cQc 157/ CFC73/HYCCT1205 - You are SO amazing!





For this week's Colour Q challenge- perfectly appropriate in Breast Cancer Awareness month.


And for this week's CASual Friday challenge - For the Girls:


Also for today's Hope You Can Cling To Challenge at Splitcoaststampers - Courage.

 I copied (oops, I mean was inspired by) this layout from a jeweller's ad in a magazine. When I see something that I think is so nicely balanced, I figure why reinvent the wheel?

As for the sentiment, it's pieced together (literally, I cut the stamps) from two separate sentiments from MFT Complimentary Greetings. The original sentiments are "You are pretty amazing" and "You are so beautiful".

Most of the people I would make a card to send to are better than 'pretty' amazing, but I still probably wouldn't send one that says 'you are so beautiful'. So I cut them up to make something I'm more comfortable with! I do like the big bold font and how good it looks in the black.

The flowers are from Papertrey (Beautiful Blossoms).

Love this! I tries to make a similar card for the challenge but my mojo was having none of it. So good to see it so brilliantly done.

You know you are a confident stamper when you start cutting your stamps!! Wonderful use of these colors - the scattering of flowers is festive and absolutely lovely!

Jen said...

Love this fun floral background and your amazing sentiment. You're pretty brave in my book to cut up your sentiments. It's a great idea but I'm too chicken to do it!! Thanks for joining us at colourQ this week!

Michelle said...

Beautiful, Ardyth! I love how you have created a sentiment that is more meaningful for you. :-)

Amazing card! Even though there are plenty of flowers, it's still very CAS (of course!). Great re-arrangement of the sentiment stamps - I'm getting braver with butchering my sentiment stamps now :)

The card is absolutely perfectly balanced and so eye catching! Love the idea of slicing & dicing the sentiments...great way to get some good value out of stamp sets.
