I know I'm late posting and am just getting in under the wire. The City Crafter Challenge Blog has an exciting event planned this week. As usual, the Design Team has once again "out done themselves" and not only is the image gorgeous, but the prize is to be a guest designer on their blog! Can you image that?!?! Here's the beauty of their inspiration ...
I started with So Saffron card stock and layered on print paper from my scrap drawer in shades of yellows and orange. Along the top is another print cut with the Scallop Edge Border Punch. It brings a bit of interest to an otherwise simple shaped card. The chipboard board frame (thank you Stella!) and the tag heart were painted with acrylics in shades of burnt orange and red. Bits of lace made a bed for my handmade flower to rest. I used the 5 Petal Flower Punch and the Fancy Flower Punch to create the petal shapes - dampened and crinkled each layer then stacked them ... adding a pearl bead on top. A touch of Dazzling Diamonds Glitter makes this bloom even more special and creates my "shimmery sun". The sentiment is stamped in Chocolate Chip Classic Ink and is from the Happy Greetings stamp set.
The bow is seam binding dyed with So Saffron Classic Ink and embellished with an adorable orange button from the Designer Buttons Brights Collection along with Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine. The tag is stamped with Chocolate Chip ink and a cheery "hello" from Pennant Parade. Very Vanilla card stock edged with the Scallop Trim Border Punch made my little tag more interesting.
Thank you for stopping by ... it's always a pleasure to see you here!
