Card Recognition

Wednesday, January 26, 2011

Etsy Inspired thank you for you



I saw this flower pendant on Nanny's Room on this week's Etsy Inspired challenge and I thought of the Martha Stewart flowers I won from Kim.  Jenny's celebrating "Free Your Creativity" over at Wee Memories and I thought trying a stamped background would be something new and fun.  Especially when I turned it into a frame with my new Spellbinders Label 8.  I would've liked to stay truer to the colors in the pendant (because I have this literal problem), but I decided to add a blue background and focus on red and kraft (from the background).  And on a random positive note, my mom stopped by work today while I was trying to find a decent place to photograph this card and said that I can have a workspace in her house!  If you've read in some of my other posts I haven't unpacked anything, because I have no where to put it in our little 2 bedroom house.  So, yeah... for my future crafting space.

Materials: Martha Stewart flower clear stamp, PTI Fillable Frames #11 sentiment, Spellbinders Nestabilities Label 8, Versacolor Camellia, Studio G pink ink, red ribbon from stash, Stampin Up Red card stock, blue card stock from scraps, PTI kraft card stock
