It was 100 degrees this afternoon, so, I hid in my craft room. I was crazy enough to play tennis in the early morning, and it felt so good to just hide in the a/c for a while!
My card is for the Sparkle and Shine Challenge and for the Colour Me...! Challenge.
I absolutely love the color combo, Elegant Eggplant, Coastal Cabana and Old Olive. The sketch made it so easy for me to figure out what I wanted to do.
The white background was cut using a die by Mama Elephant. The purple polka dots is from SU and cut with the Mama Elephant die, too. I mounted the Coastal Cabana banner on top of it after using a piece of vellum under it to tone down the polka dots. I cut it with the Mama Elephant die, too. I also mounted a white circle cut with my stitched circle dies to mount the flowers on. It really does not show in the picture. I used lots of foam tape to add dimension under the flowers and leaves.
The sentiment and small banner were stamped in Elegant Eggplant using Winnie And Walter -The Big-The Bold-and Extras stamp set. I fussy cut the banner. I double mounted the banner to make it stand higher than the flowers.
Wink of Stella was added for lots of shine. It is difficult to see in the picture, but I think it adds so much to every card. I also added sparkling clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. Don't sequins make everything better?
I hope you enjoyed my card today. Thank you for visiting my blog. Please leave a comment and let me know your thoughts.
Have a fabulous Friday! Stay cool!
