Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #44

Well, Monday came way too fast. It always does, I don't know why I'm surprised! I did manage to complete Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #44 last night, but the lighting was not great for this photo. (I still need to get one of those light tents, and TexasGrammy commented before that I need to speak to her before doing that, so I must call her!) I also made this card for a group challenge "Something Old, Something New"...the something old is the Looks Like Spring set, and the something new was my Nestabilities square scallop die-cut, which was awesome by the way, so I see *more* of those in my near future!!

Anyway, back to the card, it's fairly straightforward...Afternoon Tea DSP and even splurged on a Build-a-Brad. I used the Argyle stamp from Looks Like Spring behind the flower focal point, but you really can't see it. When I showed dh he said, "Well, it's certainly busy." So I added the paper piercing in the corners, just to show him. lol! He's actually very supportive, he just prefers the clean and simple style.

Okay, better get ready for work now. I did manage to walk a mile this morning, after a 3 day hiatus, shame on me! I *HATE* to admit it, but I do feel better when I do it. Ugh! Have a great Monday!

Recipe Stamps: Looks Like Spring. Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Groovy Guava, Soft Sky, Whisper White, Afternoon Tea & Wild Wasabi Prints DSP. Ink: Versamark, Wild Wasabi. Accessories: Heat & Stick Powder, Heat Gun, Celery Fine Cosmo Glitter, Scallop Circle Punch, Paper Piercer, Build-a-Brad, 3/4" Circle Punch, Wild Wasabi Double Stitched Ribbon, Slit Punch, Square Scallops Nestabilities.

ha ha - that sounds like a comment my DH would say, but he usually gives very good constructive feedback. I LOVE your card, esp the glitter on the flower. let me know what Beverly says about that light thing! I'd be curious, I thought about it too, but no room for it (and it's not in the budget) so I've been using my photo editing program to lighten the shadows & I think it looks pretty good now. Yea, I hate to admit exercising makes me feel good too. Keep up the good work!

I'm like you, I have no idea where the weekend went at all. Your card is so pretty! I'm very envious that you got the square nestabilities. I'm waiting on some rectangle ones. They work like a charm though don't they?

I really love how you used the Looks like Spring flower.
