Hello Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend! I had a nice relaxing one. I may have over done it last week. I was one tired mommy this weekend. I think I had too much fun in the sun! We enjoyed strawberry picking on Tuesday (which were gone by friday!) a splash pool Wednesday, a friends pool Thursday and Chad's baseball game that night. Friday I planned to relax but my house was in desperate need of attention! It's hard to be balanced when summer is so short and the weather was so hot and beautiful!
After a week of not crafting I was so in need of it and was able to stamp on Saturday and I made this card. And I so enjoyed making it. When I saw this sketch at the Craft's Meow blog I loved it and the idea formed. Than I saw that Simply Scrapping Crafts was being sponsored by The Crafts Meow and there challenge is embossing so I combined the two! Here is the sketch:
And here is my card:
A close up:
I don't make square cards often but I had to make one for this card. When I saw the circle I immediately thought of using a doily. Still love those! I used the butterfly kisses stamp set by the Craft's Meow. I stamped the background with the butterfly using antique linen, vintage photo and angel pink by Memento onto some vintage cream cardstock by PTI. I stamped and embossed the fairy with party pink powder by Recollections and adhered her with foam squares. After putting all the layers together, I felt like something was missing so I stamped more butterflies and cut them out and added some pearls! I am quite happy with this card!
I am also entering this card into the Stamp It! Cards Week Challenge in the Moxie Fab World! I so love stamping!
Well I am off to make dinner and work on more laundry. I am sure I am not the only one who feels like summer is full of washing towels! :> I will be back on Wednesday with a fun post!!!
