So, with that said, here is my card for Kristina's CI #52. Its been so much fun playing along these past few months, and I have even made it into her top ten once, with this card which was probably my most exciting moment since I've been posting cards and such! Right up there with the births of my 3 boys! LOL! But really, it was an honor and humbling moment for me, considering all of you out there who create submissions that completely dazzle and blow me away! I'm just floored to be squeezing myself in amongst all this amazing creativity.
Okay, can we say sidetracked?
The details of my card are as follows: The colors are listed above, the baja background was embossed using my Swiss dots cuttlebug folder. I also used my SU "Top Note" die for both the sand as well as the Mustard DSP, which was out of a little 6 x 6 hostess pack of paper, I believe.
The bird, stamped in Baja, is this little crazy stamp that I saw out of the corner of my eye one night while at Michael's....I think it's the first time I ever bought a stamp from there. The saffron leaves, which are also Swiss Dot embossed, are from a REALLY retired hostess set from a few moons ago, and I was so excited to find coordinating buttons in my Big 'Ol Bag 'O Buttons.....I cleaned out the scrap store of their pail of assorted buttons a while back, and they have really come in handy let me tell you. The Baja satin ribbon is current SU, and those little Twinkles on the Bird, and on the 'W' of Wonderful, are from Taylored Expressions. I just realized there are a lot of circles and dots goin' on here.....but I think it works! Thanks for takin' a peek!
