I hope that you had a lovely week, and a peaceful weekend, filled with some quality time with your loved ones and some me time to unwind and prepare for the coming week. Thank God I had both, so I am very thankful.
Today I want to share with you another card I made with the New Release we had a few weeks ago at Belles 'nd Whistles. This stap is called "Surprise" , and this cute boy is ready to surprise someone.. who knows for what? MMmm.. can be birthday, Valentine's Day, Mother's Day.. anything actually. So you get it, this stamp can be used all year round. Isn't he charming? I love that whimsical smile he has!
I chose Friday's sketchers sketch for this boyish card, an I will be able to enter this for Charizma Cards, as they want something new (I have my new stamp).
I colour my sweet babe with Copics, and used Basic Grey's Archaic Papers. These are so lovely for boy's cards.. earth colours mostly. I kept the embellishments to a minimum, using a large button with embroidery floss, a brown flower with a dewdrop in the middle and some green dewdrops in the corners. I also made faux stitches around the image panel, and on the inside's jotting space. The image's edges are distressed with Peeled Paint Distress ink, and the inside's DP is done with Brushed Courduroy.
The brads on the sentiment arefrom Basic Grey's Collections. I just love those brads, they always give a lovely finish; whether you use te small or large ones. The sentiment is K&Co. I had that tin of sentiments and shapes for almost four years now :)
I left the jotting panel without any sentiment, to be able to choose what I want to use it for later.
I hope you remember that our Belles 'nd Whistles/Roses on Paper challenge is still running,and that when you do you can win a lovely prize set by Summer. This week's theme is : WINTER. Yes, we want to see a winter card. You can check all the details here.
I wish you all a happy week, and I thank you for coming to visit me. Excuse me for being absent for a couple of days, but I was very busy. Smiles!!!
Thanks for looking
