Make a card today!



I'm sure you all know what today is, but never-the-less I'm going to say it again. It's WORLD CARD MAKING DAY! Are you going to be making cards today? I'm hoping to find some time to get into my studio and accomplish a few things myself. I have heard word that several prizes are out there for the taking! So hop around and see what you can find.
In the meantime, here is a card I made last weekend.


  Orange is my favorite color, and I love it combined with pink! My mom always decorated our home in pink and orange for the Christmas Holiday and I like to do the same. No red and green for us!
This card is for my niece, Kayla. She turns 18 this month and I'm so excited for her. (She doesn't read my blog, so I'm safe in posting it!) Isn't it fun?
Just some simple stamping on the card base using a scroll-y stamp from PTI's Vintage Label, an actual label stamp, a large damask image from Damask Designs and a sentiment from Mega Mixed Messages. Not many layers or embellishments besides a few black buttons, a simple black rhinestone and some grosgrain ribbon. Oh, and I added some glitter using a spica glitter pen.

Can you see it here? Not vey well I guess. Well you'll just have to imagine it then! *smile*
Alright, enough chatting, I'm off to take care of some chores and hopefully find some time to make a card today. Happy WORLD CARD MAKING DAY!
Thanks for stopping by!

Nicely done! I really like the colors! I don't know about you, but I'm not ready to say good-bye to summer yet and this really captured summer to me!

Great color combination. I have to remember this one. Great card design too.

Is it strange that the color combo makes me think of a fruity, slushy cocktail??
"Fresh" is a great description! very pretty!
