God Bless You

Hello my friends and welcome to the 1st CSS Blog Hop of 2011!! I hope you enjoy your visit here as well as my creation. If you are coming from the talented Deb you are in the right place.
Our first Blog Hop is a color challenge based on Gina's Color Spotlight for this week.


God Bless You: For my card I used Melanie's new set "Where your heart is".

Directions:
  • Make card base from Sweet Corn Cardstock. A2 size.
  • Mat a piece of Fresh Asparagus (3.75" x 5") with Patterned Paper (ink all edges). Add zig zag stitches.
  • Tie ribbon, make a bow and add a paper flower.
  • Stamp sentiment on Patterned Paper in Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
  • Stamp image on White Cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black. Color it with Copic Markers. Die-cut and emboss image with Rectangle Nestabilities.
  • Using the same die, trace it on Red Hot Cardstock and cut it out. 
  • Add die-cut image to Red Hot piece with foam tape.
  • Add it to cad with foam tape.
  • Apply Crystal Lacquer on hands and set to dry.

Card Recipe:
I used the sketch from CPS!

Now, hop over to Jen's blog and enjoy her wonderful creation.
Have fun hopping.
