Friends Card

Well, this is the last of my four cards that I submitted for the Paper Crafts Gallery Idol.


The gorgeous papers, tag, and transparency swirl are all My Mind's Eye. The paper is double-sided, so after I created the card, I used my threading water punch on the front, so that the inside of the card showed through. I love the brown and green color combination. The tag is so pretty on it's own, so I just added a little bit of lace, a Prima, and a light green Making Memories rhinestone brad. The large flower stacks is also Primas, and I added the transparency swirl to the stack, and I added a larger light green Making Memories rhinestone brad.


Here's a close up of the large flower stack. I love that transparency swirl!


Here's a close up of the top of the tag. I love the addition of the lace.

Not too much going on here today. It's going to be hot and humid, and we will probably have thunderstorms later. The girls need to finish designing t-shirts that they're making for a library design contest, I am working on a design team entry for one of my favorite sites, and my husband wants to watch some Nascar racing! After I get my design team entry finished and emailed, I want to hang some stuff in the girls' rooms and photograph them to show all of you! I also want to blog hop! I'm so behind, but I hope to catch up with all of you to see what you've been up to!! Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!!
