The more relaxed you are, the better you are at everything: the better you are with your loved ones, the better you are with your enemies, the better you are at your job, the better you are with yourself. ~ Bill Murray
I started with a piece of White Cardstock with Color Burst using a wonky circle stencil.
I pulled out my Trendy Triangle Stamp set from My Favorite Things and started stamping. I probably should have had a plan and used a ruler, but since my circles were wonky, I decided to stick with wonky triangles too.
I started with the large green triangles and then added three different smaller triangles in blue. I finished with a MFT Many Thanks Die Cut.
The Kraft Journal is looking for CAS Thank You Cards, which is right up my alley. I love kraft cardstock ... and I love clean & simple.
I also love a sketch that uses up scraps of paper on my studio table that would otherwise be going in the recycle ... so the sketch at Atlantic Hearts Sketches was perfect. The sentiment is an SRM Sticker.
As I searched for flowers to use on my card, I was thinking about how at one time I would have had hundreds of flowers in every shape and color ... and now it seems flowers are sort of *out* on the embellishment spectrum, so it was a challenge to find any in my stash that worked. I also pulled out some brads, which are also a rather neglected embellishment. Feels good to use some of those forgotten supplies.
I had my annual eye exam this afternoon ... which included having my eyes dilated. Unfortunately, it takes hours for my pupils to return to normal, so since I am creating cards while I am visually impaired and wearing sunglasses (nothing keeps a determined crafter down) ... I decided to keep it simple tonight.
I'm guest co-hosting at SplitCoast Stampers this weekend for the 500th (yes you read that right) Inspiration Challenge ... and to celebrate, we're giving 5 (yes FIVE) lucky participants a One Year Fan Club Membership ... so come join the fun.
Our Inspiration Website is Green Wedding Shoes ... and I took my inspiration from the Wild + Whimsical Wedding of CiCi & Albert... could there be any cuter wedding party. I just loved the combination of the crown with the antlers, so that is where I started my design.
I thought it was only appropriate that I used stamps and die cuts designed by Julie Ebersole, since she was one of the very first artists that inspired me when I joined Splitcoast Stampers many years ago.
