hello friend, Friday Focus

Today, the Flourishes design team is focusing on the Finishing Touches card embellishments, for a lovely tutorial head on over to the Flourishes Newsletter. On my card, I used the silver mini-messages set, they come in a cute metal tin that you can repurpose, I like little things like that. To start, I measured my square mini message frame, cut out some paper, rounded the corners and then stamped the dragonfly and sentiment. To get the paper to stay inside the frame I glued it down with Zip-Dry (I seriously love that stuff). I cut an embossed the ivory card stock using a labels 6 Nestability die from Spellbinders. The tulip was stamped in Memento rich cocoa ink and colored in with Copic markers. All of the sentiments are from the Strawberries set. For embellishments I added some green satin ribbon, natural colored twine, and buttons, the designer paper is Earth Love from Cosmo Cricket.
Tomorrow is World Card making day!! Woohoo!!! Make sure to come back, in the morning I will have lots of links, prizes, & stuff for you to check out. To get ready head on over to SCS, Moxie Fab World or The Paper Crafts Connection for more info. Also myself along with the other 2sketches4you designers are having one amazing blog hop you will not want to miss!
