon around this and popped it up onto a card base of Crumb Cake to which I rounded the corner, too. Finally I added a flower that was punched from Wisteria Wonder using the itty bitty shapes punch pack with a rhinestone. So soft and simple!! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
