Mojo Monday 239 Challenge because I already had this shape on hand from when I was designing baby cards for a recent workshop. I had intended to make a bib out of it - but didn't get it finished in time. I was a bit stuck with what to do with it though because everytime I looked at it, all I saw was baby (and quite frankly... unless I have a whole lot of friends who have babies in the very near future, I'm set for a long time on baby cards - LOL). I saw that the Divas by Design challenge 33 was Monochromatic so I decided to work with the blue theme and see what I could come up with. I am generally more inspired when I have a subject or occassion in mind, but after a tough week my brain was still not in the creative mode and I couldn't seem to come up with a person in mind who loves blue. So... I decided to think of a theme that I have very little cards on hand for and noticed that I didn't have a single "get well" card and there have been a few times this past year it would have been handy to have one. If you are still with me after all that rambling - thanks so much! I sure do appreciate that you stopped by to visit my blog. Happy Sunday!
Supplies (all from Stampin Up!): Cardstock - Bashful Blue and Marina Mist. Bashful blue DSP from the Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack. Bashful blue tafetta ribbon. Sentiment from Delightful Dozen stamped with Marina Mist Ink. I put a few little flowers from the Bordering on Romance Set at the top and bottom of the sentiment (using Versamark) - it turned out a little too subtle for me so I decided I needed to add a little bling with the basic rhinestones (colored with a sharpie marker). I also used the decorative label punch. The cardbase is made using the Sizzix Scallop Circle die. I used the perfect polka dots textured embossing folder on the first layer (this is one of my favorite texture folders).
Finished card size is 4 1/2" round and fits in the medium square envelopes.
