Pinspired Challenge #3

Hello, my crafty friends!!

I'm here to share a card I made for the current challenge at Pinspired Challenges: Challenge #3.  I can't tell you enough how much I really like this color combination, because obviously we all know I'm such a romantic... [sigh]  Anyway, the deadline for this challenge is tomorrow at 11:59 PM, so I knew I had to work quickly w/this one.  Lucky for me, after a day filled with activities, fun and quite the scare (a lost paycheck in the street), I finally arrived home to a pleasant surprise that my Simon Says Stamp order finally arrived (Thanks, Lenny for the e-gift card!!! XOXO).  In it?  That lovely, girly, "Like Your Style" stamp set that I fell in love with when I saw my bloggie friend, Vicky make several cards with it this month.  I can't believe I now own this set!!! *smitten*   Sooooo, that means I had no choice but to start playing right away tonight with my new stamp set!!!  And I must also say, GOD is beyond good and life is pretty darn good at the moment!!! (;

Without further ado, here's the challenge photo inspiration board along with my card:




This card is pretty easy to re-create, but can be a little time-consuming with all the fussy cutting of the banners, which were part of a pattern paper page (My Mind's Eye).  I thought they composed the perfect sentiments to address a girly girl... (:  I also did quite a bit of heat embossing (both in red and white) and a little bit of paper piecing (dress).  Since lately I'm obsessed with doilies, I thought I'd throw one in there, as well as a teeny tiny clothes-pin to give this girly card a more shabby chic look.

I am also submitting this card to the Word Art Wednesday Challenge #68:  Anything Goes.

Inspired?  Or should I say, Pinspired??  Then jump in and join the fun over at Pinspired Challenges!!  Thanks for stopping by, dolls!  Have a lovely evening (or morning, depending on where you are in the world)!  Many blessings from up Above!  Xoxo

Love,
Grisel

That is just so wonderful! I love it!!! and what a great challenge. I'd love to participate in it...but my grandkids are here for a few days and so I put all of my crafting stuff out of little toddler reach! :) Will get back to crafting by Sunday, I hope! Anyway, this is just the cutest card! Well done, Grisel!
