Today starts my vacation. I think I'm excited! It will be a super busy week. Instead of Spring cleaning, we will be doing Fall cleaning. Inside from top to bottom and outside, too. I'm hoping to be able to get into my crafty room at some point, but I don't know. I may be to tired!!
Well, enough of my chitty chat.
Today starts the new challenge at Paper Playtime. Our fearless leader Janis has challenged us to use 'pearls' on our project. I couldn't decide what I wanted to make. I thought about all of the beautiful cards I've seen with all these embellies and pearls all over them, but that just isn't my style. I cranked up my laptop and got into my Cameo software to see what I had there. I picked this great card base by Lori Whitlock. It is called 'Wave'. It is #44894 in the Silhouette Store. The one in the store had cloud paper on it, so I went with that on mine. Now, what to add to it. Went searching some more and found this adorable bird I had bought. It is called Imaginisce Bird and is #41942. I cut both the card base and the bird at the sizes that they download into the software at. I did cut an extra base and top layer for the inside and then made another piece smaller for the inside of my card. I popped up my bird with one thickness of foam tape. I didn't cut the eye for the bird as I wanted to use a black faux half pearl instead. This and the pearl flourish is from Recollections. The sentiment is from the 'Heartfelt Wishes' stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps. You can get your very own set right here. But ya know what, you just might be lucky enough to win a set if you enter our challenge. Mary is our sponsor and will be giving away one of her stamp sets. But you have to enter our challenge to have a chance to win!! Head on over to Paper Playtime and check out the rules to our challenges and while you are there check out the creations that my DT Sister's have made for inspiration. Awesomeness for sure!!!! Then head on to your crafty space and create something and use some pearls on it, then link it up by Sunday, September 1st. So looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
Hope ya'll like my card!!!! :)
