Are you enjoying your Sunday? It's been pretty lazy around here. Hubby had a day trip to St. Louis, so it's just me and the kids today. I stayed up VERY late again last night. I am such a night owl. I think it was 3:30am before I went to bed. I was really goofing off in my craft room, until the inspiration to make a card came over me.
When I saw the Play Date Cafe challenge I knew where my card was going to start. I had this card base with two patterned papers of Tempting Turquoise already mounted on the Whisper White base. A card that was never completed.
I really like stamping onto patterned paper, I've done it a few times and I've always been pleased with the results. It's a perfect way to work in some black. The solid flower image from Live Like You Mean It really turned out well. A solid image, but not too much black. I covered my seam with 5/8" Bravo Burgundy grosgrain ribbon. I tried a new bow. Don't know what you call it. I don't know how others do it, but I used glue dots the wrangle the ribbon. Then, added my button with some embroidery thread. It was easy and there's not a huge "bump" to worry about if I mail it.
Now I'm off for a little football, helping daughter with her Science Fair project and hopefully more stamping!
