Smile!

Usually, when I start a card, I finish it in one go. This card I present today... it took me about ten days to finish!

The first interruption was some GREAT news I received. I mean, really great. A couple who is really close to me and that I love very, very much and deeply is waiting their first baby!!! I was so thrilled, I couldn't do any crafting for a few days, seriously! lol!

...And then I had a business trip. It took me three days to find my mojo after the trip and finish the card. As a result (I think!), the card turned out differently from what I had in mind. But here it goes:




The card will be submitted to the following challenges:

Lily Pad Cards - Digital Die Cut Challenge: Hero Arts Presents… A Digital Challenge with Shari Carroll



The card was inspired by Vicky's die cut file "film set" you can see above, which is available for free download here, at Lily Pad Cards. Thank you Vicky for yet another amazing set! 



So, back to the card....

I chose to use the photo frame and the camera, and used some vellum paper as the flash light. From the day I saw the "film set", I knew I wanted to use the toothy-smiling flower stamp from Paper Smooches Stamps... isn't it adorable? When the idea came to me, I had already place my order to Paper Smooches, so as soon as I received the stamps, I started the card - you know the rest of the story ;o)

For the stitched frame I used the Sew Easy tool from We R Memory Keepers. In more details, the supplies are:

White cardstock, vellum paper, white embroidery floss from my stash, plus:
Pin It
