Excuse me while I pick myself off the floor!
I know, I know! My SECOND post of the day!!!
Obviously, I've had WAY too much fun this weekend making cards :-)
But I couldn't resist this week's Color Throwdown Challenge to use Red, Grey/Silver & White, especially after seeing all the amazing inspiration on the blog.
I think I spent more time going through all my DP stash than I did putting this card together. And yes, that means I have A LOT of DP stash! And who can blame me? If they didn't make the stuff so darn pretty ...
I began by stamping a white card panel with the Rubbernecker French Script Background in SU Smoky Slate ink. The grey DP was cut with the PTI Mighty Blooms Cover Plate, then I proceeded to add back some sections that I cut from other, complimentary DP, allowing the French Script to show through some of the negative spaces. The word "Birthday" was diecut 3 times, glued together and popped up. The final touch was to add a bit of bling to the centre of the "flower" image. It was a toss up between this matching red glittery "ring", or a large clear rhinestone. It seems the ring won.
Once completed, I glued my card to a final layer of Stampin' Up Riding Hood Red.
Happy Sunday & thanks for dropping in!
