Allll righty then. So far, I have one card this morning. I started it yesterday, but had to move onto house cleaning and cake baking. DH celebrated his birthday yesterday, and DD Cathy, and her family came over for cake and ice cream. So only a bit of time in the craft room yesterday. I plan on making up for that today. Still in my jammies, and the only real thing I've accomplished (other than finishing this card...) is my morning workout. That's fine with me, however. It'll be back over to the mess for me in a few minutes. I'm playing along with The Card Concept challenge this morning, and got a little froo-froo on. Not tons. I've tried shabby chic, and multiple layers of prettiness, but I can't do it well. So a little froo-froo is it for me. The theme this time at TCC is to create a wedding card. This one could fit into the 'Clean and Layered' category, or maybe into the 'Classy and Elegant' one.
I'm going to show the shiny part first...you can't see it in the whole card photo, but the silver portion of the card is shiny, shiny, shiny.
This is one of my all time favorite paper combinations ever, in the whole world.
And the silver swirls are shiny too. Only a little froo-froo. Started with a Neenah white base, then added the blue and silver panels. Can't tell you who made either one of these papers, as they were in my scrapbox, but boy oh boy, do I ever wish I'd bought a ton of these!! The sentiment panel is three layers, with a scrap of blue vellum under the white panel. ME smoke ink, and PTI stamps. A strip of pearls beneath the sentiment, and done. I wish you could see it in real life! Anyway... we're getting some nice soaking rain (yay!), and I'm headed back to the scrap (mess) desk. Happy dances everyone!!
