Well thank you for the warm welcome back! I very much enjoyed hearing from some of you via comments here on my blog and also on my facebook page and the emails that were sent, I was happy to know that some people are still reading my blog and had not given up on me after that break. I have been busy taking photos of cards I have made and not yet blogged, I now need to just do one super long catch up post.
This card I am sharing today was for CASE Study 128 with Teri Anderson as our Fabulous February muse, I am really enjoying her cards and I have even been happy with what I created inspired by her talents and ability to create “paper artworks”. To the left you will see this weeks card to take inspiration from.
Below is my take on Teri’s card, I started with the colours I have used So Saffron and Island Indigo from Stampin’ Up! as the main colours with a little Crumb Cake sponging.The layout and circle placement on Teri’s card, was used on my card with the paper design of the circles and the strip of Island Indigo across the bottom of the card. I have added ribbon in place of string, and a clear Vintage Faceted button over the button, I felt like they were like the buttons Teri used in the center of some of her circles. You will notice I have added a few extra layers but that’s the way I roll, I am not as CAS as Teri.
So as you know I adore the insides of my cards to look as pretty as the outside, I try and carry over the design from the front in a simple way. I played around with the inside alot this time around, at first I had the same paper as the front inside where the newsprint is now but it was just too busy looking, the newsprint looks much better.
Sometimes and I would like to highlight that it is only “sometimes” I have a strike of genius… but my friends I have had a strike and I am glowing with proudness!!!! Did you notice the cute little scallop I have on the front and inside my card? YES? Are you wondering what it is…..
Thanks for stopping by!
