With her Freestyle Fridays post last week, Julie issued a mission for me to create something pink this week and to add plenty of layers if I so desired. Oops! I don't have a lot of layers, but pink doesn't get much pinker than Stampin' Up!'s Melon Mambo, which is the color of my card and the dotted ribbon. I had originally thought that I would create a holiday card and use some splashes of pink, but then . . . my birthday present arrived early (a Silhouette Cameo) . . . and I was anxious to play and to see if I could design a round-top card with a layer featuring a sentiment cut-out. I won't tell you how long it took for me to finally get my sentiment to weld properly but, when I finally got it right, I was determined to complete the card, even if it meant creating a Spring-looking flower from Stampin' Up!'s "Birds of a Feather" designer paper! I used a retired Stampin' Up! flower brad, topped off with a sparkly rhinestone jewel, for the center of my flower. Mission complete, Julie!
I promised that I would announce the winner today of the FREE one-month subscription to Craft Project Central. It's hard to believe that I've had over 800 blog hits since Monday, but only ONE person chose to leave a comment and be entered in the drawing for the free subscription. Thank you, Ariel, for taking a second to leave a comment. The one-month subscription is all yours, and I will contact you for the info needed to get your subscription started!
