C4C223 - Hello

Hello! I hope your weekend is off to a great start! :) We've had a ton of snow lately, so we've managed to use up our available built-in snow days.  It's looking like they'll be going to school until July! Lol... My parents made a surprise visit on Valentine's Day, and ended up taking an extra passenger back to their house (our daughter).  She couldn't have been happier (my parents are her two most favorite people in the world), and it will help reduce the cabin fever by giving her a change of scenery. :)

My card today is for the current Crazy 4 Challenge C4C223 challenge, which is a sketch challenge.  This week's challenge was a bit of a toughie for me... I probably cheated a little bit by flipping the sketch and using splatter for the upper panel (hehe, oops!), but nonetheless, I got it done.  Yessssss! :)

To create my card, I started with a light gray card base, and used a paint brush to flick drops of pearlized paint onto the upper left corner.  The effect is very subtle, but adds some great shimmer when looking at it IRL. :) Next, I die cut 7 hello sentiments (6 from white cardstock, and 1 from yellow cardstock), and adhered them together.

I then stamped the flower and leaf images from Avery Elle's Petals & Stems set onto white cardstock and cut them out.  After that, I adhered a strip of patterned paper to the card front, as well as some Teal Twine from Whisker Graphics.  To finish up my card, I adhered the sentiment and flower/leaves to a white cardstock and attached it to the card base with pop dots before embellishing with clear gems.

Want to play along with us this week? All you need to do is create a card/project using the sketch below as inspiration, and link up to the C4C223 blog post... Easy peasy! :)

Have a great one!
