Hello, my friends! I hope this day finds you happy and well!
Today marks the beginning of a new two week challenge at The Frilly and Funkie Blog! Sue is our hostess, and she'd like us to 'Let the words do the talking'. Sue loves to include meaningful sayings on her projects. For this challenge she asks to include words and sayings that are meaningful or inspiring to us.
At the end of the challenge the team will choose their top four picks. Our first place winner will be invited to join us in a Guest DT spot at the Frilly and Funkie Blog. Three additional talented participants will receive badges to display on their blogs. Everyone who enters and adheres to the challenge guidelines will be entered into a drawing to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique! For entry specifics and inspiration from my amazing teammates just click on the blog link above.
This is one of my favorite challenges. The Impression Obsession sentiment stamp (purchased from the Funkie Junkie Boutique) speaks volumes to me. I usually gift my cards to friends and loved ones, but I may keep this one for whenever I need a little pick-me-up.
Beautiful Prima papers are distressed, layered, and stitched to form a base for the card and it's embellishments. The photos below give you a close up peek of the layering. The detailed cuts for the sentiment and edges are created with Spellbinder's Labels 49 dies (also from The Funkie Junkie Boutique).
Embossing with a Prima stencil provides additional dimension, though much of it ended up beneath embellishments. Antique Linen Distress Paint gives a bit of color to the embossing paste.
Prima flowers get a splash of Tim Holtz distress stain.
You'll find a couple of chipboard accents a bit of shiny bling from my stash. Then there's the natural twine bow...
Thank you so much for coming by today. I send wishes for all things good and wonderful! Now it's time to head to your craft space and start creating. We're waiting to see your beautiful creations at The Frilly and Funkie Blog!
