Thinking of You (Card)

I read about the latest challenge at the blog of one of my fave scrapbooking brands, Nikki Sivils, and of course, I participated. :D

The challenge, scrap a size you don't normally scrap.

Instead of the usual layout, I created a card. A circle-shaped card! :D

Now, my usual cards' sizes are either square or rectangle. So this one's truly a first! :D

I used the following NS products: patterned papers from Blueberry Hill, We Are Family and Beatrice collections; journaling spot, warm cord brad and burlap button.

Other materials used are white cardstock, local lace and leaves, AAS wooden butterfly and craft wire, Ranger liquid pearl, stickles and distress inks, Martha Stewart puncher, chipboard frame, acrylic paint and hand-made lace flowers.

The two white lace flowers with green brad in the center are my hand-made creations, by the way. :D

In addition, the three-layered flowers (light orange, violet, dark orange) were among the pack of flowers that I won during a Nikki Sivils scrapbook class held in our LSS, Lasting Impressions. This prize, according to NS DT Ria Mojica, came from Nikki herself. So, in a way, this 3-layered flower also makes it a NS product. Hehehe. :D

A close-up on the sentiment, "Thinking of You." I created this card for my bestfriend, Rowena, who's currently based in Bangkok, Thailand, for her birthday this coming October 29th. I hope she receives this in the mail in time!

Before I end this post, please notice the little beaver inside the frame. I just find her sooo cute. LOL

That's it! Gotta go!

Enjoy the weekend. :)

Hope everyone's having a happy Sunday! :D

Just discovered the ScrapFIT challenge blog through a local scrapbook group in Facebook, as well as their Workout #53 challenge.

I placed my journaling in my "Grow" layout of my little boy around the Tattered Angels stencil. Journaling reads: Wear your big smile. Play what you want to play. Be as happy as you can be.

Materials used: WEBSTERS PAGES: patterned papers, diecut stickers. PRIMA: patterned papers. TATTERED ANGELS: glimmer mist, stencils. Others: chipboard alphas.

Thanks as always! :D
