Pretty in Lavender

Hi Everybody,

Hope you all had a great week, and are ready for the weekend.  It's been a little crazy for me, as I've been taking mom to the dentist, my little dog (Opie) to the vet, or picking up supplies for one thing or the other.  Plus I've been working hard at learning to groom, so I too am glad to see the weekend here.

This card was inpired by a card by Wendy of lollydollycrafts.  You can see the card she created further down on the page on the link to her blog.  Wendy also has tutorials, and trust me when I tell you, just browsing her blog is worth the trip!

I stressed a bit over this card for a couple of reasons.  One, I so wanted to cut the paper similar to Wendy's card, but I don't have a cutting machine.  Two, the paper (not sure of the manufacturer) was part of a gift package, and I only had one copy and didn't want to mess it up. . . gulp!  I practiced a bit on some plain paper and simplified the cut a little, but I still was almost in a panic before I even got started.  Nevertheless, I managed to get through it....whew! 

The stamp, by Saturated Canary, is called "Haley Harley", and was colored with Promarkers.  I made the leaves out of some ribbon, and made the stick pin just using a simple pearl.  The bows were made from ribbon and lace, and the beads and flowers are from my stash.  The rhinestones I got from good ole Walmart.

Now, I think my photographing is getting better (thanks to my dear sweet husband buying me a better camera), but the odd thing about this image is the pinkish flowers are not pink, they are a lavender/purple color.  I have no idea why I could not get the picture right, and may end up with a new photo upload, if I can get it figured out soon.

With all that said, thank you for taking time out of your day and stopping by.

Beautiful card and coloring. I love the SC images. Have you tried putting white card stock behind and under your card before taking a photo. It works pretty good most times for me.
