Good morning friends. Playing along with this weeks Merry Monday Challenge, and I'm loving the color combo they've asked us to use...SO pretty! I love aqua and white together, and then being able to add any splash of color of our choice is just the icing on the cake! I had just picked up a piece of DSP by Echo Park a few weeks ago called Cozy Cardinals, and it was the perfect starting point for my card today. Take a look:
The DSP was two sided, so I used both sides and then added a strip of white that I used a snowflake punch (MS) on to join the two sides together. For my center panel I stamped the pine tree from SU!'s "Lovely As A Tree" in Aqua Mist ink, and then embossed my sentiment in silver (PTI's "Think Big Favorites #21"). I stamped a red cardinal (PTI's "In the Meadow") on the top of the embossed "P", and then added some Dazzling Diamonds snow spots to the background. I matted both layers with Real Red cs to match the cardinals. Love how quickly this card came together for me and just the overall softness of it! :0)
There's still lots of time to play along with this challenge, and LOTS of beautiful cards to be inspired by over at the Merry Monday blog.
Thanks so much for stopping by today, and have a wonderful Wednesday. Road trip today to my oldest daughters to inspect how the nursery's coming along! She's 26 weeks today, so we're getting closer and I'm just SO excited to be a grandma that I can hardly stand it! I don't want to wish summer away after such a LOOOOONG winter, but.........
