Hi Everyone. Happy Wednesday night.
Tonight's card is a RAK for a young woman fighting breast cancer - another RAK I did for Sparkly Hannah Day! I saw this wonderful sketch challenge on just-add-ink and decided it would make a perfect layout for the RAK card. Of course, I absolutely had to use pink - and my favorite Flores Suaves set. Don't forget to pop along and see the fabulous design team inspiration - and submission cards. I know you will find something you love.
Adelle, I finally found a perfect card for Blushing Bride - as per your request :-) Even better, I found THE perfect ribbon to co-ordinate with it. Pity it's retired! I was really happy with the result.
Card recipe: (all supplies SU unless noted)
- Card stock: Blushing Bride, Whisper White
- DSP: Subtles DSP (love this newly reconfigured DSP)
- Stamps: Flores Suaves (butterflies). Sentiment non-SU
- Accessories: Purely Pomegranate satin ribbon, Basic Pearls (colored with copics)
- Inks: Basic Grey for the sentiment. Copic markers for coloring
So, what do you think? I was really happy with it. It's one of the few times I have used Blushing Bride and I must say, I really think it coordinates beautifully with the Purely Pomegranate. I think I might have to go to the clearance rack and order some more. I really do love SU satin ribbon. It's just so gorgeous to tie.
Rach, I know you will understand why I chose to use butterflies for my sparkly hannah day RAKs :-)
On a personal ntoe:
MORE cards on the way for our Operation Write Home Christmas card drive. Soozie let me know that she had posted 80 cards for our drive. YAY!!! Way to go, Soozie. You are awesome. I thank you from the bottom of my heart - and you know that you will have made 80 service men/women - and their families very happy. Don't forget..... if you have some old Christmas cards sitting around that you haven't used, or maybe don't want to use this year.... please consider putting them into an envelope or a little box and sending them to help out our drive. You still have a couple of days to get them to me.
Shout out to Beverly, too. She knows why! Jan..... I heard the weather in Perth was fabulous whilst you enjoyed yet another long weekend down under!
So.. I decided to add a twist to Wednesdays...... world-wide-web-wednesday. the night when I showcase a couple of cards I found this week that really tickled my fancy one way or another!
