Oh boy - what a week it has been. Within 24hrs of my son bringing home this cold/flu from school the rest of the family came down with it too! :( I had one off school for days and a sick cranky toddler, sick hubby and I felt like death warmed up. Not much fun in Summer I assure you. Thankfully although nasty while you have it, it lasted *only* 3 days! (A very long 3 days - I didn't even look at my craft room during that time!) So ---- now that I'm feeling better it was time to start creating again and what better way than making a Beautiful Botanical card for the JustRite Challenge this week (JRC_006) which you can find on the JustRite Stampers Blog!
I started with some pink bazzill, layered with Certainly Celery, white (punched with the Fiskars Eyelet Lace Embossing Border Punch) and two strips of some Imaginisce paper that I found in my stash. Around this I added some white satin ribbon and above that a pink panel cut and embossed with the Spellbinders Eyelets Pendant die. Popped on top of that I've stamped the Sweet Peas from JustRite's My Garden set in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with markers and a blender pen (regal rose and old olive). To finish I added a white satin bow and some Kaisercraft Snow Pearls to the ribbon and the pendant.
