More Favourite Things

Last DT challenge for the month of January.. how quickly has the first month of 2012 flown?! VERY fast!! A lotta fave things have been happening this month over at Cartolinas. Good job I have a lot of favourite things I like crafting with, heehee.

This week over at Pollycraft we want you to make a project to showcase 


We can't wait to see what kinda things you guys show us. So let's head right into it.

For my card I used the gorgeous Luna Bitterfrost - Hearts Rock. This girl (along with Sonny Honeycloud) is half the reason I fell in love with Pollycraft in the first place. Her and Chester had my heart from first sight. :)

Okay, so truth is.. I woulda gone with a brown and blue combo - as that is my all time fave. EVA. But there has been a LOT of that on my blog just recently, so instead I took my colour inspiration from my favourite paper pad right now. My Minds Eye - Breeze. Gahhh!! I could sit and stroke it all day, but instead I've been a REALLY good girl and I've cut into it with no holds barred. I think there are only 2 or 3 sheets left untouched. Seriously. :)

I coloured Luna with ProMarkers and Copics. The crown paper (pretty fitting, huh? ;)) has been cut using the heart circle nesties and distressed. I added some aqua seam binding underneath and tied a knot to the left of it. I layered up some tiny cream pom pom trim with a blue strip of paper and a punched scalloped border. I then adhered the 'you are so special' square, cut from a piece of the patterned paper over the top and added a blue moonstone brad.

I love letter stamps, wish I had more. I used my fave of all time to create the Queen of Hearts sentiment using Blue Bayou ink. I used a spellbinders banner die and adhered it at a jaunty angle. Some WOC goodness finishes this FAVE card off. :)

Join us over at Pollycraft. :)
