You color My world


I am excited about this card for 2 reasons:  #1- I completed the LIM challenge on day 1 (click HERE for details on this week's sketch LIM challenge).  #2 - I have been so taken with and inspired by Susan Raihala's work since I happened upon her blog a year or so ago. I feel that my inner Susan came out in this creation.  With that said, this is also a submission for One-Layer Wednesday 76: Color in Winter:  Make a one-layer card that uses white, gray, with a pop of one bright color of your choice. (If you must, you may use black for the sentiment.) 

I masked the area with the stamped geometric design per the LIM sketch and scored it on the sides.  I clipped the metal "legs" off of the rhinestone brad so that I could attach the brad with a glue dot to keep the metal pieces from coming through to the inside of the card.

Materials used:
Stamps~PTI Rosie Posie and Happy Trails
Paper~PTI White Paper Basics
Ink~Memento London Fog, SU Basic Gray
Accessories~Scor Pal, SU Rhinestone brads

Thank you for visiting my blog. I am so grateful for your feedback.

Great stamping Stephanie... and a terrific card. I nearly always cut the legs off brads... I find that they can be positioned so much more accurately with a glue dot!
Superb card!
Thanks so much

Love this card. I can see that I'm going to have to buy Rosie Posie just for the hexagons!

This is gorgeous, Stephanie. I love the pattern you've created in gray and black. Fabulous stamping. The triple scored lines really add to the design, too. :) Ann Y.

Your card is stunning. Love it. Just a question: What do you use to trim the legs off of your brads?

Thanks for the inspiration!

Oh, I love this one, too. I've got to come back later, or I'll miss all my morning activities. I think we must have the same craft room. Love what you have done with those R-P Hexagons, and the scoring is such a nice touch. Lately, I've discovered how much scoring adds to a simple card.
