I REALLY like this week's color challenge at The Paper Players, which features this warm and rich mix of colors:
The card design is based on this fun sketch from Mojo Monday this week:Maybe it was the early morning creative vibes, maybe it was the 2 1/2 cups of coffee I drank, or maybe it was my new favorite station on Pandora (Mumford & Sons Radio...LOOOOOVE it!), but this one came together pretty quickly for me today. As I was looking through my stamp sets, I stopped on the Apple Blossoms set and it all seemed to work out. I love this set so much, I don't ever get tired of using it!
I popped all of the layers up to give some dimension. Then, ran my brayer over the polka dot embossed layer with some Cajun Craze ink to make the dots stand out more. Finally, I added some white dots on the scalloped circle with the Signo Gel pen, to tie the colors together. Have I also mentioned that I am infatuated with seam binding and jewels? I have? Ok then...moving on...
I decorated the inside, but left it blank, as this card can be used for a lot of different occasions. When the time comes to use it, I will add the sentiment then. :)
Thanks for stopping by to visit today! If you would, please leave a comment and say hello. Now, I'm heading out to buy a pretty pink Bumbo seat, a sassy diaper bag and maybe some diapers...NOT for me, EEEK! ;) We are headed to a couple's baby shower tomorrow for some dear friends and I have put off the gift until almost the last possible minute.
But before I go, I thought I would share a photo I snapped of little Emmitt earlier today. He and Ozzy (oh, and my husband, too) have been very patient with me while I have been learning my new camera. The lens kind of scares him, so we only take a few shots at a time. I just love his sweet face in this photo! Have a great day today!
