Hi everyone! It's nice to be back to posting an MMSC card. I really missed not posting one last week. I can't believe that we are on the MMSC16 already and that it is almost Fall, and school is starting this week!! I want to say a special thank you to our sponsor this month...Simon Says Stamp They have been very generous to us , and we hope that you will stop by their store and see all of the wonderful items that they have to offer.
This was a nice card for me to do to get that last bit of summer into my cards. I just love working with the feminine cards, so of course, I used lots of pink, frills, and sparkle for this card. It was just perfect for me. I want to thank Michelle Perkett from Enchanted Inspirations so much for providing these images for us to use this week. I completely enjoyed them. If you haven't seen Michelle's artwork yet, you have to take a few moments and pop over there to check out all of her beauties!! She is very talented! I chose to cut and pop her image due to the sketch this week and my inexperience with sizing digi's properly. I needed to be sure that this sweet image fit onto my card, so I had to trim away the background, but I would love to do this image again sometime with the full background as well. This card is just full of glitter and glitz.....that's the way I like them! I couldn't resist making the inside just as sweet and sparkly as the outside, so I went to work creating the magical inside to this card which includes a very feminine and frilly pocket graced with jeweled butterflies and a pretty flower.....AND just to go the little extra mile, I created a little journal tag/photo card that fits perfectly inside the pocket. I also made a matching, decorated and lined thick box envelope to match and complete this set, but I forgot to load the picture on here, and don't know how to place extra pictures inside of the post once it is already written. Sorry about that!
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed looking at my card and hope that you find a bit of inspiration to entice you to want to create your own entry for this week's MMSC challenge. Check out Priscilla's blog for any other MMSC news and details.
