JustRite Friday Challenge 052

Today I found some time to play and also found the JustRite Challenge Blog. I didn’t know they had one but I haven’t had much time lately so that might explain it.
Anyhoo, I have gotten some wonderful supplies and have been dying to use them. The color inspiration at JustRite fit in perfectly for some of my new toys. I have quite a few pics so kick back and enjoy!

This adorable cutie is called Ava with Present and she is by Wild rose Studio. I bought this stack of papers called Romantique by Graphic 45 and wish I had bought more because I just love these colors and the stack is awesome. My gosh, their new line is just great!!
I sewed all of the edges, roughed it up using my Zutter Distrezz It All and inked the edges using Tim Holtz Forest Moss Distress ink. I also sanded the solid colors using my sanding block.

The butterfly punch is by McGill and can be special ordered at Stamping Scrapping. I also inked these after punching.

My sentiment is by JustRite and is from the Birthday Card Kit. It is great, tons of sentiments and tons of different outside borders in this kit. I decided instead of doing a border I would stamp in and then cut it using SSD Anglaise Lace Circle Dies. I then mounted it on one of the SSD Frou Frou Tag Dies. I added a couple of pearls.

The pearl strings that I have used were a gift from a secret sister swap and I just love them. They were perfect for the Graphic 45 paper.

I colored Ava using the following Copics:
  • Skin – E13, E11, E00, E000, R12
  • Dress – YR02, YR00, YR0000, BG11, BG10
  • Shoes and hair – N8, N6, N4, N2
  • Wings – Ranger Stickles – Crystal
I got a little crazy with this card but I so love the way it turned out. I have been trying to be a little more creative, and venture outside of my comfort zone, and I think it is working out OK.
Now, for the inside.

I added a couple more butterflies and the rest of my pearl strings.

On the other side I used the large Anglaise Lace Circle die and a JustRite stamp from the Wedding Sentiments set. I thought this was a very nice sentiment for a birthday also. I added a box using my bow easy.
With my card being so thick I needed a box envelope so I scored one up using the new Scor-pal. All of the new lines are just awesome!
IMG_1814 (Small)
The front of the envelope looked a little empty so I decided to decorate that too. I used Spellbinders Labels 18, the largest and the next size under. I stamped using another sentiment from the JustRite Wedding set and the flower stamp is from the SSD Lacey Circles stamps.
OK, so with all of that being said here is a pic of both the envelope box and the card.

As always, thanks for stopping by and visiting!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this card!!! Such a cute image, and all the embellies really make the card. I'm just getting started in card-making, so I'm totally dying to get more embellies so that I have lots to choose from. Right now, I'm just going and buying stuff for each card as I make it ~ that's definitely not inspiring my creativity though. I just have to keep collecting stuff!!!
