Clean and Simple Wish

Busy, busy, busy....that is what I am this week. We have a wedding this weekend that I am a bridesmaid in and my husband is an usher, so I am doing everything I can to prepare so that things run smoothly. See we will have both kids (and a dog) with us because it is a family wedding. It is a BIT more complicated being a bridesmaid when you have your children coming to the wedding. Thankfully there will be lots of family around to help out...just a little stressful! So because of that this is all you will see of me this week, but don't forget to check-out the PMS Blog on Friday for the Makeup 4 the Weekend Challenge #35! Oh and today is the last Review Day of the July Release over on the PMS Blog...so go check out what the designers created with the Beauty sets! Don't forget that the final day to use the 15% off coupon that you collected during the Blog Hop is Wednesday night (7/14). If you didn't collect your code, follow the Blog Hop from the beginning and collect your letters to spell out your code!

So this card is using two challenges: Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #147 and the SCS Clean and Simple Challenge #75 - Dry Embossing. I am not sure this ended up a truly clean and simple card...I usually envision less layers for clean and simple...but it does have a lot of white space so I say it qualifies! I stamped the large heart dandelion from the new Dandy Wishes set from Paper Makeup Stamps...see I told you I love this set and I haven't even had a chance to do some of the other things I want to with it yet! I cut it into squares and colored them in with markers. Then I mounted them on black cardstock. Stamped the same image in Basic Black on my white base, so I could have a stem to my flower. My dry embossing for the CAS Challenge came in with the 2 lines on either side of my flower. Then I inked up the Wish in black and colored the dandelion top with markers. All of it was matted on the four colors of cardstock and finished off with a black rhinestone sticker.

Have a great rest of the week! Make sure to check out the Makeup 4 the Weekend Challenge on Friday. Since I am having hair AND makeup done for the wedding, I may post a pic...I am not done up like that very often! Thanks for checking out my kind of engineering!
