Always on my mind


I should be sleeping, but alas, here I am! :) I've got to be one of ~the~ slowest card makers out there! LOL

I started with a standard 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" card base of Chocolate Chip, then cut 3 2 x 5" strips of Soft Sky CS. I used my slit punch on the three strips and cut them to fit the card. Once they were the correct size, I positioned them and adhered them to the card base.

Next, I cut a 3 1/2 x 4 3/4" piece of Whisper White CS and stamped the Pretty Petals background image in Chocolate Chip. Once that was dry, I adhered it to the card base.

Then I stamped the flower from Pretty Amazing three times in Soft Sky, and the bird in Chocolate Chip ink onto Berry Bliss DS paper. I then cut out the different layers of the flower, and adhered each one with a pop-dot in between. I used my paper piercer to poke a hole in the middle for my Pretties Kit Rhinestone Brad. I then cut out the bird and attached it to the flower.

To finish things up, I adhered a 1 1/2 x 5 1/2" piece of Soft Sky CS to the card base, and added a piece of Chocolate Satin Ribbon. I then attached the flower and bird to the card base. The sentiment was stamped in Chocolate Chip ink and layered onto Soft Sky and Chocolate Chip CS ovals... Should've come together pretty quickly, but I'm slooooooow. :)

Enjoy your Sunday!
