What a wonderful combination of colors from Just Us Girls this week Shades of blue, the softness of pink, and a cheerful splash of yellow. The samples from the Design Team are something to see ... be sure you pay them a visit.
I hope you enjoy today's post. I began with Baja Breeze cardstock ... edges brushed ever so lightly with a soft pink paint. Layered on top with a black/white print and pink header scalloped with this border punch. The gorgeous filigree frame (Notably Ornate) was stamped in Basic Grey ink on distressed Very Vanilla cardstock. The chair and greeting are from Timeless Treasures (sooo in love with this set) stamped in Basic Black ink on distressed Whisper White cardstock. While playing with various neutrals, I thought the combination gave the card an eclectic look ... as if layering elements from different eras. The lace gave texture to ensemble.
A scrap of blue print from my pile of "left overs" was shaped with a Scallop Circle Punch. I painted a chipboard crown with a saffron shade of yellow, added some stitching and then "glitterfied" it with Dazzling Diamonds. Having always wanted to try to stitch on chipboard, this was my first attempt. I learned a little and will improve the next time ... but mostly I learned that I love the look!
Finally - on to the bow. I've had this ribbon for a very long time ... just enough Pink Taffeta left on my roll for this project today. A pearl bead was added to the stick pin with the lovely blue button from the Subtles Collection.
Thank you for stopping by!
