Wherever you are...


Hi there - I've been busy at work these days, but I have managed to squeeze in some time to get crafty! I love this color combination and I have been wanting to use this paper for a while now. I put together the perfect combination of challenges to use them! The main focus of the card is the sentiment to go along with the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge this week and I just love bows on my cards (if you haven't noticed!). Also worth mentioning is the Simon Says Challenge that is helping a very worthy cause. Here is the LINK to get more information about the Caring Hearts Card Drive.

I used one of the sentiments from Flourishes Windows to the World set, cut it out with my Spellbinders die, and inked the inside edges with Ranger Distress Tea Dye ink using a sponge blender. I made my own sentiment for the inside on the computer. I recently attended a stamp show where I purchased this Heartfelt Creations die set made by Spellbinders that included this elegant corner flourish. I cut it out twice and put them together as a frame for my sentiment. A few purple pearls add a little touch of bling. All of my edges are inked with Memento Sweet Plum.

Challenges:
Flourishes Timeless Tuesday #89 - Sentiment focus
Stampin' Royalty #42 - Ribbons
Sweet Stampin' #48 - Ribbons
Our Creative Corner - Embellishments (die cut, ribbon, pearls)
Caardvarks - Inside and Out
Simon Says Challenge - Thanks

Thanks for stopping by!
