Hi everyone. I just wanted to say how lucky we all are in this crazy crafting blog world. I have been going through a rough time lately and I have received so much support from everyone. Thank you all so much. Today, Sassy Studio Designs is sponsoring two great challenges. The first is Card Mania. Their challenge is Weddings and I am happy to say that I am a guest designer for them with my take on a dark wedding. We are also sponsoring The Crafty Bloggers Network. Their challenge is Anything Goes so this card works for them as well.
Crating has always been a stress reliever for me but lately, even crafting has failed me. However, I am really happy with the way this one came out. I almost zoned out while creating this and it was really a good feeling. I colored my SSD bride with Copics, cut her out and popped her up on SU dimensionals. I drew the fishnets on with a liner pen. The shoes have a touch of glossy accents on them. The paper is from my box-o'-scraps. The ribbon that you can barely see is from my nieces wedding. The black pieces are a from Irene's papers -n- things. It is a large flower and I cut it in half. I attached it with some Helmar 450 glue.
My inspiration for this card was my niece Becca. This is the type of thing she loves. I got her approval on it yesterday. Thanks Becca. Speaking of nieces, this weekend was one of the best I have had in ages. I got to spend it with two of my nieces. I spent Saturday with Bianca and Sunday with Kennedie. I love them both it was such a treat for me to spend time with them. Thanks girls.
Thanks for stopping by.
