NBUS #1 (Friendship), Cure For The Monday Blues #22 (Geometric Generation), SSS Wednesday 18/6 (You Gotta Have Friends), SSS Monday 23/6 (I Ought To Use This More!)

Here’s a little card that came together over the last two evenings … yep, had a sleep break in between times!

NBUS 1, Monday Blues 22, SSSW 18-6, SSSM 23-6I started by embossing a card panel using my only NBUS EF (there are five BUS ones in my extensive collection!).  I really liked the white on white so limited additions to a touch of this and that … Wink of Stella and gems on the blooms, Tumbled Glass DI and Wink of Stella on the hearts, and some PTI stripes along the bottom to ground the image.   The sentiment’s from Annabelle Stamps (hello) and Avery Elle (my friend).    The panel’s mounted flat on the card base.  You can see some of the shimmer if you look closely … here it’s glistening it’s socks off!

I was inspired by these challenges …

Darnell’s 500+ followers NBUS Challenge (Friendship) … my third time joining in … if you haven’t played along yet there are still a couple of days left … you REALLY don’t want to miss out!  (My NBUS was the EF)

Taheerah’s Cure For The Monday Blues (Geometric Generation) … see below for the amazing inspiration picture.  This is only the second time I’ve played along … and this is challenge 22!   I focused on the two suitcases under the table for my colours and for the stripes … and kept the open, uncluttered look using the white on white embossing.

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday (You Gotta Have Friends) … the sentiment.

Simon Says Stamp Monday (I Ought To use This More) … the EF … there are so many possibilities … if only I had the free time!

I’m taking a trip round the blogsphere next, so may see you there!  Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy!  Anita 🙂

    This is such a sweet little card Antia! I love that EF, I’ve got this thing for dandelion fuzzy’s. lol I love those heart stems too! You sentiment is just perfect and I love the touch of design paper and of course who doesn’t love some bling?!! Hugs, Brenda

  2. Ardyth

    Another fantastic combination of challenges! I love the pink stripey ground and all the little details that make this sweet card so adorable!

    I love this card! You added the perfect details, the “grounding”, rhinestones and hearts, plus the Wink of Stella. I want to use many of these ideas, starting with the ef. What is the brand, please?

      1. Char

        Thank you for replying! I just made my first international order, and found several other items to buy with it. Of course. 🙂

    Oh my Anita !!! This is such a beauty, I can keep looking at this one forever, gorgeous, simply stunning and all the synonyms and adjectives that are possible 🙂

    Another winner, I bet! I love your pure white bejeweled dandelion puffs and those sweet heart posies standing on the pink stripey ground! Just delicious, Anita! Thank you so much for linking again with my NBUS Challenge and reposting the button!! Hugs, Darnell

    Absolutely stunning…and definitely another winner! You sure do know when to ‘step away from the card’ … compromising the glorious white on white with any more colors would definitely affected this stunning creation! The hearts rock! The pink lined border at the bottom totally anchors the vibrantly bejeweled flowers!

    If this is what can be accomplished by actually sleeping, then I best get my pajamas on shortly and head off to bed!

    Awesome card pal 🙂

    Love your EF, Anita!!! The pink rhinestones are perfect as the centres of the flowers and the sweet little hearts are so cute!!!! …and I can see some of the shimmer and the pink at the bottom looks great!!! Lovely card!!!

    I am so in love with white on white, Anita… just the perfect little accents on your beautiful card. Makes me wish for sequins… yes, I what is known as a ‘cheap date’ =]

    What a crime not to use that embossing folder Anita – it’s so pretty and I love how you’ve blinged it up. I really must check out Darnell’s challenge – the amount of unused stuff I have is ridiculous!

  13. Shona Chambers

    You’ve done it again!! Just loving that white on white, its so crisp and clean and the embossing folder is incredible. Its brilliant that you held back and highlighted all the good bits. Its a perfect card!

    A very classy card Anita. The white on white with just a touch of colour is gorgeous. Love the EF. My last card morphed over 3 nights

    I’m late in commenting, but here i am, clasping my hands together, gazing in *nearly* speechless admiration and awe at how stunning this card is, with essentially simple, perfectly executed elements! The ef is so lovely, and your decision to keep its elegance the star of the show has resulted in a nothing short of stunning card! Wowsers, my friend!! I’m excited to see what dazzles and delights will emerge from the remaining NBUS folders!! Love this oodles, and I’m joining Geri: Winner, winner! Hugs~c

    I love how you embraced all the white space here! The embossing is fantastic, with just enough sprinkling of colours from the stripes, gems and heart leaves! Thanks so much for playing to find a Cure For The Monday Blues!
