I just LOVE the way this card turned out!! In fact, I loved it SO much, I made one just like it I made it in soft sky too!! Can't decide which one is my favorite! The Blushing Bride, along with the sentiment makes for a beautiful Valentine's day card. While the Soft Sky card would be great to send to a friend or just about anyone really, who has been there for you.
Tip Top Taupe CS - 4 1/4 x 8 1/2, 3 x 4 (dragonfly)
Blushing Bride CS/Soft Sky CS - 4 x 4, 3 1/4 x 3 1/4 (scalloped circle)
Falling in Love DSP - 3 3/4 x 3 3/4, 3 x 4 (dragonfly)
I created this card using the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge from this week. I left out the 2 squares on the original sketch because it wasn't quite working for what I envisioned for the dragonfly. LOVE the way it turned out!! It's been a while since I have distressed on my cards, but felt like this needed some sort of separation from the soft colors. I added just a touch of Tip Top Taupe ink to the edges with a sponge.
The Falling in Love papers are GORGEOUS in person!! LOVE LOVE LOVE this paper pack! But to be honest, I was not a fan of it as it is shown in the Occasions catalog. SO happy I purchased it, because I would have missed out on creating with the soft colors of Blushing Bride, Soft Sky, and the muted tones of Sahara Sand. Tip Top Taupe is a PERFECT addition to this color scheme as it is just a darker tone of Sahara Sand.
Let's talk about the Detailed Dragonfly Dies.... When I first purchased them, I had a hard time using them at first. Just wasn't sure what the heck to do with them! LOL SO I forced myself to get them out and just play. Now I can't get enough! I just LOVE the touch of shimmer on the dragonfly from adding the Clear Wink of Stella to the Tip Top Taupe CS. BEAUTIFUL!!
