MyCrush Card Challenge

Do you ever look at your papercrafting supplies and try to figure out how to use them in more creative ways?  Well, that's how I interpreted the Heart 2 Heart Challenge for this week!  The challenge was to use Close to My Heart's Picture My Life cards or MyCrush book in your project. 

I chose to create a card using a page that I tore out of the MyCrush Bluebird book.  I also used a 3x3 card from the MyCrush Favorites assortment.  It was fun to use these papers in unconventional ways! 

As it turns out, the purple paper I ripped out from the Bluebird book matches our new ink color, Thistle.  Isn't it a pretty color?  Then, I stamped the cross design in Crystal Blue on the dovetail pennant.  The grid paper is from the MyCrush assortment.  I also placed two Slate twist ties behind the Pacifica card stock for added interest.

Using one of my favorite stamp sets, Funky Blossoms, I stamped the flower in Canary and Pear.  I also stamped the sentiment in Thistle.  The colors really pop on this card, which I love!

Thanks for stopping by!
