Hello for LID Monthly Meet Up Challenge

Wednesday, September 16, 2015

Happy Wednesday friends. I had a chance over the weekend to make a card for the September Monthly Meet Up challenge at Lil' Inker Designs. 

I started out by blending some distress inks onto some water color card stock. I then spritzed it with a bit of water and then after it had dried, ran it through my machine using the Circles & Diamonds Stiched Pattern die from Lil' Inker Designs. I then die cut the Hello Word die several times in cream card stock and then once using some gold card stock I had in my stash. I added a thread nest and some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and rounded the corners and called it good. I just love how this turned out and am excited to send it to a friend sometime this fall.

I'm also linking this up to the Die Crazy challenge over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you are having a most fabulous day!

This is gorgeous, Alanna! The background reminds me of the colors of the leaves in fall. You definitely tapped into your inner Kay! :) Adore the hello in gold and the delicate gold thread. The sequins are a great addition, too. Hope you are having a wonderful week.
