I'm BAAAA-AAAAACk! ;)
I know, I already posted today, but I just finished my Mojo Monday 314 card, and I cannot wait to get it up, because it is also my very first EVER entry for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge that is due at 7am my time tomorrow! Whew!
I have no idea how this happened, because, quite frankly, this sketch was not my fave (sorry, Julee!) BUT, I was so inspired by Teresa Kline's take on the sketch, that I HAD to give it a go. Sometimes you just have to go with it, you know?
SO. Glad. I. Did!!!
I have been SOOOOO WANTING to use this "hello, my name is" stamp since I bought it! It is from the Close to My Heart All the Details My Acrylix Stamp Set. I absolutely LOVE the song by Matthew West by that same name. HERE it is if you want to take a listen. You won't regret it! ;)
Anyhow, like I said, I wanted to use it JUST like this on a card and this was the perfect set up! :)
I used my Ruby Close to My Heart Exclusive Dye Ink and swiped it across the pad after inking up for a great effect! I wanted to soften the bold Ruby a bit, and this did the trick! I also wanted to add a bit of bling to the card. My Green Glitter Paper was JUST the perfect touch to take this cut from the Cricut Artiste Cartridge from wow to POW!!!
I knew this antiqued button would be the perfect embellishment for my Close to My Heart Color Ready Seam-Binding Ribbon. I pulled out my Mini Medley Accents Antiqued Gold Collection and my Hemp and got to work!
Doesn't the fishtail banner look nice with it unattached at the bottom? I love the dimension it adds. Speaking of the banner, I love that weathered dotty pattern and it fits right in with the theme over at Simon Says Stamp. I even persuaded my Basic Grey Die-cut Flowers to get in on this action by adding one in the background! So many textures...I love it!
Thanks so very much for popping in and giving my card a look-see today! I had a lot of fun combining my different supplies to make it! :)
