Everything Day - Celebrate it All!

Hello there, TRC fans, Mary-Ann with you today.   I am sharing my last card of the month using August's Creative Cafe KOTM.  E.V.E.R.Y. single stamp is amazing in this pack.  
I really wanted to use the pinks, blacks and gold that were provided in the kit so this is what I came up with.  


I started with an A2 base in black.  Keeping every line clean and simple I added a 1" pink and white stripped piece backed with foam to the left side.  Cut a thin strip of gold and added it as shown.  I then cut a 2x3 piece from the map paper, backed it with foam and attached to the lower right.  I stamped the flower shown (two times) from the "Flower Bouquet" stamp set with black ink on scraps of the white paper.  At this point, I would suggest you do your fussy cutting.  I then added Scrap Happy glue to each dot and sprinkled with gold glitter.  I used my heating tool to help heat set these.   You could also use stickles, a gold pearl pen or embossing powder to get to get the same effect.  Add your flowers after they have completely dried, overlapping slightly.  


Stamped my sentiment, backed with thin gold paper and tied a tight little pink bow.  This is the time that I wish I had the Bow-it-all to help with the perfect bow.  That is definitely on my "NEED" list.

I hope you have been inspired to create with color combos that work for you.  
See you in September!
