Happy hot Thursday! Just as toasty today as it was yesterday...not fun...
It's hard to put a card together when things slip out of your sweaty hands...or all the little paper frays stick to you...ugh...
But I muscled through it all...walked away a few times but came back to finish my card :)
This is my first time ever using Kraft cardstock! I've never had any in my stock so I always just skipped over that option. Well, I was rummaging through some of the garage sale goodies I got recently and what do you know! Kraft! I wasn't totally sure if I would like using it on my card...but it's so fabulous! I love the brown and pink together!
Saturated Canary images for this card. It's been so long since I used one! Ok not really...maybe a week or so :) But I was having withdrawals!
This is the sweet Canary Love image. I've colored her in with my colored pencils and added lots and lots of glitter to everything! I printed the birdie twice and cut one of them out so I could mount it with dimensional tape so it stuck out on the page. Love it!
Flower Shoppe cartridge. I love making these roses! Rolling them up, watching them bloom, bending and softening the petals, adding glitter...a gem in the middle...so much fun! Paper roses are about the only flowers I get to enjoy right now in my little apartment, so I get a little more joy out of making them than I probably should :)
The cute sentiment is from Create with TLC. Seriously love the sentiments they come up with. There is always a perfect one to go with every card!
This card is entered in the following challenges:
Sweet Sunday Sketch #161
Bitten by the Bug 2-Rose Challenge
Little Red Wagon #138-Get Krafty
Paper Crafting Journey-Feeling Krafty
Stampin Sisters in Christ #144-Create Something that Reflects You (I think this whole card reflects me. I love glitter, birds are always so sweet and remind me of my mom (massive bird lover there!), I explained my love for roses above, and I always have everyone I love on my mind. Being so far away from my family and all the wonderful friends I made living in Seattle, and rarely hearing from them has been tough but I always have them on my mind and love them just the same.)
