Inspiration from Susie and Jen!

Hello and welcome!  Susie hosting the blog today and I am sharing a card I created using the *new* Serendipity collection. I wanted to make something special for my husband and I knew this sentiment from Quick Quotes was exactly what I wanted to say:  

"Whenever I need someone to share
my joys, or someone to hold my
hand when my world falls to pieces
you're there.  
And I know you will always be...
tomorrow and forever..."

I do not create cards very often, but when I do I like square cards - maybe they remind me of scrapbook pages?!

Anyway, I love the mix of the floral pattern and swirls on this paper and cut a 5.75" square for the background of the card. The cardstock for this was cut 12"x6" then folded in half to create the base. I fussy cut one of the flowers and some of the leaves from the same paper.

You can see I popped it up with foam adhesive then added a Blue Steel pearl to the center of each of these blooms.

The smaller flower was cut from a sheet of Calypso and I tucked in a couple more leaves.

The sentiment was die cut and embossed and I used Blue Jeans Powder Puff Chalking Ink to create a soft frame before highlighting the edges with teardrop pearls.


Here is a little video to show you how easy it is to create this look using Spellbinders dies.

Happy Friday to you! Jen here today to share a project with you. 
I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter! I have a layout to share with you which features a photo of my children from Easter of 2010! I used the Calypso paper collection to create this layout. I inked the edges of my papers with Blue Moon PowderPuff Chalking Ink, then layered several papers onto my background page.

I then add a mixture of both Diecut and Chipboard stickers which I also inked with Blue Moon PowderPuff Chalking Ink. I then added a few brads to finish off the page.

Thanks so much for stopping on over to the blog for a visit today!
