JUGS #38 - Color Challenge


Can you tell that I have spent my whole Saturday morning in my craft room? :) How fun!
Well, I wanted to use a few new stamps from two different Paris stamp sets that I have purchased these past few months. And, I have enjoyed participating in JUGS (Just Us GirlS) challenges in the past, so I figure to help me get my mojo back, I'll combine the two! Here is a link to the JUGS - 38 - Color Challenge .
The colors for the JUGS color challenge is: light pink, chocolate, and vanilla. Aren't these colors just yummy? So, here is my card. I have quite a bit of stuff going on here, so please bear with me. I added crochet trim instead of my favorite - ribbon. I felt the yarn gave the card a softer look. Ok, for the stamping, lots here. I stamped the Eiffel tower on a scrap piece of basic grey pattern paper. I stamped the crown partially off the same paper. For the card base (another scrap piece of basic grey pattern paper), I did stamp a 'postage stamp' and 'post mark' in a bright pink ink, at the upper right corner and lower right corner. I stamped some french script between the two in a brown ink. I layered two paper flowers together, found a pretty pink button to add to the top. I took a nice length of twine and ran in through the button holes and made a bow. I wanted to add some half pearls to my card, so I added some to a hat pin, and made my own flourishes on two opposite corners. I added some clear rhinestones randomly at each those corners. I sprayed the whole finished card with three different colors of smooch sprays (log cabin, vanilla, and pink)
Thanks for looking! Show some love and post a comment!
