Whew! I am tired! This past weekend I participated in a Street Fair on Saturday and on Sunday I had a small open house to showcase some of the new product that will be available in the new Autumn/Winter Idea Book from Close To My Heart. At the street fair I made some wonderful new crafty friends and I look forward to meeting them all again this fall when my workshops begin but I was standing outside all day in the hot sun. Thankfully I had a canopy and was next to a tree but I really, really do not do well in the heat. I do not think I will be a "snowbird" who spends her retirement years in Arizona!
Other big news for me... I had a new member join my Team! Welcome Karen, we are going to have tons of fun. It really is exciting to share my passion for paper crafting with others and I love that Close To My Heart makes it so easy!
Onto this weeks challenge from AHSC. As always, super cute! I made my card several weeks ago and it turned out a little different from the sketch but in all honesty this sketch was the inspiration!
I just realized that I do not have a photo of the finished card! I made it for my neighbour who was going to a very special wedding anniversary, a 70th! I just think it is amazing, 70 years together with the one you love! I am a romantic...
So the finished card did have a small tag tied to the stem of the flower using a bit of bakers twine tied in a pretty bow. I stamped "Wishing you a Happy 70th Anniversary" on the tag in Lagoon Ink and my apologies for not taking a picture of the card with the tag on it and I am unsure why I didn't. It was several weeks ago and I was in a bit of rush to get the it done.
For this card I used some of my horded "Dotty for You" paper, Color-Ready Garden Wooden Shapes, Cricut Art Philosophy, and Bronze Glitz Glitter Gel.
After I Cricut cut the flowers I inked the edges using Sunset, Smoothie and Creme Brulee and then rolled them using the Quilling Tool! (love the quilling tool). I then lightly inked the edges of the Garden Wooden Shapes, Sweet Leaf for the leaves, Smoothie of the butterfly and Sunset for the dragonfly. I then added some accents using Bronze Glitz Glittter Gel and my card is done. As mentioned before I did add some baker's twine and a small tag the stem of the flower.
