What a beautiful day! What a wonderful world! What a great life! What a good everything! Well, I know it's kind of exaggerated but I want to keep optimism to a high level. Too many things happening in my beautiful Puerto Rico. Weak economy, unemployment, government taxes... and more. But I know we are not as bad as others in the sense that we have brothers and sisters from other parts of the world who are living worst nightmares. We'll hang in there... we'll survive. I wish no more young professionals left the island seeking greater success. We need them here. I appreciate your prayers for a better Enchantment Island really soon. Thank you!
Anyways, that was just a note. I'm stopping by to show you a card I made last night, inspired by several challenges. One is this from Curtain Call.
Isn't this gorgeous? I see the inspiration image and think of graduation, dresses, delicate things, love, fabrics, textures... and such great colors.
And then there's this great inspiration from current Unity Be Inspired Challenge. Similar colors to the Curtain Call's image, so my inspiration matched both color combos.
I also wanted to participate in the current Take it Make it Challenge from Craft Stamper. I would looooveee to see my work on this recognized magazine... so I keep sharing whenever possible. This time is an "Anything Goes" theme, so I'm sharing this one.
I made a card. Oh, I like it very much. I used Unity Stamp image and sentiment, patterned paper, gold paper, a nice cute garland with mini soft balls hanging on it, and sequins. It's kind of a CAS style even though there was some painting and cutting that could be time consuming for some, but the image is stamped and not colored, since I wanted the background to become THE color of this card.
How did I make the background? Just played with Distress Stain colors. I applied with the round applicator / tip ensuring it was wet so the color splashed. When dried I achieved exactly the colors I wanted, and then I stamped on it.
Here's a larger picture of the card. I hope you like it.
