Always and Forever

February 23, 2012

Hey there, everyone!  Hope that you are having a great week!  I have come down with a little cold bug....which hit me the hardest yesterday.  I felt gross all day long...but it allowed me to catch up on some of my DVR'd shows!  So, there seems to be a plus to this minus! :)

I have my card to share for CPS sketch #253, where we were sponsored by The Twinery this week.  I did ZERO stamping on this one, and let the paper collection & stickers take care of the sentiment for me.  Here is what I created:
"Always and Forever" supplies:
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (vintage cream) 
Paper/Stickers: My Little Shoebox (Heartfelt: Cheryl, Gigi) 
Doily: Royal Lace
Distress Ink/Blending Tool: Tim Holtz (antique linen) 
Twine: The Twinery (blossom, caribbean) 
Flowers: Recollections
Buttons: American Crafts & SEI

Instructions:  Make card from vintage cream cardstock.  Cut pink paper slightly smaller, distress the edges and adhere.  Distress ink a heart shaped doily, and adhere to the middle.  Cut a strip of aqua paper, distress the edges and adhere to the bottom.  Wrap twine around top of the aqua paper.  Tie a quadruple bow from both colors of twine, stitch a button around the middle, then adhere to the left side of the card.  Layer the heart & banner sticker to the doily using foam adhesive.  Sand the edges of a sticker tag and adhere to the lower right corner.  Accent the tag with three paper flowers.  Adhere three buttons to the right side of the heart doily to finish.

Card Challenges Used:
-CropStop #5- use 3+ flowers
-Charisma Cardz #7- love is in the air
-The Pixie Cottage #109- buttons & bows
-The Shabby Tea Room #102- high tea color inspiration + doilies
-Allsorts challenge #142- anything goes

I hope that you enjoyed my card today!  Join me tonight as we kick of another Lawn Fawn inspiration week!  You will get to see the design team in action with some of the new items that Lawn Fawn introduced at Winter CHA!  Hope to see you back soon! ♥♥♥ 

Until later,
