I love u

Hi there! I made this card late night yesterday. So I'm here to put up this card real quick since I didn’t get time to do it yesterday. I used simple elements to embellish the card.

I always love using zig zag patterned paper and I got this one from K&Company double sided paper pad. Next to that, I took another scrap of card, created a little tab with it, and placed three tiny hearts. Then I added few strawberries on top of a paper thread and placed it just below the sentiment. The sentiment stamp was something that I had in my stash. I thought it coordinated perfectly so I used it for this card. The grass effect on the bottom of the card was created using Fiskars scallop border punch. It's a cool trick! I added some glossy accents to the tiny hearts and strawberries for some added shine. To finish off, I drew stitch lines around the tab and sentiment.

I'm submitting this card to the Simon Says Stamp challenge: Summer, Food and Drink. I adore Simon Says Stamp sets but unfortunately I don't own any yet! I hope and love to add one of those to my collection very soon. Be sure to check them all out over on the Simon Says Stamp store.

That's all for now, but I'll be back shortly :) Thank you so much for stopping by.

I'm so happy that I could find some time to craft on weekend. What a great feeling! :) Lately, I was inspired by The Play Date Cafe and their amazing challenge. I decided to play along with this week's color challenge : Cream, Melon and Cantaloupe. I love the color palette and made this card yesterday. Making a card with three colors was quite challenging for me but it was actually very interesting. I'm also entering this card in Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes Birthday challenge.
For this card, I used the Bold Basic patterned paper from Reollections. The birthday banner is adhered to the card using adhesive foam to give a little dimension. I love the birthday banner as it looks so cute on the card.

Thanks for stopping by!

Best Wishes

I hope everyone having a great weekend. Last night, I made this Best Wishes card using this week's Freshly Made Sketches sketch and the colors from Color Throwdown challenge: Tempting Turquoise, Kiwi Kiss, Pacific Point, Chocolate Chip and White. These colors are perfect for summer! I've made quite a lot of beach card. So, I've decided to make a simple greeting card this time. I got everything from a single pattern paper. It's actually a double sided paper from K&Company. The patterned paper and base card are edged in Chestnut Roan Chalk ink. I added a little ribbon and its done.

Thanks for stopping by!
