I would say that my cards lately have been pretty simple and don't have too much going on so I decided I would stick with simple for this card. I wasn't sure what I wanted to do and actually thought about it all day at work, it really drives me nuts when that's all I can think about...LOL!!! :D So last night I pulled out my old faithful Happiness stamp set and went to work. If you read my blog you know that I do alot with this stamp set, but mostly with BRIGHT colors. Well I decided it would be a good idea to try something different and Marjorie's color challenge was the perfect thing.
I'm so proud of myself again, because I have used all CTMH products for this card except for some little pearl embellishments...yeah me!!! :D My card is a standard A2 card. What is that you say, "No square card?!?!?" Well I just thought I should change it up a bit, you like?!?!? Anywho, my base is Cranberry and I layered a piece of of Lilac Mist and Moonstruck CS on top of it, but not before I ran it through my cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots folder. I then cut a piece of White Daisy CS and stamped Happy Birthday in Moonstruck. Next it was time to work on my daisies. I stamped one large daisy in Cranberry and two small daisies in Moonstruck and Lilac Mist. I cut them all out and arranged them on the bottom right corner of my White Daisy CS. I only pop dotted the two small ones to give the some dimension. I found these cute little pearl embellishments at my LSS and thought they would be the perfect center for my daisies. I just think it adds a little elegance to my simple card. I felt like I needed something in the top left corner to balance out my daisies so I found this cute corner stamp in my Star Struck stamp set that would go perfect with my card. I stamped it in Cranberry ink, cut it out and taped it to the top left corner and it was just what my card needed. Once I was done with my main image I pop dotted it onto my base and added some White Daisy Organdy Ribbon to finish it off. Thanks for stopping by today!!!
