I hope ya'll had a great weekend, filled with lots of crafting goodness! As mentioned yesterday, I spent the weekend creating all kinds of things. This week will be busy with posts. :)
I think this next card is among one of my favorites. Check it!
There is a lot going on in this card. Lots of texture for sure. The scalloped circle is actually a paper coaster I got at a restaurant not too long ago. I loved the embossed texture it had, and definitely had some ideas running around in my head when I saw it. I used my distress inks for the colors, it started off white, then I stamped a floral background stamp in water, and then I stamped my En Francais stamp in brown over that. Not bad for a recycled paper coaster, huh? I'm loving how it turned out. I've combined the following challenges into my card.
Triplicate Trials Tuesday #8 - Sketch, Colors: red, orange & yellow, Extra theme of Peace (they're having a blog hop as well)
Do You Stack Up #36 - Textures
Stuck On You 9/9 - Die Cut Flowers (my white rosette is a rolled flower die cut)
Just Us Girls #101 - Text as a background
Annabelle Stamps - Blooms/Flowers
Belli Challenge #125 - Acetate or Vellum (I have a transparency butterfly on my card, if you look hard enough)
Flutterby Wednesday #170 - Butterfly, open theme this week
Whew, talk about lots going on. lol I'll be back soon with another card. Don't forget, you still have time to join in on the latest FYI challenge. It's open until Wednesday. For all of the details, click HERE.
Have a good one!
