Today I have 2 cards to share with ya'll. I wanted to enter the current challenge over at The Shabby Tea Room, but I don't know, I just couldn't get my brain working, I've been a little "off" all week for some reason so nothing spectacular was coming to mind..
Here's the inspiration picture, isn't it beautiful??
use teal, light pink & cream/white along with lace and flowers
Here's what I made...since I couldn't think of anything new and special, I went with an old stand by layout.
A couple of days ago received a pretty little set of vintage bottles & labels stamp set from someone as a birthday gift and thought they'd be perfect for this challenge. The flower started out bright white, but with the magic of Copic markers it's now cream with light pink highlights ;) The bottle and label set are by Hampton Arts and the sentiment is by paper Sweeties.
I wish I could have captured how pretty the pink and teal paper (from DeNami) is. I must have taken 20 pictures but never could do it justice. It's thinner than regular cardstock and has such a pretty little sheen to it, almost iridescent you can say. The sheer ribbon has the same pretty sheen to it...just wish I could have captured it!!
I've always loved this color pallet and have used it on many occasions. Since I had some new stash I wanted to play with and didn't want to clean the house like a good little wifey, I made another card. It doesn't fit the challenge since I used chocolate and kraft so I won't be entering it, but it's fun all the same :)
I'm not too sure about my sentiment, I played with several ways to do it and nothing really grabbed me. I like the flag hanging down, but the sentiment itself is just too plain.
That's it for me today :) Ya'll have a safe and happy weekend...I'll see you back here Monday another year older and hopefully full of cake, lol! ;)
