A Smokey Plum Card "Thinking of You"

Color My Heart Color Dare had a simple color combo this week. Smokey Plum and White Daisy.  I pulled out a sheet of the Smokey Plum Paper fundamentals to make a card with the Art Philosophy cartridge, White Shimmer Tape (I loves me some shimmer tape!) purple sparkles (who doesn't like bling?) The stamp set is the August Stamp of the Month. 

Here is the outcome:

August Stamp of the Month "Framed"

The red designates cricut cuts to make life easy.

This is a pretty simple card. The card is 4 1/4 X 5 1/2. The plum rectangle is 
3 3/4 x 5. I trimmed the edges in the White Shimmer tape, cut a 3/4 x 4 1/2 banner strip in the Smokey Plum Fundamental paper Adventure Assortment z2032 and showed the white heart side then added a strip of shimmer tape and banner the one edge. I used the circle2 on page 31 of Art Philosophy and cut it at 2 1/4 " and the little flower is flower6 on page 29. The purple sparkles are from my stash only because I couldn't find my purple Glitter Gems z1936. The Thinking of You is stamped in Smokey Plum and cut out by hand. The leaves are just a hand cut leaf from Sweet Leaf Paper Fundamentals Adventure Assortment z2032. Framed is the August Stamp of the Month S1508.

I do love shiny and this little card is very shiny which makes me happy ;-)

Hope you like the card. Our new Annual Inspirations catalog goes live on September 1st. Be sure to check out all the retiring items that will go away August 31st.
