Inspiration Strikes


So I had these scraps, that little heart flower image was just calling me.  All the other pieces were laying there on the table except the pink and the cardstock itself.  Just started putting them on the blue sqaure and voi`la I had a card. the rest of it just fell together.  I just received that new washi tape in the mail from Pick Your Plum.  I do like the effect of paper piercing too and often forget how it finishes a card.  I pierced a bit between the corner punch and the ribbon.  I folded the little flag piece for a bit of dimension.  After thought : I would have sponged the edges of the blue square but since it was already all together I just added the dots.  Wish I had the scraps to make another.  Oh well, on to other creations.  Open-mouthed smile  Making cards makes me happy.  This one is for Jack and Eloise Ellerbrocks 64th wedding anniversary, yesterday! March 12, 1949.

As I look at other card makers I am getting more confidence about mixing patterns.  The washi tape picks up the colors in the corner punch and so it works.
