Woohoo, it's Friday and the weekend is finally here. It has been quite a week and I haven't had a chance to do as much crafting as I wanted to do but the work week is over and I have two days to play.
I got myself some new Kraftin Kimmie stamps the other week and I wanted to colour one up. I chose to use Josephine and I have coloured her up in some bright and cheerful spring colours.
My card is based on the sketch from Moving Along with the Times.
After trying a few options I settled on these bright papers from Daisy D, a company that I miss dearly as I loved their products. The Kraftin Kimmie challenge was to use stripes and I have chosen to pick up the colours of Josephine's dress in the band in a striped band that goes across the card. I couldn't believe that I actually had some striped paper with all the colours that I had used but I think that it helps to tie everything together.
To add some dimension and texture to the card I have created a little floral arrangement in the bottom corner with flowers from Prima and Wild Orchid Crafts. To balance out the card, I have used a Tim Holtz ticket and some butterflies cut with a Martha Stewart punch and embellished with some bling.
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope that you all have a wonderful weekend. The weatherman has said that it is going to be sunny and warm so I hope to spend a bit of time tidying my garden which is quickly starting to come back to life now. Ahh spring!
