Holy Moly, I spent the day on this card. I first started trying to use a certain sketch and took so much time with it. Shame on me because in the end I didn't like it one bit and had to start over in a completely different direction. Guess what else...I have taken sooooooooo many photos. Every time I got one I liked, I would see a speck of glitter somewhere on the card. I should have just given up. LOL
I am just thinking how clean my craft room was when I started and now it is completely wrecked.
I made my card for the Inspired By Stamping challenge--IBSIC#48. I have fallen in love with their stamps and use them quite often. My sentiment is from IBS and is called Flowers Bloom.
This is my inspiration photo. What a wonderful sight. I was inspired by the colors and pretty flowers.
The fern die is a Spellbinders Shapeabilities Foliage set and the window which I am just using as lattice is from Cheery Lynn Designs/A2 Frame die small.
My paper is PTI white cardstock and Stampin'Up Pretty in Pink and Sage Shadow. I'm thinking the green isn't right but mine had the name sage in it so I went with it. The patterned paper is an unknown scrap. I wish my pink was lighter but I ruined the only light piece I had with the first attempt. Ugh! My flower is a Prima and I'm thinking looking a bit large. One of those days!!! You know you've had them. Right?? :-)
My card is also entered into The Crafty Bloggers Network Challenge Blog-#9 where the theme is Spring or Pastel.
