Today's card is for my dear friend Chris who is this week's Featured Stamper at SCS!!!! Chris is such a sweet, fun, wonderful person with a huge heart and I was absolutely THRILLED to see her chosen this week, so finally after my chaotic week I have found a chance to make a card in her honour!!! I was inspired by her Happiness Blooms card and slightly changed the layout, changed the colours, punch and image, moved the pearls around and omitted the button.
I decided to go with soft, pretty colours and started with a base of Very Vanilla and layered with green bazzill, pink bling bazzill and DCWV Nana's Nursery Girl DSP. The horizontal strip is more pink bling bazzill with one edge punched with the Martha Stewart Lattice Arch border punch, layered with more DCWV DSP. Around this panel I added some 1" ivory satin ribbon. The main panel has been made using the Special Occasions Font and Center Set by JustRite. I stamped it in black and coloured it with markers and a blender pen. It was cut out using the Large Oval Nestabilities and matted with pink bling and Very Vanilla layers cut with the Label 4 Nestabilities and then popped up on foam tape. To finish I added some tiny Kaisercraft Rose Pearls to the image panel and larger ones to the corners and finally attached an ivory satin bow made with my Bow Easy.
