Since I started working full time six weeks ago, I have developed a new and passionate appreciation for the phenomenon of the Public Holiday *grin* We had one this weekend just gone, and it was the perfect combination of activity and recharging.
One of the 'activity' portions of the weekend was the engagement party of some lovely friends on Sunday evening, and I loved partaking of the leisurely creation of this card on Sunday morning...
I really wanted to use the beautiful Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper, as I simply had to have it after seeing it in real life and haven't used it nearly enough. It's tricky to take a photo that adequately conveys the beauty of this paper - even the photo in the catalogue/online store doesn't do it proper justice, so you really have no option but to do what I did and grab some for yourself... ;-)
I chose the spotted Soft Sky design out of the pack, so continued on with the pale blue/neutral colour scheme of the paper by sponging a pale Soft Sky background, stamping in a combination of Crumb Cake and Soft Suede, and adding some sweet wooden hearts from the Hearts & Stars Elements.
The Banners for You stamp set was the perfect choice for the sentiment, as would the coordinating Bunch of Banners Framelits have been had I not accidentally left them at work after taking them in for a project I was working on. So if you promise not to look too closely/judge my hand cutting, here's a close up...
Not one to easily let go of a newly discovered and super fun technique, I revisited the splattery embossed background element from last week's 40th card, and I still love it just as much.
I hope your weekend was as delightful as mine, whether it was three days long, or the standard two. Thanks for sharing some of your Tuesday with me!
