Anything Goes... Challenge #60

Well after an insane week I managed to scrape in a few cards this weekend! Nothing like celebrations to help "find the time" to craft ;)

This card is one I made for my eldest daughter's little friend. I personally find cards for strangers difficult, as I'm not sure how some people will receive a handmade card, so I kept this one fairly simply. To help me, I used the challenge over at Anything Goes which was a bingo card of crafty options. It was a really late hour that I started this card, the night before the party, so I picked a horizontal line, consisting of: 2 or more stamps (see ingredients list), Your Choice (2 or more cardstocks), Die cuts/Punches (see ingredients list).

Here is my card! (Quick segue, I FINALLY figured the key to taking good photos of my projects! The perfect place to take them is of all place, MY PRINTER which happens to sit right next to the window in my craft room. So during daylight, I can play with the blinds to get the perfect angle of light) :)

So ingredients list:

Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Blushing Bride and Whisper White
Stamps: Stampin' Up! Delicate Doilies and Create A Cupcake
Ink: Stampin' Up! Regal Rose and Melon Mambo
Punch: Stampin' Up! Scalloped Oval punch

All because two people fell in love...

For something different today, I have a scrapbook layout! Before I head back to study on Monday I am furiously crafting; trying to cram in as many projects as possible! :) Last night I managed a scrapbook page (not this one), plus two cards! Have to be happy with that effort!

Anyhoo, this page is for Anything Goes Challenge blog, the current theme is "To The One I Love", and also the Sassy Scrapper February Sketch Challenge. I have been so slack scrapbooking my wedding photos. I've had this particular photo in my study for MONTHS and I just kept moving it around to a different spot each time. So I finally bit the bullet and scrapped it.

I have no idea what most of the materials used are, as I am also trying to cull my stash before I go shopping again ;) but the flowers are prima, DI is Brushed Corduroy, papers are Bo Bunny, Kaisercraft, Graphic 45 and I think Basic Grey? Cardstock is Stampin' Up! Chocolate Chip, and I've used liquid pearls for the flourishes.

Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of your weekend :)
