Make it Monday #196 - Colorful Card Corners

Hello friends.  This weeks Make it Monday challenge is by Danielle and she shows us how to concentrate on decorating and making the focal point of our cards the corner.  I kept my card very simple but colorful to send my sister in law who is recuperating from surgery.  Take a look:



I love this simple little set from PTI called "Pretty Petals"!  This is definitely going to be one of my first go to stamp sets for when I need a quick but sweet card for someone!  I stamped the flower in Hawaiian Shores and Lemon Tart inks, and then masked the flower to add the French script background in Smokey Slate.  I added my cut out leaves to add a little dimension to the card.  The sentiment is from the "Think Big Favorites: #22".  I added a few iridescent sequins and a small piece of gray and white bakers twine to finish off this simple card.

If everything in your world is cold and white right now (like mine...brrrrrrrrrrr!!), make sure you check out Danielle's (and all the other entries) colorful card(s) over on Nichole's blog right here .

Thanks so much for stopping by...I love it when you do! :0)

  1. Marcia, I'm in love with how your background came out! (Is it wrong to love a background???) The card is a beauty, but that bg... and what perfection in stamping!
