Hello Gorgeous

Hello Everyone,

I am going to promise this is the last crafty announcement that I am the proud design team member for PINspirational. This is a fantastic challenge blog filled with all sorts of inspiration from well... Pinterest. I find the challenges thought provoking and fun. So without further ado, here is my card; enjoy.

The monochromatic design proves to be a bit serious
until you read the sentiment. Great male card for a special valentine.
I have decided not to use the sponsor image for this card but would like to give a shout out to Kitty Bee Designs and Bugaboo Digi Stamps. Their designs are darling and will sure to please.
And here is our challenge photo!

PINspirational Challenge #156
This can interrupted in many different ways like
theme, color, objects, or style.

I tried to capture the depth of the woods by first stamping trees in
the background  dark brown and die-cutting the trees in the foreground white.
Our owl is peeking through the woods.
The white trees also act to lighten up the card. I decided to leave the
border around the die cut image. It proves to make an excellent frame.
When I started coloring the owl I thought 'what on earth am I
going to do for a sentiment?' I looked at my stamps and saw
'Hello Gorgeous' and broke out laughing.
Perfect for such a serious look.
The challenge photo grabbed attention right away. I wanted to be more literal for my design. Its monochromatic theme is reflected from the photo which I love. I showed this to my husband and got a good chuckle.

The snow was brought to you by the horrible, yet very effective, masking fluid. Foul smelling product that works so well! I was so torn if I should tolerate the stench or stamp the snow. I decided to use the putrid fluid and get a fantastic result.

That should do it for me! I do hope you can play along at PINspirational. I am sure to see some awesome creations. Take care everyone and have a great day!

All the best,
