I finally have a chance to post a card this weekend. I spent some time cleaning my house and doing laundry yesterday, but finally found a little time last night to make a card. Ahhh....I love stamping :) My reward at the end of the day!
Sunday lunch is done (lasagne and corn on the cob). And, I've made to batches of zucchini bread (4 loaves). The first 2 are almost ready to remove from the oven. Mmmm....smells good.
Ok. Back to stamping. I found so many great challenges this weekend. But, the colors over at The Play Date Cafe really drew me in. Take a look at the PDCC94 challenge. SO pretty!
My card ~
I used a similar stamp for my card. I changed the colors and sentiment. Also, instead of a border, I drew 3 lines under my focal point. I added a few teal gemstones...then dotted crystal effects on each of the flower buds. This card came together quickly (that's rare for me!) and I really like these colors for a sympathy card.
Well, I have to get back to the kitchen. Gotta' get the next 2 loaves of bread ready for the oven ;- )
Thanks for taking a look!
