Hi there beautiful blog people!
Wow, where did that weekend go? I've been out a lot with my two boys this weekend - Karate Grading, Birthday Parties and an evening of bonfires and fireworks. Now it's down to ironing and helping my husband pack for his business trip next week.
I have just finished moving all my crafty bits and pieces into my very own crafty space upstairs and it was so blissful creating this card in there today! I was absolutely bowled over by this months CASE Study muse, Angeline and all the fantastic creations by their amazing DT.
When I saw the card I knew I just had to get involved. I adore the current CR84FN colours of Gray, Tan and Cream so decided to combine the challenges for a match made in crafty heaven!
I was drawn to the graduated colour of the cardstock strips and the gorgeous negative die cut sillhouettes on Angelines card, so I decided to use my new My Favorite Things Die-namics Chevron Stripes to create the cream and tan background. Once I had secured the chevrons into place with glue, I used the My Favorite Things Medium Leafy Flourish Die to cut out the beautiful shape from my custom cardstock background. I then backed it with some smoky grey cardstock - I went for a slightly darker grey for contrast against those neutral colours.
I added a few pearls, some cream cotton lace and some ivory faux silk ribbon. The sentiment is from PTI's Asian Fusion stamp set and is stamped using Frayed Burlap Distress Ink.
Thank-you so much for visiting today. Please leave me a comment if you like what you have seen today ;). Have a great week.
