Burlap and Blooms Wreath

Burlap is a very popular decorating material right now in the home decor market.  Leave it to Stampin’ Up! to come up with this wonderful Simply Created Kit.  I will be honest that while the entire wreath took me about an hour start to finish to complete, I am not thrilled with the final outcome of those circle flowers.

Watercolor Thank You

I have a fairly simple card to share with you today.  The original idea is a card that I saw at Leadership and I do not know the creator of it.  If you do, please let me know so that I can give proper credit!  I just rounded the corners and added some sequin’s to give it something a little extra.

UDI Color Challenge #166

It’s Tuesday and you know what that means…another installment of the UDI Color Challenge.  Here is our color inspiration photo.

Color Challenge #166

I wasn’t sure what to create when I saw this color combination but I knew that I wanted to use the Life in the Forest stamp set as it was screaming to be inked up!  This is my second attempt at making a card-in-box, it turned out cute, huh?

070

I love that this folds flat (somewhat) and can be placed into a medium sized envelope for mailing.

Now time to get up and personal with the cute little critters!
