Hope you are all enjoying your weekend! I have the house to myself and plan to do as much crafting as I can! Last night I made a card for the Muse Challenge #78 where sweet Bev from Happy Dance is this week's Muse. Look at the beautiful card she provided for our inspiration:
I have been wanting to make a card featuring one of those popular polaroid frames for a long time! Thank you, Bev, for providing the motivation! Besides the frame I also used striped DP and the scalloped edge from her card.
Stamp: My Sentiment's Exactly
Dies: Nestabilities (Squares), My Favorite Things (scalloped edge)
Embellishments: McGill (butterfly punch), Prima (flower), Making Memories (Brad)
It's so easy to match papers when you use a paper pad because designers did all the work for you! Since I don't have a polaroid frame die I used a square die and then cut around it. The brad was a lucky find from my stash. Had to add the butterfly because I felt that big flower needed some balance...
This one also goes to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge "Anything Goes".
And now, as promised, a few impressions of Venice. Despite being overrun by tourists it is breathtakingly beautiful and has an unique charm! We all loved it! The last photo was taken by my niece (hope you don't mind, Ines) and shows my sons and I (or is it my sons and me - I never know! Help, English majors/teachers!).
And, no, they are not (yet) as tall as I am; we were standing on an arched bridge...
Off to link up and make another card...
So glad you came by,
