Well, it was a beautiful day here yesterday! It was so nice that I even had the top down in the car for a while! I had a fun relaxing day. I had breakfast with Andrew and then we went to the mall. We met Heather at BJ’s and the went to Friday’s for lunch and I ended up back at Friday’s for dinner with Maureen! I even squeezed in some crafting time! It was a really nice day! 🙂
Thanks so much to Diane for choosing my card last week for pick! You can see my original post here and the Pals Paper Arts post here. My card for today is for this week’s Pals Paper Arts challenge. This week we have an interesting sketch from Margaret Moody…
I wanted a overly blingy card and that’s just what I got! My card base is a piece of Whisper White Card Stock. For my background I used a piece of Basic Black that I embossed with the Stylish Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Next up is the bling! I cut strips of Silver and Champagne Glimmer Paper and adhered them to a piece of Crumb Cake (not sure why Crumb Cake… LOL!). After I had them all adhered I trimmed off the excess and mounted it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. My greeting is from the Perfect Couple Stamp Set* and the words are heat embossed with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The mustache, stamped in Basic Black, and the lips, stamped in Real Red are cut out with my Paper Snips and coated in Crystal Effects to give it some shine. The greeting is cut out with the Ovals Collection Framelits Dies and adhered to the panel of Real Red, embossed with the Stylish Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and backed with a piece of Basic Black. My heart is cut out with the Hearts a Flutter Framelits from a piece of Red Glimmer Paper and backed with another heart from the Hearts Collection Framelits. I love the mustache and lips coated with the Crystal Effects, I haven’t used it such a long time! Thanks so much for checking in with me today to see my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge. I hope that you all have a fun Sunday!
