Over at the Four Seasons Challenge Blog, we are ready for a change in seasons!
For the next 3 months our theme will be
Anything Goes - SUMMER
check out this fabulous inspiration board Diane has created to help inspire you . . .
- The bases for today's card began with a 6x6 panel from the beautiful Mintay 'Graceful' paper pad. I then decided to create a frame using the Paper Rose (#16679) Stitched Rectangle die set which I cut from a Craft Consortium 'Ink Drops - Candy' 6x6 paper panel.
- I then began using up a few scraps for my embellishments. I've had several Heartfelt Creations flowers die cut from a past convention show where I was doing a demo of their products so when I need a couple quick flowers I simply grab a couple, sponge ink the color desired and do a bit of shaping ... Viola.
- I had a scrap of another panel from the same Mintay paper pad and it matched the color in the image so I decided to die cut a couple ivy branches to use with my flowers. A touch of Nuvo for the flower centers and that corner embellishment is complete.
- Awhile back I had die cut (in several different colors) the sentiments from the Pink Fresh 'Perfect Sentiments' stamp & die set so I'd have them readily available so that's where I went for today's sentiment panel.
