You Are Loved {A LOT}

** 11/11/16 Party Pick at PDE Linky Party! **

Hi everyone! Happy Saturday - hope you've had an amazing week! The temps are dropping slightly here and we are looking forward to an awesome weekend! It's time for another fun challenge over at Crafty Friends Challenge Blog and I'm super stoked to share my DT inspiration project for Challenge #44 - Card for Someone Special! We have some amazing sponsors this time:

I chose to use the DigiStamps4Joy 'Anemone Corner' digi for my special card. This card truly is special, as it was for my granddaughter's 13th birthday a few weeks ago. Love, love, love how it turned out! I printed the image on watercolor paper and heat set it so I could do some watercoloring with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a Niji brush. What an amazing image!

This is a clean and simple design with a few mini ink splatters created with an Amethyst Spectrum Noir Sparkle marker and some sequins, layered on silver mirror cardstock. That's it!

I popped the layered image up on foam for interest. I used Crystal Drops on the centers of the flowers to create a little dimension.

I decorated the inside with a single strip of leftover silver mirror cardstock used on the front, and the stamped birthday sentiment.

I'm proud to to enter my granddaughters' birthday card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Premium White cardstock, GKD Wild Lilac cardstock, Marco's Silver Mirror cardstock
  • Stamps: DigiStamps4Joy 'Anemone Corner' digital image, Stampin' Up! Grateful Bunch (front sentiment), GKD Fabulous Holiday Fillers (inside sentiment)
  • Ink: Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers- Deep Violet, Light Green, Deep Green; Spectrum Noir Aqua- Bud Green; Spectrum Noir Sparkle- Amethyst; Stampin' Up! Elegant Eggplant ink
  • Accessories: Niji brush, Clear Wink of Stella, English Mustard Crystal Drops, Purple Doodlebug Design sequins

I hope you've enjoyed today's project and have found a little inspiration to play in our 'Card for Someone Special' challenge this time! Be sure to visit Morgan's Artworld, DigiStamps4Joy and Crafty Sentiments Designs! Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time! ;)
