Since I don't have any Kiwi Kiss ink, I pulled out my Old Olive inkpad and wide grosgrain ribbon, as well as some Chocolate Chip. I thought this quote from Beautiful You would be perfect.
I started with the background strip from Artful Elegance, and stamped it in Baja Breeze on my background panel. Then I sponged the edges to soften them a bit. I stamped the quote from the Frost poem, and then cut it out with my Oval Nestabilities. Before removing the cardstock from the die, I sponged it with Old Olive, starting at the outside and working in. Then I added a few more layers.
To bring in some more of the Olive, I cut strips of Chocolate Chip, embossed them with my Swiss Dots embossing folder, and wrapped my Wide Olive grosgrain ribbon around them. Love that stuff! The other corners were looking a bit nekked, so I added a couple of corner hardware pieces from We R Memory Keepers. This particular hardware piece has a spot for an embellishment in the flower center, so I colored 2 Swarovski Crystals with my Olive Copic marker and glued them into the hardware. So fun!
Well, I hope you enjoyed my card today. Don't forget, you still have 6 days to play in the Verve Project Parade Challenge...make sure you check out all the fabulous creations from the Divas HERE. Have a fabulous day!
