August Key Ingredients Blog Hop!!

August 20, 2011

Hey there everyone!!  I hope that you are having a wonderful Saturday so far!  Today marks our first official Key Ingredients blog hop, as last month we joined along with the Blast from the Past blog hop!!  It is sure to be a treat, and I can't wait to see what everyone came up with.

Did you happen to see the projects from the inspiration week this month?  If not, be sure to head on over to the Key Ingredients blog or the Key Ingredients gallery and check them all out!!

So, let's get down to the details of my card!  CASE Study Challenge #53 gave me the opportunity to find a card from Chupa, and create something inspired by hers!  So, I chose the card she created for her own Sketchbook Saturday Challenge #24....and this is what I came up with!
"You Brighten My Day" supplies: 
Ink: Tsukineko (Momento Dye Ink: Rosebud)
Flower substitute: Prima Fairytale Roses (Buttercup & Orchid)
Corner Rounder: Creative Memories

Instructions:  Make card from yellow cardstock.  Adhere a strip of yellow honeycomb paper to the bottom of a floral paper block, and round all of the corners.  Cut a 3" circle from pink paper, and adhere to the right side of the card. Tie ribbon around the right side, and adhere the entire block to the card front.  Round the top corners of a white cardstock block, and adhere a cut-out honeycomb to it.  Stamp the sentiment below the honeycomb, then adhere the block over top of the ribbon.  Tie a double bow from matching ribbon, and adhere at the bottom of the stamped block.  Accent the middle of the bow and the honeycomb with paper flowers.  Cut out two paper bees, and adhere on each side of the honeycomb.  Accent the card with jewels to finish.
