If you could have seen me this morning trying to photo at least a few cards, you would have laughed. It was dark, then the sun (yay!) would peek through, so I'd run to the setup in the family room near the wall of windows to snap a few photos of cards. Many times, in the 15 seconds it took me to get to the family room, it was dark again...and I mean dark. There are some mean clouds up there today, and I'm betting my family and friends in the Sierra foothills are getting the brunt of those mean clouds.
But there's a fun "Spring is Near" challenge at The Shabby Tea Room, and my card was finished last Wednesday, and it's down to the last hour, and I'm going to get this card posted come rain or shine! :)
The challenge was based on this photo - to use at least three colors, and dry embossing:
and here's the card I made for it:
Patterned paper: Echo Park Victoria Gardens collection Pearls: Recollections Doily: Wilton Paper Roses: Prima
Dies: Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Rectangles and Classic Squares Small, Cuttlebug Floral Edge Embossing Folder
Clipart: Flower Girl: Vintage Images; Cologne Label: The Graphics Fairy; Butterfly: Dover Publications
I chose to use lavender, pink, green, and cream from the palette in the challenge photo...
and dry embossed the three flower stems using a Cuttlebug embossing folder, then accented them with a light brushing of Antique Linen Distress Ink, and a dusting of coarse clear glitter inside the petals:
I'm still trying to get some photos of more of the cards I made this week, so I'll be back tomorrow morning with some new little pretties to share with you. Thanks for stopping by!
