♥ Crazy About You

Happy Wednesday, everyone!  Hope the first part of your week has been a good one so far.  It is rainy & dismal here today...a perfect day to sit in my little craft room with a cup of tea & create the time away.  I totally forgot to mention that we went and saw the new Star Trek movie on Saturday evening with our closest friends Grant & Meagan...and it was AWESOME!  (Although the little one in her tummy wasn't too impressed with the noise.  She kept kicking her mama over our movie choice!)  It's been a quiet couple of days on the homefront, so not to much else to update you on.

I have a card up on the Glitz blog today, and this week we are all about the sequins!  Not a stretch for me...I've been using them for a few months now, and adore them!  I won an Avery Elle gift card last month, and I spent it all on some of their amazing sequins!  These sequins are smaller than my coveted Studio Calico sequins, and they mix & match really well.  Although for my card, I just used the smaller AE ones.  I have paired Glitz Design's "Hello Friend" & "Love You Madly" collections on this card, and this is how it turned out!
Instructions:
1. Make A2 card from white cardstock.
2. Cut background paper slightly smaller, then adhere.
3. Cut the layered sticker in half, pull it apart & adhere the dotted bottom half to the card as shown.
4. Layer a blue cardstock sticker, film diecut & Glitzer frame to the front.
5. Add a glittered tab & cardstock title sticker to the frame, then add the top half of the layered sticker to each side.
6. Wrap twine around the middle, then top with a double bow & giant rhinestone.
7. Cut a banner from patterned paper, stamp the middle sentiment to it & arrange the banners on the bottom of the card.
8. Add the restroom person Glitzer to the title sticker, then accent the card with sequins to finish.

Challenges:
-Cardibilities #75 - sketch
-City Crafter #160 - color inspiration
-Word Art Wednesday #81 - anything goes

I'm pretty much in LOVE with the colors on this card today...makes me want to redecorate my house to match it.  Ha!  Probably not going to happen, but a girl can dream.  :)

Well, that is all I have for you today.  I hope that you have a wonderful rest of your Wednesday!

Until later,
~L.

  12. Love these colors too. My aunt just re-did her house in these colors...all new paint and furniture and throw pillows, etc. So jealous. I've been on the sequin bus for a while now too. Need to find new sources for them so I'll check out that Avery Elle place. Just like with washi, every time I think I have plenty, there's always another color or style that I need ;) And yay! - you brought some Instagrammies back to the blog. Love seeing the other side. Some people only want to see crafties.....I like everything...because bloggers are people too, right?! :p Hope you're having a great weekend, Miss Lea. xoxo
