Well, it's Friday! Woo Hoo! Party on!
Before I get into anything else, I want to announce who won the blog comment prize - it's you -
Christina, please e-mail your address to me (link on the right) and I'll get your prize out to you! Congrats!
Today, I would like to share a card that has been in my mind for at least two years! So many things leave my mind on a daily basis, but this thought managed to stick around! LOL I saw this card design at Waltzing Mouse Stamps so long ago. I ordered the stamp set way back then and just held on to it until.....TAILOR TILDA came out in the Turning Leaves Collection. I decided to use the sewing seamed stamp set for a birthday card featuring Tailor Tilda. Here is the final result:
This was a real labor of love. There are soooooooooooooooooooo many components to that flower arrangement! Want to know a secret? I did them twice! I had stamped them in black the first time and thought the black was too overpowering. So, I redid each and every component using a softer grey. Live and learn! Good thing I find the technique of cutting things out relaxing! Otherwise, I'd go nuts! LOL Some of the flowers have been elevated on pop dots. I'd like to thank whomever thought of the pink and blue card challenge as well as each of you that created a pink and blue card for that challenge. I loved the color scheme and thought I'd put it to use on this card.
Here are shots of the interior:
I hope the recipient likes the card. I know I like the colors. That Tilda is just adorable! Diana at MAGNOLIA-LICIOUS is currently out of this stamp, but if you contact her, I'm sure she'd order one for you. Her prices are wonderful!
Now, you know I love your comments sooooo much! I think I'll do the same thing this time around regarding a special somethin' somethin' for one lucky gal who leaves a comment. Leave a little verbal love. I'll count up the comments and ask DS who lives in Portland to pick a number. Whichever number he picks will be the lucky winner! That's what I did this time, so you can scowl at him, LOL!
Love you guys! Thanks for stopping by!
