Style Beautiful

I’m back with a challenge card

Sorry about my sudden disappearance, especially since I’d been so active for a few weeks. I was hoping to keep that up until I had some family issues (teenagers and their attitudes) to deal with which took me away from everything for a while. Things are settling down and last week I managed to create a few things but those one’s I can’t share with you as they were for my Secret Sister swap over on Stampin’ Up in Oz. However I did create a birthday card last Friday for my wonderful friend and neighbour Meighan, which I’m going to share with you now. I had purchased Meighan a bunch of gorgeous wildflowers earlier in the day and the colours made me think of Concord Crush which I know is a current favourite of Meighan’s so I’ve used that in her card.

The challenge is from Clean & Simple #129.

As I had decided to use Concord Crush I went with the Lap of Luxury DSP, coordinating cardstock & Ink, the Style Beautiful stamp set along with Well Scripted for the sentiment. Here’s what I ended up with.

So what do you think??

Stamp sets: Style Beautiful, Well Scripted
Card: Concord Crush, Pretty In Pink, Very Vanilla, Lap of Luxury
Ink: Pretty in Pink, Concord Crush
Accessories: Pretty in Pink 3/8” Taffeta Ribbon, Scallop Edge Punch, Nestabilities (non-SU)

I’ll be back in the more with a card for the Just Add Ink challenge for this week.

Till then…..

Life is Beautiful

I’m back with another card for today. For this card I’ve used this weeks Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #176. It’s been quite a while since I’ve participated in a Mojo Monday challenge but it was good to play along again.

Here’s the sketches we were provided with.

I’ve chosen to use the Square layout for my card and this is the end result.

I’ve used a few ‘new to use’ items on this card. I don’t think I’ve used the Lap of Luxury DSP before or the ‘Style Beautiful’ stamp set. The flower trim is using one of the Itty Bitty Shapes punches which I only received a few days ago.

Stamps: Style Beautiful
Card: Basic Gray, Very Vanilla, Pretty in Pink, Lap of Luxury DSP
Ink: Basic Gray
Accessories: Itty Bitty Shapes punch, Basic Jewels – Pearls, Tombo Mono Multi adhesive.

Till next time…
