Finally, time to make a card

Hey Bleeps (blog peeps)!

I’m sorry that I’ve been MIA lately. This quarantine pandemic had me cleaning, organizing, baking, gardening and spending time with family to pass the time.  I hope you all have been doing well. We’ve all been good here, no sickness in my house…..but my sister and her family as well as my dad were sick. Everyone is doing better now, thank the Lord.

These are some strange Twilight Zone times we are living in, huh? Crazy I tell ya’…..but without my faith in Jesus, I think I would have been living in fear. But I don’t doubt God for one minute and my faith is in Him, not man.

Anyhoo, I made this card for the color challenge over at SplitCoast Stampers.

Here’s the color combo they gave us to use.

Here’s what I came up with:

I loved these colors together. I used the To a Wild Rose stamp set and I did use some retired ribbon. I cut the ribbon down the middle to get it to be more narrow and it frayed, it was a nice surprise! So I used both pieces to make a double bow.

Here’s a close up:

The sentiment is from Best Dressed stamp set. I just fussy cut it out and added a little hole, then tied it on the bow with twine.

Here’s another view:

I stamped on the Flirty Flamingo cardstock to add interest to the background. I decided not to stamp the outline rose from this stamp set on the main diecut images. I think I might like it better without, it gives it a softer artsy look. Makes it more realistic looking to me.

Well, that’s it for now. Thank you for stopping by. Stay safe and well during this crazy time and pray for the world. Have a blessed day ❤
