Fabulous Girl Friday

Hey there, peeps! I am just loving daylight savings time right now. It's so awesome to have sunlight longer in the day. I feel so much happier and more productive when it's light out, and we're starting to get to that time where it's still light out here until almost 9 PM! Wooohooo! LOVE it! :)




Today's card was inspired by my new Girl Friday by Cosmo Cricket obsession. I LOVE this line of paper. Cosmo Cricket has been my favorite brand of designer paper for quite a while and this line is my all-time favorite. I loved the colors in this stripey paper, so I started coloring the flowers from Floral Symphony with some of the same colors. The different pieces are stamped three in a row, and then I sponged lightly around the panel with Creamy Carmel ink. I tried to use my new Lines and Dots border punch, but I misjudged where it was going to stamp and so had to cover up my mistake with a sliver of orange satin ribbon. This is matted on Tangerine Tango and punched with my new favorite - the EK Success Fleur de Lis border punch. {SO pretty!} :)

For the sentiment I stamped the sentiment from Beautiful Kindness, used a Copic marker to highlight the fabulous part, and then punched out with Petite Oval Nestabilities. It's matted on a Petite Scallop Nestability in Rose Red and I added some piercing and gel pen accents. For the finishing touch I stamped the flowers one more time, cut out the largest one and popped it up on the sentiment, adding some colored bling to the center of each flower. The card base is textured Pink Pirouette 5.25" x 5.5" (due to a cutting error on my part, but I like it just the same!) with the corners rounded.

Hope you have a fabulous day! Mine is scheduled for packing orders, packing orders and more packing orders - just like every other day this week! :)

    While I must admit I like having it LIGHT OUT when I'm bbq-ing dinner now, it's been a real pain dragging my butt outta bed in the morning when it's not light out yet!

  11. This is another gorgeous card. I need to whip out more of my tangerine tango... it's such a great color! So, on a random note, I got my new order of stamps today and realized you are in Meridian! I love that place! I tried to move to Meridian about a year ago (even found a house I loved off of Black Cat), but couldn't find a teaching job. My best friend lives in Nampa and I'm up there all the time. Ok. End the randomness. Thanks for the beautiful card you shared!
