CARDS Blog Challenge!

Good Evening Blog Hoppers! I am way excited and this is my secong post for the day so be sure to scroll down for the card I shared earlier! The other night I had a spare few minutes in my studio to relax from college design work and I stumbled across CARDS BLOGs last challenge. I thought I'd give it a go!

The challenge was to create a card inspired by the card below. This card was SO inspiring, the mix of colours and polka dots & scallops a few of my favourite things at the mo!

With it being Valentines Day soon I decided I should create a LOVE themed card and I will at least have a card to give Karl if I have no more time to make anymore! Lol!

I stamped the polka dots in vintage cream ink onto kraft CS. I then used a leaf from Turning a New Leaf from PTI and stamped this onto very vanilla CS. The sentiment is from PTIs Handwritten Notes. I layered up scalloped CS in aqua and chocolate and tied linen thread around them. A heart, a flower and a couple of gems added the finishing touches.

{Ingredients}
CS: PTI Kraft, Aqua Mist, Raspberry Fizz and Dark Chocolate. SU! Very Vanilla
Stamps: PTI Turning a New Leaf, Handwritten Notes & Polka Dot Basics. Hero Arts Cupcakes CL168
Ink: SU! Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Friskars Apron LAce Punch, Linen Thread, SU! Flower Accent, Crystal Gems, Foam Pads.

I am super super excited that my card is featured over on the CARDS BLOG HERE! I'm looking forward to participating in their next challenge - hopefully I will find a few minutes to make a card this weekend!

Thanks for stopping by!
