How are you all my lovelies?, I hope that the heat isn't getting too much for you all. I had a rough morning yesterday aftet two very sleepless nights, I was exhausted, I know my fellow AF ladies will confirm that this heat and AF aren't a good mix what I find bizarre though is when we are in Spain it's not nearly as unbearable even at higher temperatures, I think it could be humidity! It was overcast/cloudy pretty much all day here, it even rained a little around 5pm. Nothing much though, I was hoping for a dramatic thunder storm.
Today's card started out as a quick stamped card, I wasn't up to creating anything to fancy, so after a quick browse on Pinterest I had inspiration, I used Blushing Bride card and Ink with some Mixed Media card that was a cream colour, I used my Quiet Meadow stamps and created a background, I then die cut the Wildflower dies from the matching dies using Blushing Bride and Crumb Cake card. I roughed the edges of the cream card for a more rustic look, adhered the stamped cream piece onto the pink piece (that had some stamping too). I stamped a die cut the sentiment and little love tag, next came the assembly, I arranged the die cut stems onto the card, added foam tape to centre of sentiment label, to give the arched effect, I tied so w twine that I coloured with Blushing Bride ink, I added a piece of sparkle silver twine too, tied a bow, added the love tag and stuck everything down, added a couple of pink gems to the background. It looked good but I wanted more, so added delicate lace to either side of the sentiment, then added some top & bottom, then I felt that the edges of lace needed covering so added tiny pearls. I was quite pleased at how it turned out, it looks quite pretty.
Anothet warm day ahead to stay cool my lovelies,
Love and hugs to all,
