Happy Saturday to you! I'm thankful for a free afternoon, because I was able to create another card for the MFT Guest Designer Contest. It's such a great sketch! You can get the contest details HERE on the MFT Forum at Splitcoaststampers. This card is quite a bit different from my first entry -- I went with a distressed look and subtle colors. The papers are from the Paris & Co. 6x6 pad by My Mind's Eye. I paired them with Sno Cone and Hot Fudge cardstock.
This Die-namics Jumbo Snowflake is beautiful enough on its own, but I gave it a coat of Diamond Stickles to really make it the focal point of this card. The sentiment is from Clearly Sentimental about New Beginnings. I anchored the sentiment with a Kraft Button and some Hemp Cord. There's something I really love about the contrast of the earthy elements with the bling.
My resolution for 2013 is to recommit myself to the people and activities that make me a better and happier person. Stamping is definitely something that takes me to my "happy place" -- and I've really missed it! I had put it on hold to take care of other things, but I know now that I'm really not "me" without it. So I'm recommitted to making it a part of my life again. And, as the sentiment reads, I'm going to "Live for Today." :)
I hope you all are having a great weekend. Thanks so much for stopping by!
