Hello October!! Saturday was World Card Making Day and as much as I wanted to participate in all the activities, I couldn't because my much neglected scrap room was a wreck. So I dove in and decluttered and organized my chaotic mess. This morning, I pulled out my first kit to arrive this month - my beloved Simon Says Stamp Card Kit, looked up their latest challenge, and was very excited to start creating.
This week, it's "Anything Goes" with the option of using Clearly Besotted products:
Card sketch is from Retro Sketches, I knew how I wanted to interpret the sketch, but once I started shuffling around the GORGEOUS My Mind's Eye “My Story” papers from the kit and seeing how cute the kit stamp elements were with the heart and glasses and trendy sentiments, I had so many ideas in my head I didn't know what I wanted to use!! Finally, taking inspiration from Paper Issue's Pinspire Me Monday Mood Board, I was set. It was clear. I had my card all planned out.
Retro Sketches #184
Tall birdie element: I top-shadowed the gold heart with black cardstock to create the illusion of height
Narrow center strip: Used a flag strip die
Sentiment Strip: softened the edges with a curved element
Paper Issues: (P)inspire Me Monday
Color Combo: yellow, black and cream clock; red poppy field
Element: Heart shaped latte
Thanks for stopping by! Hugs and Happy Scrappin'!!!!
