Today's card is very simple and easy. I have been struggling with a cold or allergies, or something and trying to do anything more complex just wasn't going to happen. Between the coughing, sniffling, sneezing, sore throat, and the shaking from the cold medication, I think I'm lucky to have gotten this much done. Anyway, I will be entering this card into 3 challenges:
1. I (heart) sketches
2. Flutter By Wednesday
use a sentiment with butterfly or fairy
3. The Perfect Sentiment
color challenge: coral, aqua blue, and late
Here is my interpretation of these challenges:
"Late" card stock from Recollections.
Very Vanilla card stock from Stampin' Up
Marina Mist card stock from Stampin' Up
Coral Print Paper from DCWV A Type of Art mat stack
Sentiment printed from computer
Butterfly digital stamp from Tidbits Trinkets Images colored with oil pencils
Orange resin flat back flower
Marina Mist coordinating bias tape (not from Stampin' Up, but not sure of brand).
I think this turned out to be a beautiful sympathy card.
Before I finish this entry, I want to thank Brenda at BBTB2. I was chosen as project of the week for my April Showers entry! Very exciting!
Have a great day!
- I am a 37 year old nurse who is currently not working due to medical issues. I have chosen to pass my time crafting, but because I am not working, I have little money to spend on supplies. I have a small stash from while I was still working but am now using what I have access to around the house. I also use things I can find cheaply at the dollar store, in the dollar bins, on clearance, or buy with coupons at Michaels and Hobby Lobby. I also like to shop thrift stores and garage sales for things to use in my crafting. You would be surprised with what you can find if you aren't afraid to prowl a little.
