I absolutely loved this week’s theme for Global Design Project – #GDP019 The theme is love. I had made this card over the weekend and it is perfect for my entry this week! How wonderful is that?
I was fortunate enough to spend an entire weekend with other Stampin’ friends, all just doing what we love! I am part of a group here in St Louis that sneaks off a few times a year to an undisclosed location where we have the luxury of a great big house with a huge room to stamp in. It is a great get away. We simply laugh, eat and stamp. What could be better than that? And this weekend could not have come at a better time. I was so happy to leave the stress of work and the holidays behind and just create art for a few days. It was a fun getaway.
For this card, I wanted to center it around the flocked specialty paper and the Watermelon Wonder ribbon. I loved the look of this design from the Shine On Specialty Paper. I also felt the paper was a perfect backdrop to the 3-D look of the Botanical Builder Framelits. But I was undecided about what “kind” of card to make it in terms of the sentiment. A good thing about being with other stamping friends is that we all borrow from each other! Once I voiced my confusion over a sentiment in a style that would work with this card, my friend Sally pulled her set from the Watercolor Wishes kit and once I looked at it, I knew what I wanted the card to say. It was a special card and deserved to be given to someone with love! And so it was a happy accident that this card became the perfect entry for #GDP019 this week!
