I absolutely LOVE the colors at Play Date Cafe Challenge this week!! I decided to combine this challenge with Less is More's challenge this week which was to have a charm on your card! This is a redo of a card I made a couple days ago with the sentiment and charms being much lower and over to the right...I kept looking at it...couldn't put it up...didn't like my placement of the sentiment or of the butterflies either, so last night I redid it. I will save you all the gory details of my 8 or 9 FAILED attempts(darn those inky fingers always messing things up), but here's what I made...
I decided to use the shaping of the sentiment's stamp to cut the sentiment out, rather than cut it out with my own shaping(which is the way I did it on my first card).
I traced the shape over the stamped sentiment with a pencil and cut it out. I didn't have any charms, so I made my own with some flower rhinestones that I glued along with black wire. I used the same black wire and with the flowers attached and around the "o" of "of" with a blender pen, twirled the wire around the pen until it snapped off...making the charms loop.
I used Inkadinkado All Occasions and Papertrey Ink Beautiful Butterflies
Here's my first card I made for Play Date Cafe when I pulled some felt flowers out of the bottom drawer of supplies...long lost flowers. I couldn't decide what to do with them, but when I separated them, thought they looked cool...so put them on separate blocks and added Paper Smooches sentiment and colored with Melon Mambo and Tangerine Tango.
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
