Cameo Card.....


Good morning everyone...I promised you a card this morning using my cameo and here it is!  I actually love how this turned out and I definitely see some more of these in my future.  I used a Spellbinders oval die and the little die directly behind my cameo is a Marianne die.  I made the flowers using the Posy Patch die from Heartfelt Creations and I just cut the edges to make the little pointed edges.  I started with just plain old white card stock and used Distress Inks to color.   The leaves are from Spellbinders and some more Marianne dies.  I love using dies on my cards as I can have so many pretty shapes and give each one a distinct look.  And of course you  know me, I love making flowers. 
I'm beginning to get back in the swing of things and being a little more creative.  I'm hoping to start on some Christmas things soon.  I know, I know....Christmas in July, right?  But if I don't start early, it usually doesn't get done.  We will see what happens next.  I just like to go with the flow and sometimes that isn't in the direction you know you should be going.  But the older I get, the more I realize this is just how it is and it's OK!

Well I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend planned.  Nothing exciting going on here.  Maybe a little crafting along the way.

Glenda, this is beautiful! What a fabulous cameo and I love how you have arranged everything to showcase it....we are just back from a short vacation with our daughter & family and after collecting the tomatoes from the garden I will be canning today. So no crafting for me just yet....hopefully sometime over the week-end!!!

WOW Glenda! This is a gorgeous card, I love everything about this and IF I can get everything together to make one like this I would love to!! I always love reading your blog and this one just blows me away.

How did you make the cameo? I love the pink. I showed your card to my granddaughter and she said "oh, I've seen those things before but they're usually blue". She's 14 and has no idea about cameos. I told her "yes they are but I absolutely love this pink!" Hope the storm didn't do any damage your way. We were out of power for a bit and had some trees down but nothing major. Thanks again for sharing the beauty.
