Thanks with a Favorite Color

Hello Crafty Friends,

I wanted to share a new card I created and I have to say I really like it. I used my favorite color, which is brown, and I tried making distressed flowers. They look good, but I am not sure how they are going to fit into the envelope. This card just may have to stay on my shelf. : )

Materials:
DCWV ~ Natural stack
Forever Young cartridge ~ flower #4 (p. 67)
brown and gold brads
K&Company gold medallion
brown Inkadinkadoo ink
Fiskars "thanks" stamp
water ~ for scrunching petals
   
Challenges:


Have you stopped by Fantabulous Cricut today? I am the Sunday Spotlight Guest. How exciting! It is not quite being published ina magazine (which is one of my goals this year), but it sure is great being recognized.


If you haven't entered the Die Cuttin' Diva Birthday Celebration Giveaway, please do so today. The winner will be announced on Tuesday when the new challenge is posted.

Hope you have a great day,
Georgiana

  1. Your card came out really nice. I hate that after you make a card you realize that it won't fit in an envelope...lol...That's when I make my own envelope for it. hahaha TFS.

  31. Beautiful card! Cut a piece of small bubble wrap, cover the card front, and put this wonderful creation into a larger envelope...write "handstamp" on the outside and send it to someone that you love! :0)
