Good Monday morning! Derek and I attended my “day job’s” annual company picnic on Saturday afternoon. It’s always nice to socialize with my co-workers outside of the office and getting their significant other as well as kids. The event was at Peninsula Park and it boasts an indoor pool, a cute kids water splash area with a raining flower. (I forgot to take a pic) It also has a beautiful test rose garden that is surprising large. The roses were still blooming AND there was a wedding party getting pictures taken all around the garden area. We just happen to be in the right spot to snap this pic of the wedding party in front of the beautiful fountain.
Today’s card is a clean and simple Carol original design. It happens to also be the fifth design we created in my August Card Class. It features designer series paper and ribbon from the new Holiday Catalog as well as the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.
BASE: The base is Rich Razzleberry with layers of Early Espresso and one of the floral designs from the Into The Woods Designer Series Paper.
FOCAL POINT: Begins with an Old Olive tag created by punching the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch on each end then weaving a length of the new Rich Razzleberry 3/8″ Cotton Ribbon. This tag is also popped with Stampin’ Dimensionals which offsets the thickness of the ribbon.
SENTIMENT: The sentiment is from the Friendly Wishes stamp set stamped in Early Espresso ink onto Whisper White. This was then layered into a piece of early espresso giving a nice framing effect and popped on top of the tag with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The final and sparkly touch is the three rhinestones on either side of the sentiment. I went with a large rhinestone in the center and a small on each side.
I appreciate you stopping by today and leaving your comments. Thank you so much and I hope you have a great Monday!
