Scraptastic Creation #3

Happy Monday!  I hope today will be the start of a wonderful week for you.  The weather here in California should be pretty nice this week.  This so makes me happy........I don't look forward to the cold at all. 


The card I am sharing with you today is a card I made “just for the heck of it”. It seems like between creating for classes and challenges (not that I am complaining) I don’t have a lot of “just for the heck of it” time.


I used a couple of sets from Gina K. Designs for this one. I used Lovely Labels #1 and You are Not Alone. I stamped and embossed the label with Versamark and Clear EP and cut it out by hand…….I can’t believe it, but I don’t have this die set. No problem, after I trimmed the label image, I just sanded the edges a bit with a white sanding block (they kind you use for acrylic nails) and it worked perfectly to smooth out the edges. I stamped the floral image from You are Not Alone on PL Ivory cardstock with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and then went over each of the blossoms with a Chocolate Spica Glitter pen. It might be hard to see in the photo, but the shimmer is so pretty!  Everything except for the card base is scraps, so I give this a Scrap Factor of 9. 

Whatever you do today, make it a happy one!
