Words

I just returned from Williamsburg and I am seriously having problems getting my thoughts together.  So please excuse me if I seem a tad incoherent.  It's nothing that a good night's rest can't cure.  :-)  Or maybe I just need to go back and stay a full week?  Nope, don't want to drive again. 

My card for this week's Sentimental Sunday's is..well... it's a scallop.  I did warn you!  I printed the sentiment (On Thoughts)directly to the die cut and then built around it.  I added a few strips of paper to start with and then just started layering!  I love being able to utilize those teeny pieces of paper and ribbon.  The large swirl at the top was a ripped piece for the large KI lace die cut paper.  I couldn't bare to throw it out because I knew it would be useful on a card or project.  Thankfully the color worked perfectly for this card.  I layered some Recollections flowers with a button center and colored the small flower on the sentiment in with my Copics and a little Stickles for sparkle.  A tiny pearl finishes the center.  The gummed tabs at the top have been hanging on in my draw begging to be utilized. I think these are a new fave of mine! I applied a small floral rub-on and more tiny pearls as a accent.  I then stitched them on because my tiny attacher was not thrilled to be cutting through the fabric and then layers of paper.

Pretty circle card, but the Fuzzy Wuzzy Challenge requires an animal as the focal point of your card/project plus the monthly theme.
Still time to enter a card, challenge runs through 8/31
