Hi everyone! What a great day...the week is half over and I can see the weekend in sight!! I don't have any huge plans, but I'm ready for some down time after last weekend...I'm still worn out ;)
Today I have 3 challenges that I'm wanting to enter....
DeNami - WCMD Tic-Tac-Toe
1) stripes, glitter, ribbon
2) buttons, scallops, ribbon
3) buttons, green (flower leaves), stripes
Paper Sweeties - Baby Celebration
For Paper Sweeties, they held a fun little baby shower blog hop on WCMD to celebrate the news that Jinny Newlin is expecting and we are asked to make a congratulations or baby themed card
Lawnscaping - Patterned Papers
For Lawnscaping, we are asked to use some of our gorgeous (and usually much horded) ;) patterned papers
Well, here's what I came up with....
We don't know if the baby is a boy or girl and I didn't really want to do the old standby of green and yellows. I decided a little elegant black and cream was the way to go. I used 3 separate patterned papers that I layered (and stamped a sentiment on) before adding my darling little DeNami giraffe and bouquet (made with 2 shades of Paper Sweeties seam binding, Prima roses and some cute little twine and a black gemstone). I added just a touch of glitter to the giraffe and after a bit of thinking, decided the roses needed a bit of sparkle too. Since I had already attached them to my card I had to use a toothpick to add some Stickles to the petal edges...I wouldn't recommend it, lol, what a PAIN!!
That's it for me today...see ya on Friday :)
