A very happy Monday to everyone! I trust that you all had a fabulous weekend and are ready for a splendid week. Our weather has been quite warm and humid with thunderstorms almost every evening and night...but that is so much better for me than SNOW!!!!
For this fortnight at the Wild Orchid Challenge our challenge is to use PINS and/or BRADS!!! We would love for you to come over and join in with us where there is always a wonderful prize from the Wild Orchid Crafts shop for some lucky participant!!!
For my card I used Bazzill for the base and all double matting and the DP is from the MME Memorable paper pad. The absolutely darling image I have used is sweet Ruby designed by the very talented Sylvia Zet of Wee Stamps for Whimsy Stamps. It looks as though she is sold out for the moment at Whimsy but she is certainly available as a digi from Sylvia right HERE. She was colored with Copics and Promarkers, adding a wee touch of Stardust Stickles to the lace on her blouse. For the left vertical I used a satin ribbon topped with a lovely Net Lace from WOC along with a Large Pearl Brad for the center of the double bow. All of the flowers, pearls, and pins are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I have used Small Gardenias, Cosmos Daisies, Chrysanthemum, and Sweetheart Blossoms. You can see that I also used some Heart Pins and some Decorative Crown Pins, finishing the front of the card with Self-Adhesive Pearls.
For the inside of the card I merely used the same DP from the front adding a couple of satin bows and a Heart Charm.
And for the back of the card, I used just some leftover snippets of DP with my personalized stamp.
I hope you like my little creation and will decide to come on over to Wild Orchid Challenge and show us how you use PINS and/or BRADS!
Oh my goodness...I was just looking through my STUFF and found an extra little Ruby who is desperately searching for a new home!!!! If you would like to adopt her (she will be travelling with some other goodies to her new home), please just leave a comment on this posting and I will announce on Wednesday who the winner is...
Thank you so much for dropping by today and I would love to know what you think of my little Ruby. Have a wonderful week and I hope to see you back real soon! Tomorrow is the Peek Day for the new Whimsy Collection so you know there will be a touch of SWEET STUFF for someone!! Until the next time, I send BIG HUGS!!
