Don't you love it when a challenge really, really inspires you, and a card in its complete form pops into your brain?! All you have to do is put it together! That's exactly what happened when I saw the inspiration photo from The Heart Desires Challenge #9. My granddaughter's birthday is coming up and I wanted something special for her. She calls herself, "the Queen of Craft," and she'll only be nine next week! Between the two of us, and my sister and her little granddaughter, I'm pretty sure we could craft 24 hours straight. That sounds like fun, doesn't it?! Anyway.... Here is the photo that inspired me:
I blew up the photo a little so your eyes could wander all around. Fabulous, isn't it?! I concentrated on the lower right hand corner. If you look in the pillow's pocket, you'll see a little book. It's a "Lilly" book, and my sweet little 'Queen of Craft' is also named Lily. Had to go with it!
Yes! And the little card comes out too:
The flowered paper is from American Crafts. Scraps of everything else. Ardyth sent that bunny a few years back, and I knew I'd
hoarded saved it for a reason. The hearts are RC dies. The scalloped frame is a PPP die cut twice and split so that the pocket opens. "Lily" is stamped with Altenew's alphabet, and the little flowers are AE. A bit of bling just to make her smile when she pulls out the little card. And the lovely green ink is from Fresh Ink. So there you have it. I had so much fun making this card, and that's part of the enjoyment of cardmaking, isn't it?!
Thanks for all your kind comments about my new blog look. I'm still in awe of Loll's talent, and adore the way this turned out! Have a great weekend, and...
