Take Flight

Today I'm super excited!  While you are reading this I'm at work, but I will be heading to visit our Blogger's Challenge "Mom" this afternoon at the York, PA Heirloom Stamp Show.  Looking forward to visiting with Lisa and meeting lots of new friends at the show and visiting with some older ones as well.

This week our theme is "Take Flight" and I had the perfect card already made for this challenge.  I created over 20 cards for the last Paper Crafts call, but sadly not one of them were picked up.  I'm keeping positive in the face that I have lots of wonderful cards already created that I have to share on my blog in the next few months.

Since I already had created this card, I thought I would add another one to the mix using a different theme, but the same color scheme.
Card details:
Stamps: Love in the Air by Our Craft Lounge
Cardstock: Summer Sunrise, Night of Navy, Gina K. Luxury White, Authentique-Genuine
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Night of Navy, copics
Embellishments: SU Rhinestones colored with B93 copic, dimensionals

Again, I combined a few challenges on the card above and the sketch definitely had me stumped with the two little "wing" pieces.  Following my goal of being timely in participating in the Sketch For You to Try for the year.

I started off with a favorite stamp of mine, the Sweet Pea set from There She Goes and decided to go against my natural instinct of grabbing my black or brown ink and used my True Blue Fan from Clear & Simple Stamps instead.  I didn't add a variety of color to the flowers, just wanted to go with the yellow.

I punched some small holes on either side of the flowers and tied my twine through there.  I saw on someone's blog (and now I can't remember whose it was...my apologies) using a pearl on top of the button and loved it.  I colored my pearl with my copic marker.

If you have stuck with me through all this, thank you!  Hope you enjoyed the artwork and that you will join us for Blogger's Challenge this week.

I love the way you echoed the chevrons on your balloon card! It's interesting how different the colors look on differently themed cards.
