Hello friends. I begin this post with a heavy heart. My cousin, Ben, whom I wrote about in the last post, went to be with the Lord yesterday. His young body suffered too much damage to survive. Thank you for the thoughts and prayers. Please, continue to keep his mom, sister and father in your prayers. Thanks.
I have a card for you that I made for the Digital Stamps 4 Joy challenge this week. Challenge #71 is Button it Up Shapely. Translation: make a shaped card and add buttons. I am also entering this card into some other challenges and they are listed at the bottom of this post.
I began by folding a 6x12 piece of Colorbok Pink card stock in half to form a base. I printed out this shape on the computer and hand cut two black shapes from Recollections card stock. I made an easel card from the base and adhered one of the black pieces to the front, the other to the inside bottom. I then cut around the shapes so that the only pink you see is at the very top when the card is closed. I so want a Grand Calibur or a Big Shot so that I can die cut shaped cards without all the fussy cutting. It would be so much easier.
I used an image from DS4J designed by Jen Lee..love love love her images. This one is called Misteri's Prom. I colored her with colored pencils and OMS. I am so thrilled..I bought my first three Prismacolor Pencils the other day at AC Moore. I bought two shades of skin tones and a pink for the cheeks. I love them. I am definitely going to have to invest in a whole set. I chose a sentiment from Desert Diva and added that to the inside of the card. The remaining pink card stocks are from Recollections and the DP is all DCWV. All of those buttons are from my stash.
I hope y'all enjoyed your visit today. I hope y'all have a great day. God bless.
