Smile for Whimsical Wednesdays


This is the best I could do in less than 10 minutes. I came in late from church and DH was already ready for bed. Ooops! Gotta hurry, hurry, hurry!!! The colours reminded me of a paper pack I’ve had for ages, exactly the colours in the inspiration photo. Go to Whimsical Wednesdays to see the picture.


Yep, I know, not my usual work and I apologize for that. The flower was already a very pale aqua but I darkened it with Broken China Distress ink  to match the inspiration picture better. The sticker was part of the paper pack. Even though I’m not so proud of this card, at least I got to use some white core cardstock! I love embossing and sanding which I can’t do with SU! cardstock.

I hope you will all play this week. I KNOW you can do a better job than I did! At least if you have more than than 10 minutes! Be sure to visit all the other DareDevils to see their wonderful creations!

This week we are welcoming THREE new members! One officially started last week but I missed adding her to my post! Sorry! With no further ado, lets welcome Kris Palakiko from last week and Jacquie Nordaune and Valerie Urtiaga who start this week! Please click on their names in my sidebar to visit their blogs. It would be great if you could leave ‘em some lovin’ comments! Debbie is unable to play this week. :(

Enjoy (sort of!), Rebecca

I can totally see the inspiration piece in your creation looks like we thought the same way with CB folders. I have never tried the white core card stock but I love it!!!!
