Cornish Heritage Farms Summer Fling Hop Week #3

Hello, everyone! I'm back hopping this week with the Cornish Heritage Farms 12 Weeks of Summer Fling!  It's Week #3 of the hop, which means that we're featuring the All Things Considered (ATC) line.  If you've just come from the Be Creative blog, then you know all about it.  If you haven't, you might want to start hopping over there.  The basics: hop along, comment as you go, and you'll have a chance to win some fabulous prizes! Yeah!  Create a card and put it in the gallery, and you'll have another chance to win.  And don't forget... 25% off all ATC sets through this Thursday, June 24.

Your next stop on the hop is Joanne's blog.

For my card, I used the Botanical Bliss set for my focal point, my sentiment, and a little additional stamping on the background paper (which is from 7 Gypsies).  I stamped the poppy on some vintage text, colored it with Copics, and distress inked around the edges.  I mounted it on some cardstock and popped it up, so that I could attach my tiny little sentiment with a Tim Holtz mini paper clip.  The lacy border (a punch from Martha Stewart) was punched from the blank part of the vintage text page - gives it a very warm, vintage feeling that only time can create.  I added a little hemp cord and a vintage mother of pearl button, too.

Sorry I've been a bit of a bad blogger.  Our schedule has been wicked hectic, with my husband out of town for a week.  He's back now, and we have two new tiny additions to the family..... they have been taking a lot of our time, since we didn't know if one would work out for us or not.  I'll post pictures when I get a chance (just to keep you guessing for a while)! :)  Have a wonderful Monday!

Oh, what a beautiful card! I just love the richness of the colors and the stamped image over the text. I would never have thought to do that with such a bold background but it really works. Very clever!! Can't wait to see more of your creations. This is my first visit here. I found you through the CHF blog hop. I'm having way to much fun with that and I just started!
Blessings to you~ Birgit
