special day


CI54swatchThis was a tough card to photograph (if I get some time I want to retake it).  I was having such trouble with light and wind!!!  I take my cards outside since my house is so dark inside.  The wind was horrible and I went running after my card a few times, so I ended up using a clip to keep it in place.  Ha!

This is another combined effort card.  I used the Color Inspiration #54, Hero Arts challenged us to use die cuts and Flourishes challenged us to use designer paper (dp).

I love my Spellbinders Labels One dies.  I use them frequently.  I wish they had a size in between as I seem to always trim the one I mat with.  Maybe they’ll make a complimentary set some day.  I used all Hero Arts stamps on this card.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.

    I really like how the dp in the background really compliments the stamped image. The rinestones pulled the design together perfectly! Love it.
