The Card Concept #58

cc58-you-are-enoughI am so happy to share this card with you today for The Card Concept!  First of all, I cannot even being to tell you how much I love this sentiment.  I have been looking for the perfect place to use it and this card was definitely it!  We all need to hear this message over and over (and over and over…..).  There are so many people that will try to convince us that we need to change, that we need to do just one more thing, that there is something wrong with us somehow.  Nope!  Not true.  None of that.  While there is nothing wrong with working to be the best you, at the end of the day YOU ARE ENOUGH.

Ok….with all that out of the way, I’m going to admit out loud that this inspiration photo completely freaked me out.  I first saw it and I had nothing, nada, zilch.  I pondered how bad it would be to just call uncle and bail out this week, haha!  No, I’m not kidding.  So I walked away.  For a week!  And then it was time to face the challenge and woman up!  So I looked at it a different way and saw fun colors and that stitching and I had my answer.  Whew!!!  I used this fun striped print from Pop of Pink and simply added a shaker with stitched circles.  All I had to do was mix up two of my Pretty Pink Posh sequin mixes to get the colors from the inspiration.  I took the Summer Mix and pulled out the teal and added some of the green from the Birthday Bling Mix.  Perfect!  And a Clean and Graphic card created with no wimping out!  Sometimes challenges that give me the most trouble to start help me create some of my favorite cards.  Totally true for today’s card.  I am also submitting this for the Can You Case It challenge this week:  Shaker Cards!

58cyci138-300x300I hope you will join right in with us on this one.  Use any part of the inspiration photo and pick a style for creating….then off you go!  Can’t wait to see you in the gallery.  Now this is my second post of the day.  You can see my Freshly Made Sketches post by just scrolling.  Thanks for stopping in today.  See you soon!

Fancy Friday – I Heart You

Fancy Friday – I Heart You published on 8 Comments on Fancy Friday – I Heart You

Welcome to this month’s Fancy Friday Blog Hop!  Our team is a group of demonstrators who love to make beautiful things.  Sometimes they are clean, sometimes they are layered but the one thing I can say for sure is that our projects will be fancy!  If you hopped over from my dear friend Cindy, welcome to the next stop.  For January we are creating a Valentines….but very special ones with a twist.  No traditional red or pink!FF Jan - I Heart YouMy first thought when I considered what colors to use was to somehow add in gold.  I went looking for a sketch and found this fun one from Can You Case It.  I also wanted to focus on Valentine’s Day for the CASology Adore Challenge.  I used a Tea Lace Doily against Basic Black and then layered on some Gold Metallic Thread and heart cut from Gold Foil with the Sweetheart Punch.  The sentiment stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder is from And Many More.  Finally a few gold Metallic Sequins to finish the image layer.  I cut a card base from Basic Black and put on an A2 sized piece of Gold Foil.  I think the color combination is really elegant and just as perfect for Valentine’s Day as red or pink!

Fancy-Friday-08I’ll be back on Sunday with another card that I had time to create.  But for now you need to get to hopping and check out all that the team has created!
