This card started as a shameless copy of this card by hobbydujour but it took on a life of its own. I got a new Martha Stewart punch at Michaels, 30% off. Well, this 13 dollar punch minus 30% has 3 stamps that fit in a cutesy little compartment above the stamp so you can do a 3 step flower then punch it out. I think I got my money's worth out of that coupon for sure!
Oh do I ever wish I hadn't broken my cuttlebug. Look at how this card looks with nesties. Oh well, this is my rendition. I was amazed to see how little purple paper I own. So out with the ink pad and scrape across some aqua paper. Did you realize I had done that? Of course you did.
The Christmas house is in response to the teapot challenge to brighten up the teapot and add some color. Nothing like Christmas to add a little color!
Mojo Monday had a really cute sketch - I love how my card came out. It took a long time to dry because of an overabundance of stickle sparkle. Technique of the day is retiform at Splitcoast and here is my card, outside and in. I have a good start on Christmas cards this year. It was easy once I let go of the idea of all cards being the same. Everyone I know will be getting a DIFFERENT card this year, isn't that fun!
Here is a direct quote from Donna C but I love the sentiment and can't say it any better than she did ...
