I have seen Kristina Werner's color inspiration post on numerous people's blogs in the last few months, but today I decided to join in and use it to make a card. Here are her colors for yesterday. You can see her post here.
I love these colors! Here's my take on it---it's a little busy, but I like it. I'm sending it to my Sister in law who had some surgery. I started with a Very Vanilla A2 card. I looked back through some of the layouts I've collected in a sketch book (none are my own!) and I used one of Beate John's Weekend Sketch Challenge sketches---#42 to be exact. I added a layer of Chocolate Chip and used the ticket corner punch on each corner. I cut a piece of paper from my Basic Grey Sultry 6 x 6 pad and layered it with Regal Rose. I pierced the corners of that, but you can't really see it because of the busy pattern. I stamped polka dots in Certainly Celery on more Very Vanilla cardstock using Papertrey's Polka Dot Basics set (LOVE that set!) and then layered it on a piece of Celery cardstock.
Next I made the image using the poppy again from Remember. I stamped it in Pretty in Pink (I don't have the Pink Pirouette yet) and then stamped the "squigglies" in Chocolate Chip. I cut it out and layered it with a Chocolate Chip circle and then a Pretty in Pink Scallop Circle. I added the button for some bling. I popped it all up on dimensionals. I was just going to stamp the sentiment directly on the polka dots, but once I started the layering, I just couldn't stop!! So, I punched the Label in Certainly Celery and then added the 1" circle in Pretty in Pink and finally my tag from the freebie set I got with my Cuttlebug.
I stamped "feel better" from PTI's Mixed Messages on top of a small flower and leaves from the Remember set. I held all that in place with some Certainly Celery brads. At the last minute I added the rhinestones in the corners---it's probably a little over the top, but I like them.
I tied a piece of 1/4" celery grosgrain to a Foof-a-la button and was done. Yes, this one took a little longer, but it's my day off and I was having fun. I did forget to put my dinner in the crockpot however until about 30 minutes ago, but we eat late on Thursday night anyway.....they told me this could happen if I started stamping!
I hope your day is a great one~
