Feminine Fridays Week #7

It's Friday and it's my turn!  Before I reveal this week's card, I have a mission for Miss Regina.   Your mission for next week, should you choose to accept it, is to make a project using 3 colors and 3 stamp sets, current or otherwise.  This kind of statement is usually followed with something like this message will self destruct in 10 seconds and Regina should be running from a car but I kinda like my blog -- except for the header that I'm still working on --   :) and Regina's blog :):) and besides she's got enough on her hands right now she does not need to add running to her schedule :) so let's just leave it at "should you choose to accept it", shall we.  

On to the card. I must say that I am trying really hard to stick to current items.  When I am in my craft room I never pay attention to what is "in" so I am trying to make a conscience effort.  I choose 3 colors for the cardstock: Rose Red, Olive Green and Very Vanilla.

That's candles sticking out behind the card, not part of it - sorry about that. I then choose 3 items to use with the Big Shot: Scallop Circle #2, Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder and the Embosslit Beautiful Wings.  Are you starting to see a pattern on the 3's??  When I inked up the bird from the Always set I first applied Rose Red Classic Ink, then with a paint brush, gently added White Shimmer Ink and stamped on the Very Vanilla Scallop.  I adhered this part with Dimensionals. Unfortunately my favorite light to take pictures under is still not fixed (it's on the Honey Do List) so I was not able to capture the actual shimmer to the bird.   So my three ink colors are: Rose Red, White Shimmer Ink, and Olive Green - used on the inside of the card.

The 3 stamp sets consisted of: Always, Tiny Tags and the Hostess Set Occasional Quotes. I am going to deliver this card to the lady that always greets me in such a warm and friendly manner everytime I walk into my local Save-On-Foods. I made of point of making note of her name last time so that I could really personalize the card. This woman is super at what she does and it's refreshing to meet someone who really enjoys her work and it shows. 

See Ya Next Week!

Great job, Julie! Being out of the stamping loop for a while, I can appreciate a challenge to get me started and will do my best between now and next Friday.
