I have been wanting to play along with my friend Dawn's challenges for some time now, but life and other commitments kept getting in the way. Well, not today my friends!! FINALLY, I got to play along (and in time too!) with Dawn's latest challenge!
She always finds such fun and fresh combos. I did play along last week, but didn't get my card done in time, I'll include it at the bottom of this post...
So, without further adieu, here is my card for this week's challenge:
I needed to make a card for a co-worker who recently had surgery. I LOVE that branch image from Beyond Basic Borders (would you all be ashamed if I told you I HAD to have that set, just for that one image??? I like the others too, but that one really had me hooked) Now-it's a little hard to tell, but the base layer and the stamped sentiment are in Berry sorbet, and all of those yummy buttons are melon berry...mmmm delish, right?
Here's my card for LAST week's challenge -- which was this:
Remember the wedding invitations I made??? Well, Saturday was the wedding, and even though it rained...A LOT, it was a beautiful wedding. I needed a card for the bride and groom. I thought this one up while sitting at work last Wednesday, but didn't get to actually put it to paper until Friday night...what do you think??
This uses that great big flourish from the With Sympathy set, and the Celebrate Sentiment is from Out on a Limb Sentiments. The flowers are my favorite little confetti flowers from M's, finished off with some flat back swarovski's, just like the invitations. The black border on the New Leaf layer is 1/4" black grosgrain ribbon, and the panel with the focal image is on dimensionals...
Before I go, thought I'd share a little photo of me and the hubby from the wedding
