Now that's more my style!

Hello!

Just one more really quick post for today.  Made another card for the Summer Camp Class and used sketch #2 along with the colours for this week.  I'm so happy with the way it turned out.  This time I didn't "force" a style, I just let it happen!  It's so much more "me"!!!

Here's the card:




I used a lot of Paper Smooches on this card.  The hexigons, the "you" and the "are going places" are all PS.  The arrows and "dream big" are from Studio Calico / Hero Arts.  I coloured the hexigons with my Copics and had to do a little creative work to create the PS sentiment.  I was kicking myself again today not having a die cut machine, because the gorgeous "you" die cut from SSS would have been perfect for this.  But I got resourceful and found a PS you, embossed it with white embossing power and then cut it out with a craft knife. 

I made this for a good friend of mine who has an interview next week for her dream job.  I am SO excited for her!  Hopefully the card will be her little good luck charm (not that she needs it!).

Hope to see you again tomorrow!

  5. What a beautiful 'charm' card for your friend interviewing for her dream job! Thoughtful, warm, and absolutely gorgeous!! Fantastic combination of products for the sentiment, and those arrows: brilliant! Love the hexagons! I have a couple of hexagon stamps that sit neglected, so I'm drawing mega-inspiration from you to use them!
    With all your amazing assignments, I think you deserve a treat...die-cutting machine! Grab a coupon and go, go, go!!!
