Lifetime of Love For TGIF Challenge 461!

Well we are hoping to inspire you with this week's TGIF Challenge!  It is a fun inspirational challenge.  I am sharing my card first & then I will show you the challenge!  Then - head over to the TGIF Challenge Blog to play along with us!

What could the challenge be?!  Well here it is! 

Use his graphic as a sketch, or take the colors, or use the general vibe, or take the watercoloring wash technique, or whatever you think of - try it out!  We want to see! 😁

Here are a few more pics of the details! I actually made a similar card for a Stampin' Up! Artisan project recently.  You can see that post HERE. This is just a little different of a take! 

I did lots of watercoloring with this, and I thought that floral frame from the Lifetime of Love Dies was PERFECT!  I stamped & embossed that leaf background, and then went to town watercoloring.  I have done this lots before and I truly love it.  It's so much fun and I think it is so gorgeous!  Then I just added the frame, that I die-cut in white, and watercolored/die-cut the flowers and added that!  ***TIP: use Adhesive Sheets on the cardstock you are cutting the frame out of.  That makes it SO EASY to adhere down to your project! 

I also love the little postage accent under the greeting that I also did on my original card, so I added that! 

Bring in a little more gold accent by putting some on the side, and VOILA!  I think it's so pretty! 

Here is one more view of the full card! 

I hope you enjoy!  Now that you have seen this - it's time to head to the TGIF Challenge Blog & play along with us!  We are so excited and always love seeing what you create!
