Hi there on this sunny Friday....

my stamping friends!!! Thanks so much for all of the Birthday wishes I received since Tuesday. It was a real quiet day. I went out and about with my 4 y.o. to score on some awesome things at Michael's and Dollar Tree. Love this place to get activities supplies for the girls without feeling too guilty I spent too much money ;D you know!!

Anyhow, I have a card to share with you all today. It's yet another real simple one, but you will see that the effect is WOW!!!

A few weeks back I was one of those people that thought I had to have the Cuttlebug Romance Bundle they were selling over at HSN, well, to say the least, I only used one folder out of all of them. I believe it is called Meadow Lark. I also got some use out of my Cricut Expression as the frame I made for the scripture was cut with a flower frame that is on the Accent Essentials cartridge. I first cut 2 frames with 1/4" size difference and then embossed it with the Textile embossing folder to give it a little more dimension. Have a look and see for yourself

To everything.......

Paper: PTI Kraft, some dark purple and lavender cs (I believe it is Recollections {?})

Ink: SU Lovely Lilac

Stamp: ODBD Scripture Collection 1 Ecclesiastes 3:1

Accessories: Cricut Expresion and the Accent Essentials cartridge. Frames cut at 3.5" and 3.25 " Cuttlebug EF Meadow Lark and Textile, clear Rhinestones by Studio 18, Prima Willow leaves and a handmade paper flower using my scalloped circle punch. Tim Holtz Distressing Tool

As you can see in the photo the BG dark purple panel is embossing with the Meadow Lark EF. The scalloped circle punch flower has 10 layers and LOTS of dimension. This is not a card you want to mail, well, you could, but you would probably use a box the size of the smallest Flat Rate box available :D:D. I'd say the flower sticks out like 1/2" to 3/4 ". Oh, almost forgot, the edges of the dark purple panel were distressed using my Tim Holtz Distressing Tool.

What do you think? I was going to add some yummy ribbon, but it would have been too much.

Well, this is it for me for right now. Make sure to leave me some love to get a chance to win the Birthday/Blogoversary candy I am offering here .

Tomorrow is also a big day. Make sure you come visit me tomorrow as we start our brand NEW Shining the Light Challenge over at ODBD. Shhh.....gonna tell you a'll have the chance of winning a gift certificate and more, so come on back tomorrow. I'll be waiting for you right here with my creation, hehe!!

Mary said...

Your card is a definate WOW! I love every thing you did to design your beautiful card sabrina. The sentimnt that you used is one of my favorites. I love the flower that you made it is gorgeous! I must learn how to make them. I agree with you, this is not a card to be mailed. It would get crushed unless you boxed it up and mailed it. I'm looking forward to the challenge that begins tomorrow. :)

Hugs & Blessings to you Sabrina.
