I used the color inspiration from CCMC to include Island Indigo, Daffodil Delight and Smoky Slate. Since I knew I was going to use the Arrow embossing folder I wanted the card to be a little grungy and have a freestyle feel to it. It ended up a touch eclectic with bits and pieces here and there, somewhat masculine but then a pop of butterflies to keep it a little girly. ;)
After embossing the card front and swiping it with a Smoky Slate ink pad, I then layered on a couple strips of cardstock in Island Indigo and Daffodil Delight, followed by a strip of silver glimmer paper. I stamped the first shape from the Geometrical stamp set, and then without re-inking I stamped a few more to give it a directional/movement feel. The ends were trimmed and adhered to the cardstock panels with washi tape. I tucked a circle ring behind the shape and then put on a couple butterflies along with a candy dot. Quick and easy!
One more thing before I go!
I went skiing yesterday with our HR team and had such a great time! It’s been ages since I’ve been skiing (18 years!) and this year I finally went back out after deciding snowboarding just wasn’t for me after a few failed attempts. ;) This year alone I’ve been three times already! Thanks in part to my work - we have gold passes which allow you to go to any resort in Utah and I’ve been able to use them for two days for Jake and I and then went with my team yesterday. I’m not the best skier but I’m getting better each time I go which is exciting! Progress!
Here are a couple photos I snapped on the mountain. I have not always loved the snow but I’m growing more and more to appreciate the beauty of Utah and the “Greatest Snow on Earth” especially when I am learning to enjoy it! ;) Also, these photos didn’t have any photo editing done to them and are straight from my iPhone (text added from Rhonna Designs app) and are #nofilter. :) Isn’t it beautiful?! The sun was shining and the weather was amazing!
And last a peek at the fun colors of this card!
