Happy New Year everyone! Best wishes for a happy, healthy and crafty 2013. I took a bit of a crafting break over the Christmas holidays and am now anxious and excited to get back at it. So I visited the ladies over at Out of a Hat Challenge Blog for some inspiration and decided to make a card for this week’s challenge. The theme is birthstone colours. My birthday is in June so I went with the pearl.I chose the sentiment from the Close To My Heart Home Sweet Home stamp set. This inspired me to use roses (a symbol of love and beauty) on the bottom of the card.Using the CTMH Floral Happiness stamp set, I stamped the first rose layer in Baby Pink ink and then brushed some Create-A-Shade Pearl Paint over top. Once it was dry, I stamped the rose overlay on top in Blush ink.
A bit of pink patterned paper, some ribbon and pearls are the finishing touches. I gotta say I’m feeling a bit rusty so I’d better get back down in my crafting dungeon and make more stuff! Have a great day and see you real soon!
