Just For You

Happy Monday!! I hope you had a wonderful weekend!! The weather was perfect here...sunny, high 70's. I was able to keep the windows open all weekend :) It's time for another fun challenge at Craftin Desert Divas!! It's a fun one this week - we want you to use your Favorite Color on your project!! Easy peasy, right/?!! Our sponsors are: CDD - one stamp set; My Scrap Chick: $10 Discount Coupon; Scrappin Doodles: $10 G.C.; Creative Embellishments: $20 Gift Voucher to store.

For my card, I used my favorite color - pink :) I also used papers from my favorite paper company - Prima. These are from the Lyric stack. And I used my favorite crafting tool - a Zutter DIA to distress the edges.

The branch is a Spellbinders Cherry Blossom die. The centers were inked with Tim Holtz Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. The bird is a Die-Versions Crow die and it was cut twice, once in black for a shadow effect. It was covered with Doodlebug Designs Sugar Coating, as was the Memory Box Darla Butterfly. The flowers are a mixture of Prima and The Paper Studio. Tulle was tucked among the blooms, as was twisted copper wire. Spellbinders D-Lites Corner Sprigs were cut in vellum and added as well. The gorgeous crinkle ribbon is from my sweet friend Karen of Little Scrap Pieces. The button is a Die-Versions Wee Petites Button die.

The banner is from Lil' Inker. Just for You is from Craftin Desert Divas Simply Said Stamp Set:

You can purchase this set, as well as all of the CDD stamps in the store HERE.
