Last day of the weekend!!! Sundays are always hard for me, I want to get so much done on the last day of the weekend. Yesterday, I spent the day with my middle son, Owen. He had a Cub Scout Outing, had lunch together, and did a little shopping together. No crafting but a nice day with my little guy!!
Today I am crafting!!!! Isn't this a sweet card??!!!
This card is totally out of my comfort zone!!! First off the colors are colors I never pick, soft and muted. Pretty though!!! I love trying color challenges, it pushes me to use colors that I don't think about using! I used these colors for a color challenge at:http://thedynamicduoschallenge.blogspot.com/
I used Pink Pirouette, and Whispering White and, Pool Party. I wanted to keep this card muted and soft so I used a lot of white. I used this sketch from: http://mojomonday.blogspot.com/
I have always wanted to enter a challenge at Mojo but haven't been able to hit it just right yet. I adored this sketch!!! The dotting around the outside of the card layer was an element I wanted to keep very true in my card. I used the paper piercing Essentials pack to help me keep my dots nice and lined up! I love these paper piercing packs! You can pierce with them or use markers! I used my Stampin' Up Pool Party marker.
My theme for my card was from: http://drunkenstampers.wordpress.com/
As soon as I saw the theme, I thought of the new Oh, Whale! set from Stampin' Up. I haven't played with this set before today. Let me tell you it is fast becoming a favorite! I also used the matching clearlit that cuts out the whale, Happy Whale, and I used the Stamp Wheel, Oh, Wave! as well. I love playing with new toys!!!
I used the new bottle caps and smooshed them in my Big Shot. I never tire of smooshing those bottle caps!!! I used the Itty Bitty Stamp set to put a fish in the bottle cap.
I hope you enjoyed this fun card! Remember if you like the whale set and matching accessories, grab them up before the Spring catalog goes away!!!!
