This card took me forever to complete, but I am so happy with it! I started with the recent Mojo sketch. I knew I wanted a really pretty card I could send to a friend for her birthday (I know quite a few folk with March birthdays!!). Picking colors took a long time because I don’t have a lot of embellishments the same color as the ink/paper I chose, but I worked it out.
Before I packed up I received some new rubber from Stampin’Up, but I didn’t have a chance to play, so this is my first inking of Echoes of Kindness, and I love these images! I really enjoy watercoloring, so line-art is usually a good choice for me.
I also bought an Ornare template and this is the first use of that as well. The piercing really gives it a nice touch. Once I got everything stamped and pierced, I wasn’t sure where I was going to put the sentiment, but I liked adding another layer to the focal panel. The trick became finding appropriate fasteners. When will SU realize that we *need* brads in InColor colors?? These little rhinestone brads by Making Memories were close enough in color I could get away with it 🙂
The inside is becoming another little canvas for me…so fun to decorate!
