Have you ever had one of those days when you really want to make a card but just cannot come up with any ideas? Well I had one of those days today. I wanted to make a card for the current LOTV challenge but could not make up my mind what to do. It should have been quite simple really because the lovely Dawn has given us a great sketch to work with and there are some fab DT cards on the blog for inspiration, but no - nothing!!
I spent hours looking at all the entries and the various blogs I follow that I know have shown LOTV cards, including the obvious - LOTV Ideas to Inspire - but still nothing. So I did the sensible thing - I walked away, made a coffee and sat down with some chocolate - guaranteed to inspire!! After some more blog hopping, I came up with this -
The paper is from Nitiwts - Breath of Fresh Air. I really love this paper but do you think I could find a suitable colour card to mat it on? Of course not - aaaarrrgh. So, I settled on drawing faux stitching around the edges just to add some interest.
The image is a new stamp from LOTV Love and Romance collection called Together Forever and is coloured with Promarkers. The hearts were cut on the Cricut and I layered some white organza ribbon onto a strip of the pink paper and voila, finished. Well, apart from decorating the inside of course.
I am not sure if I am completely happy with it but having spent hours faffing around and wanting to get the card entered into the challenge, I am not going to do any more with it.
Anyway, I hope you like and thank you so much for looking.
