Sweet Moments...

Hi there!

Are you having a wonderful weekend?  I certainly hope so!  I had had some crafting time yesterday after we enjoyed some time at the county fair.  It was perfect weather for everyone to enjoy the rides and fun fair food.  My favorite treats are the waffles and caramel apples with nuts...mmm! 

Today I'd like to share with you a card I made for City Crafter Challenge.  We were to make a project with the theme 123.  It involves using a 1) stamp...2)different papers...3)embellishments.    Here is the gorgeous inspiration photo...

Edit:  Silly me!  I apparently misread the directions...grrr!  I was to use only one stamp, only two different papers, and only three different embellishments!  Oh well, better luck next time!:-)

For my card I started with a cream card base and layered with pink, black and Echo Park paper.  A cloth heart doily was placed.  And, a paper doily, which I distressed was layered.  I stamped a lovely frame onto the oval die cut.  I then fussy cut a pretty rose and popped it up for dimension.  Pearls were added to the rose and frame.  Ribbon, twine, and button to finish the card.  Ok, I may have one more card to post yet today, so please stay tuned.  And, I thank you so much for dropping by!  Take care, hugs!
