So my baby girl, Faith, joined the Speech Team at her high school after volleyball season was over - and was in two tournaments and did well - it is a learning experience I think! Anyway, her third tournament was the District Meet - and she tied for second place in her event - which qualified her for the State Speech Tournament which is this weekend! Needless to say, we were all thrilled for her - pretty exciting!
Anyway, I made a card for her and hid it in her backpack - so hopefully she will find it when she arrives at the tournament! I took a quick photo :
The stamp set I used was Painted Petals - it is so pretty and easy to align the flowers and the stems. I chose a soft color palette for her card - Calypso Coral, Old Olive and Whisper White. I LOVE the word stamp in this set - You are Amazingly Amazing! - and seemed to be perfect for Faith's card!
Card Base is Whisper White 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 - scored at 4 1/4.
Next layer is also Whisper White - 4 x 5 1/4.
I stamped the flower and stem onto a piece of Whisper White card stock and then used the largest of the circles in the Circle Framelit Collection - it has a scalloped edge and loved the look it created against the doily (sponged lightly with Calypso Coral ink). To finish the card, I added a few rhinestones for some sparkle.
Well Faith - you probably won't see this blog post but we are all sending good thoughts your way - and wish you THE BEST this weekend!
Supplies for this card include:
