happy day

today's card is one that i made for new friend of mine who just closed on their new house! it's an exciting time! and i thought, why not use some hero arts products and get in on the fun over a blog named hero, right? :) this time, it's free style - no limitations! oh yeah!

so here's my card:

**the lighting is not the best, it' has been raining all night and all morning, so there's no sun to assist me!**

i must say, i do like it a lot! :) it is arguably my favorite color combination (just ask my littlest mann - his room is done in these colors!)! 
i stamped the row of houses stamp set with the wet cement mid tone ink - LOVE me some shadow ink! :) then i stamped one of the houses with the tide pool (looooooooooove that color!) mid-tone shadow ink and popped it up to really make it stand out. i love popped up white on white on a card, so the 'background' panel on this card is white, as well. 

then i just happened to have some matching ribbon (ribbon, you say? what's that?! lol! side note: i realized as i was making this card, that i have not used ribbon on a card...in...well, a while! i blame it on washi - you can't beat it! and i even thought about going the washi route with this card. but i really wanted a bow...so i went with ribbon!). 

the sentiment is from the studio calico/hero arts set oh snap! and finally, i finished it up with some fabbie sequins and pearls. the end! so that's it! 
enjoy! :)


  1. Love the pops of colour with the turquoise. Thanks for playing along with us at A Blog Named Hero!

  2. ...and a FLAWLESS bow it is too! Great colors, sequins and I love that skyline stamp. Fab design girlie! :)

  3. LOOOOOOOVE these colors--what a fab comob! And I LOVE that you added ribbon--- and the story! LOL! I am a hoarder of ribbon-- I cannot seem to cut into it! It's just too gorgeous! Just like that silk teal one you've used!! SO pretty! LOVE that you used some sequins-- I might have to jump on that band wagon soon!

    All around--AMAZING card! LOOOOOOVE it:)
