you've got this (Curtain Call, KIS)

Happy first anniversary to Curtain Call! Do you play over there? They always have the most beautiful inspiration photos and great design work from the team. And this time the theme is Anything Goes AND  there are lots of prizes to celebrate. I'm in :)


How can you not love all that white space? (How can you not love all that storage space? I'll keep dreamin') I picked up on the touches of pink and made a card of encouragement.


Stamped trees onto panel of CS using Distress Inks spritzed with water.  Stamped sentiments. Die cut ampersand from cereal box and used it to dry emboss the panel. Highlighted ampersand with Wink of Stella for a bit of glimmer. Punched a hole and threaded the ribbon. Made a pocket of vellum by stitching it to the card. Even added a bit of PP to the inside a la Kelly G.

I'm also joining the fun at Keep it Simple #44 where it's about bows!


We've got wonderful (read: hot) summer weather at the moment. Out to enjoy it. Happy weekend all.


Supplies for you've got this:
Paper:  CS Bringmann, vellum, PP Pink Petticoat
Stamps: CASual Fridays
Ink : Distress, Versafine
Tools: corner rounder, sewing machine, die Kelly Purkey
Other: ribbon

  13. Great card, Maria! Love the colors and your trees are awesome... and, of course, I absolutely love the ampersand. Cereal boxes are misunderstood... if they knew how valuable they are *sigh*...
