I hope you had a fabulous weekend. It was very cold here in RI so we spent most of it just bundled up inside. Last week I got my pictures that I want to scrapbook in the mail, so that is what I will be working on this week. I made extra cards last week to share with you, however. I will try to post my cards for the various weekly challenges next week.
I got the inspiration for my card today from a "Just Cards" magazine. The base is a standard size card in Cameo Coral and then I added a layer of a "Baja Breeze" type blue that is from My Mind's Eye. I paper pierced all around the outside of this layer before adding a layer of Ruby Red that I ran through the CB with Swirls embossing folder. Next came the So Saffron layer. I used Versa mark and clear embossing powder with a stamp from SU's Polka Dots and Paisleys set for the background. For the three stamped panels, I used SU's Priceless stamp set with Baja Breeze, So Saffron, Ruby Red and Coral ink. I added the ribbon and the eyelets and finished the card.
Have a great day!
