Hello and Happy HUMP DAY- woohoo! It was almost 80 degrees here yesterday and is supposed to be again today. Of course I have to work but it makes it so much easier to get up in the am when the sun is shining!
You may have noticed, but I've really been getting into Cure for the Monday Blues lately. Taheerah's challenge is fun! I love her inspiration photos and her creations. I am always inspired to take my creations to a different place that I don't normally go. Check out the inspiration for the Cure #15. Wouldn't that be an amazing wedding to be at?! It looks fun and I love all the bright colors and the touches of gold.
Here is what I did with my card this week. I used my PTI Diagonals Die set. I cut my base on some vanilla CS and mounted it on my wood-grain paper. (BTW, this woodgrain is part of the DCWV Gilded Paper Stack that is perfect for this challenge. I bought it last Sunday, a very fortuitous find!) I cut bits of the CS from the colors I saw in the inspiration photo, including some gold glitter paper (not from the DCWV) and filled them into the pattern randomly. I embossed my sentiments from CAS-ual Fridays in gold to play that up a bit more. I snapped this resin flower off a bobby pin (I was never going to use it anyway) and popped it up above some gold accented ribbon. I finished it off with some different sized sequin for a little extra shine (close up at the bottom)
All that gold and shine gives me a jolt of electricity, which is why I am entering this in to CASology #93 this week, the cue is Electric! I am also entering into Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge featuring yellow.
I now notice that my colors don't quite match the inspiration photo from CFTMB- BUT I still love the result! I am going to a wedding in July, perhaps that blushing bride will receive this card and hopefully like it!
Thanks for stopping!
