I'm Back

Welcome Back! 

It's been a while for me, skipped the first challenge of the year, was sick! Then Leadership happened - so much fun! New stuff! :) But I am back with a simple design for you today!

 I designed the challenge colors because I just love how these colors go together... they are fabulous and even though they are cool colors they warm me up, when I see them together! 



Here's my take on the challenge!



I went super clean on this one... for two reasons - one simple is fabulous and clean! I love it!
I used florals because I hardly ever do... not against florals, but they have been awesome! As in this case,  The Summer Romance prints from Fun Stampers Journey is perfect!  Along with the print, I selected Pretty Pansy and Brush Silver as layers and Whip Cream for my base card.  I used the Tags sr die with the hello, which is from Fabulous Bird. I masked off parts of the sentiment, inked it in Pretty Pansy and topped it off with a wooden heart button and some of my dyed twine.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you will join us for this awesome challenge!

Don't forget at CYCI you can use any products!

Until next time,
Eva

The Savvy 7 Blog Hop



This is our first hop, and I hope all of you will take time, to visit each of the hoppers. 


Out theme this month is Snow Flakes! I love snowflakes, but not the mess you get with snow so this will be lots more fun that shoveling I promise!

 Anywho... on to my card!

I got started by selecting my cardstock for the project.  I went with Pretty Pansy, Cool Pool, River Stone, and Whip Cream for my cardbase.  Next, I wanted to add some texture, so going with an embossing folder was the perfect fit! Happy Holidays had snowflakes and trees, which remind me of the terrain in Oregon during the winter.   I added a bit of Whip Cream ink to soften the look. Then, I die cut a snowflake from the steel rule die Holiday Elements again in WC.  I dyed some of our Whip Cream twine, with some of the silks, in Cosmic Grape, Silver, and Turbo Teal to get that awesome deep purple color.  For my sentiment I went with Text Happy, the sayings are super cute and doing it in Whip Cream on the River Stone looked amazing!  For the finishing touches, the cut rhinestones were a perfect touch. I hope you've enjoyed my stop on the hop...
