Try It On Tuesday – CELEBRATIONS!!

Well then, I was so happy when I heard a friend had got engaged, not only because I was delighted at the news, but also because I really had something to celebrate for this fortnights challenge at Try It on Tuesday. I have chosen to make this engagement card, but it could equally be a wedding, valentine’s day, a new baby or even Chinese New Year. It’s up to you, and you can pop over to  the TIOT site to see what the other DT member’s have been up to and link your finished project.

For this card I decided to use an 8 x 8 stepper blank so this card would make quite a statement. I found a set of scrapbook papers that were given to me a couple of years ago and liked the funky style. I am ashamed to say I have never used the LOV stamp that is the main image before (another box ticked!!) and I also used 7 dies in total, none of which have had much of an outing. I opted for ready made flowers as the colour matched so well and printed my sentiments on the pc. I still felt it looked a bit flat so I added lots of red jewels – well, I do like a bit of bling. The flowers are quite large so I made up a flap card box from Chloe’s Creative Cards (a really neat design this, much better than boxes and lids!!) ready to put in  the post. In fact I hope it’s arrived by now!

So what are you celebrating that you can commemorate with a card or piece of artwork? Can’t wait to see!
