I'm Ashamed! :)

I am ashamed to admit that I haven't shown this card to you yet! I made it almost two weeks ago for the VSN challenge to create a clear card and the Viva la Verve sketch challenge with a twist of acetate! Anyway, I honestly don't know why I have waited so long to show you it because it is one of my very favorite cards I think part of my problem is that I have already sent it to someone and it wasn't sitting on my desk waiting to be posted. Often times I forget about a card when they aren't in front of me!

Well this card is one that I spent a lot of time on. I wanted it to turn out beautifully so I worked extra hard on it. The card base that I used is actually just a transparency that you can pick up at any office supply store. I cut it down to size and then folded it in half, making sure it was creased well. I then attached my layered pieces of card stock to the front and inside. The dp I used is actually from my BasicGrey Bittersweet collection and the card stock is Pink Pirouette, Whisper White, and some chocolate card stock from Bazill. I used two of my very favorite Verve sets called Meditations (the flowers) and Serenity (the sentiment) on this card. I embossed the flowers and cut them out before popping them up on dimensionals. Behind that I tied a piece of chocolate ribbon that I picked up at Wal-Mart for really cheap! I also added the sentiment after stamping it and punching it out with my word window punch. My final step was to glue on the 6 dew pink dew drops. I think they create such a cute look!

I hope that you are all having a WONDERFUL night! Today is Thursday which means I will have tomorrow free. I am so looking forward to my usual Friday routine of cleaning the house, doing the laundry, and stamping! Also, tomorrow if Cupcake Friday and you won't want to miss it! There are some fun and exciting things happening over at the Taylored Expressions store! :)
