I am super excited to tell you that I am typing this post on my brand new computer YAY!!! Good Bye 9x5 screen HELLO 17inches :) I also purchased the Corel Paint Shop Pro 4 with the computer so I'll let you know how i like that once I play around with it a little more.
Today's card is actually not for challenge. In fact it is for no good reason at all :) Sometimes those cards are the best kind hehe. I did use one of the sketches from Hero Arts monthly challenge but seeing as how I was so blessed to win last month I am not entering this month. I just really loved the sketch!
I die cut my spellbinders (Curved Rectangles) out of scrap paper then traced it onto a white card base using a black marker. I thought this was a nice way to get a good focal point without the bulk. Once the marker was dry I went around again with my stardust stickles for some shine.
The flower (Hero Arts, Flower Blossom) was stamped onto the card base and a second time on scrap white. I trimmed out the second one colored with markers and popped it up on foam. I also added more stardust stickles to the center.
I cut two different size banners and stamped the sentiment (Hero Arts, All Occasion Messages) in jet black archival ink (Ranger). I threaded my buttons with some green bakers twine and adhered them with glue dots. The sketch has a bow in that position but I felt like it made the card either too simple (no buttons) or too busy (with buttons) so I just left it off.
Thanks for stopping in :)
