Well, that was a nice low key day to start off the New Year! I got up a little late but that’s because I didn’t go to bed until 2:00. I finished setting up the wall unit and then sat and enjoyed some TV. I looked over at the Christmas tree and thought, time for you to come down and that’s just what I did. It’s all packed away and ready for next Christmas. I puttered around the house until 1:30 when I decided it was time to get a move on. I took a ride to IKEA with Taylor to get 2 shelves and some different knobs for the wall unit. It was packed! I put the shelves up as soon as I got home and changed the knobs. Around 5:15 I went over and had dinner with the ‘rents and then came back home and made my card for today. Andrew stopped by a little later, he’s off to Florida early tomorrow morning to see a friend. He’ll be back on Tuesday night and I’ll be picking him up! I squeezed in a movie after he left, Live, Die, Repeat – Edge of Tomorrow. I have to say that I didn’t think that I was going to like it but it was quite good! Today I’m off to the scrapbook store for a bit and then who knows! It’s good to be off from work! LOL! 🙂
The card that I made last night is for this week’s Pals Paper Arts color challenge…
I do love the purples and blues together the silver is the icing on the cake! My card starts off with a base of Whisper White Card Stock, I adhered a piece of Wisteria Wonder to cover the front for the background. The piece of Watercolor Paper is inked with Wisteria Wonder and Night of Navy using the Tim Holts Mini Ink Blending Tool. At first I thought that I wanted to get rid of the line but the more I looked at it the more I liked it so it stayed. Before I adhered the Watercolor Paper to the background I adhered a piece of 7/8″ Cotton Ribbon with some Glue Dots around the back and then used a combination of SNAIL and Fast Fuse to make sure that it stayed in place. The butterfly is cut out from Brushed Silver Metallic Card Stock with the Butterflies Thinlits*. I tied a piece of Silver Baker’s Twine around one of the Mini Metallic Clothespins and used it to hold the butterfly to the ribbon. The greeting is from the And Many More Stamp Set and is heat embossed with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Night of Navy. I used the Bitty Banners Framelits to cut it out and slid it under the clothespin. I love the inked background and the cool way that the butterfly is attached to the card! I really hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts color challenge! Thanks very much for visiting me today! I hope that you all have a fantastic fun filled Friday! 🙂
