I am attempting to maintain a blog filled with random bits from my life and family as well as my adventures in crafting.

Just A Note...

Cricut, Forever Young, Modern Wallpaper, Embossing, Cuttlebug
I am so excited how this card all came together!  When I pulled out my black and white scraps to go through for a couple challenges, I had a few pieces of, I guess, damask pattern paper and I immediately thought of my sister. She just finished up a semester towards her 2nd Bachelor's Degree and has many more to go; I'm super proud of her and wanted her to know that and give her a bit of encouragment, so she was my inspiration for this card.  Anyway, My Creative Time's challenge is to create a black & white card, while HIMCR is having the Super Scraps Saturday challenge.  I pulled out my Forever Young cartridge and found a model with, what looked like to me, a maxi dress and I knew that's the one to use for my sister.  I also cut the frame and shadow frame behind her from the same cart.  I did emboss my white mat with the Cuttlebug's Modern Wallpaper embossing folder, and I LOVE how it looks.  I embellished the card with a matching flower and two buttons, added the sentiment on the bottom and called it complete!  An Inky Situation also has a challenge to use buttons, so I'll be entering it there too.  I really hope my sis likes this card, I think it turned out great.  I have a video on how it all came together, hope you'll check it out!
