365 Cards Day 51


Wahhhoooooo!! Day 9 out of 9 baby!! I know it's definitely cutting into my sleep time but it feels so darn good to keep going with the challenges at 365 Cards. Today's challenge is a "Picture It" challenge where you make a card that is inspired by this picture. When I saw the picture I immediately thought of the Fifth Avenue Florals stamp set from SU. Let me know what you think. Too tacky of a card??? I have no idea why but I actually cut slits in the Riding Hood Red and slid the Whisper White in. You totally can't tell and it was extra work so I'm not really sure why I did it. Then I felt the need to add something to the red strip but I already glued it down so the only thing I could think of was sparkly bling or 1/2 pearls. I figured the sparkly bling might make it more tacky than it already is! And those flowers were actually watercolored this time rather than blender pen'ed and let me tell you. Cutting those babies out on 140lb paper is TOUGH. Anyways time for bed!!
