FFF: My Favorite Piece of...

Friday, June 4, 2010

Hello Sweet Peeps!

How's your week been? Busy? Relaxing? I've had my head glued to a computer all week and man, my shoulders and neck hurt like heck! I'm thinking maybe I need to snag The Man's gift certificate I got him for his birthday and use it myself! Nah! I couldn't do that to him....but I am thinking it might be fun to have a couples massage and invite myself along when he goes. Ahhhh, doesn't that sound blissful? :)

It's Friday and that means I have another Farm Fresh Friday challenge to share with you! You gals are going to have a lot of fun with this one! It's another inspiration challenge, BUT this time - you provide the inspiration!! There's only one, ok, there's just two rules: the inspiration has to be a piece of jewelry AND you have to sneak some BLING onto your card somewhere! Awesome right?! Told ya, you'd love it! :)

My pretty piece of inspiration jewelry was a piece I found while window shopping on Etsy.com a while back. Isn't it beeeeautiful?! So green and fresh! So for my card today I borrowed the colors from this piece and used sweet Miss Laurie to make this thank you card.


As usual, I colored up the image with my SU reinkers and aquapainter brush. I used Black Soot from Distress Inks to color in Laurie's body and a teeny tiny bit of SU's Going Gray on her white stripe. The rest of the image was colored with a whole stash of SU colors. As I do with all my Critter images, I added some Glossy Accents to Laurie's eyes to make them shine. The layout is from this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge and I added just a smidgen of bling to the card for some sparkle.

There's probably more amethyst in my card than in the jewelry, but that's ok - it's supposed to INSPIRE, right?? Hehehe!

Sorry I am so late getting around from last week. This Baby Growing in my Belly has gotten big enough it is hard to sit and leave comments cause I can’t breath very well when I have to sit in that position LOL!!!

GOR-GEOUS!! I can totally see how this bracelet inspired your card and what a fanastic card it is! I really love how that one piece of PP stands alone and then how the the layered nestie with the stitching, the beautiful sheer ribbon and the bling bring an elegance to this gorgeous card!
