Happy Thursday dear friends!! I'm so excited to say that I actually made a card!!! I've been missing my crafty time lately! Good news is, I've had several card orders that I've had to fill the last couple of weeks and for that I'm very thankful! I can't tell you though, how it feels to craft just for the fun of it and it totally brings joy to my soul!! I love the PTI Blog Hop Challenges and this one was very challenging for me!! Here's the challenge:
PHOTO CREDITS ::: cherry logo ::: butterfly ::: aa ::: fancy ::: take two ::: blessed ::: nichole's hello card ::: melissa's star card :::maile's striped card:::
It only takes a little *something* to take a project from ho-hum to amazing! Even something as small as tilting your images or sentiments at an angle can have a huge impact. This month we are challenging you to create a project that features something tilted. Position a frame at an angle, tilt your text, add a background strip diagonally, create a border that has an incline, slant a sentiment block, the sky is truly the limit! We look forward to seeing your projects!
and here's my take on the challenge:
This design was a little different for me, but different can be good. I love getting out of my box and trying new things! I did use one of my all time favorite PTI stamp sets for this card though. The Sweet Life roses are so perfect and striking and they just make me happy!! I lost my leaf die though, thank goodness they aren't hard to dut out!! I layered the roses on top of one of the new Big Ticket Basics. Love those tickets!! I know I'll be using them a ton!!
I used Pure Poppy to stamp the roses and New Leaf to stamp the leaves. I added a Loop De Loop border and topped it with a Smokey Shadow cardstock strip. Very Basic and just a little elegant! I made this card for a dear sweet friend of mine and I hope she likes it!! She has the biggest heart of anyone I know!!
