You know how every once in a while you make a card that you just absolutely love? Well that's how I'm feeling about today's card :) My mojo has been difficult to say the least so when this card came together so easily, I was elated! I have my friend Joanne to thank for that. She was this week's Featured Stamper on SCS and I have been determined to play along. She has such an amazing gallery that it took me quite some time to finally decide which one to case. I chose this card because I absolutely love the look of her spotlighting and I knew the set Bloom would work perfectly. This card was also made for today's color challenge which was to use Kraft, Chocolate Chip and Real Red.
Card Recipe: The card base measures 3x4 in. After I cut the very vanilla panel, I cut a strip of Kraft 1 in. wide and laid it diagonally across the vanilla layer and stamped the image. I then colored the image with prismacolor pencils, added a Chocolate Chip mat, adhered to the vanilla layer, trimmed excess and stitched with sewing machine. I cut a piece of ribbon, folded, trimmed and adhered it to the back of the main panel then added a red rhinestone on the front. The main panel was adhered to the card base using dimensionals.
