Big News!

Hello there!  Happy MONDAY!  Did you have a FABULOUS weekend?  I hope you found time to create! We had a SMOKE FREE weekend!  The winds blew the smoke from our fires in another direction, so we were able to go outside and enjoy the blue skies!  I was also blessed to be able to watch my son, Adam play a double header baseball game at Big League Dreams in Redding, California! Next weekend we go to Medford, Oregon...should be FUN!

I'm part of a Facebook Hop tonight at 5pm...and this is the card I will be sharing!

I really wanted this card to have a simple elegance to it so I chose Whisper White on Whisper White.  I also used Smoky Slate as my first layer and Pear Pizzazz for the leaves. I embossed my second two layers with the Elegant Dots embossing folder. I used my Oval framelits to create a frame in my top layer, with my sentiment showing through.  The doves were made with the Bird Builder punch.  This is a punch that I never thought I would use, but I use it OFTEN!  I love the look of the Basic Pearls that I attached in the embossed circles.  I used the Big News stamp set for the outside and the inside of my card, stamping with Smokey Slate ink.


You know I love to decorate the inside of my cards.  For this one I have two layers, the bottom layer in Smoky Slate and the top layer in Whisper White.  I stamped the rest of the sentiment and added a flower using the Itty Bitty punch set and leaves using the Bird Builder punch.  Don't forget that Basic Pearl as the flower center!

I hope you'll click on the Facebook Icon up in the left corner and follow along! It's so much fun and there are some VERY creative gals participating...TWELVE of them in fact!  

THANKS BUNCHES for stopping by today!  I hope you are INSPIRED to CREATE and get to make something today!  HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY!!
