Creative Card Crew: Mother
Good morning! It's time for another challenge from the girls at Creative Card Crew; this fortnight the challenge is to use a sentiment as the main image. This was indeed a challenge for me since I don't often use sentiments! Our sponsor for this challenge is Simon Says Stamp.
I've been seeing a lot of challenges for Mother's Day, so I went with that theme; after all, it will be here before we know it. The sketch from The Craft's Meow looked like fun, so I went hunting for some subtle DP to use. I decided on this lovely paper from my stamping buddy Jessica...I love the vintage flair! I stamped the sentiment on vellum so the paper could peek through, added a die cut border, a felt rolled rose and some Swarovski flatback crystals. My original plan was to use a butterfly as the embellishment, but all of mine seemed either too big or too small. What do you think of the rose?
Sentiment: The Craft's Meow
Paper: PTI Aqua Mist and Dark Chocolate, Prima DP, The Paper Studio Vellum
Ink: Palette Burnt Umber
Embellies: Swarovski Flatback Crystals in "Light Colorado Topaz"
Extras: MFT Rolled Rose Die-namics Die/PTI Dark Chocolate Felt, The Cat's Pajamas CutUps Die (leaf)/Green Felt, PTI Border Die
Please head on over to the Creative Card Crew blog to get a bit of inspiration; we'd love to see your take on the challenge too...remember there's a prize up for grabs!
