I'm finally back after having my husband's family in town last week to celebrate my in-laws 50th wedding anniversary! (which actually isn't until December, but it was best time for everyone to travel)
Anyway, I helped with the party decor by making some centerpieces for a few of the tables. I painted some small terra cotta pots gold, and planted succulents in them! (Have I mentioned that I love succulents?)
I finished them off with die cut tags (Hero Arts) and number dies (MFT) tied on some black twine.
and of course I had to make them a card too...
Keeping with the gold and black theme, I stamped the large flower from Avery Elle's Petals & Stems in gold and embossed. I used the 'happy' cutaways die from Winnie & Walter along with the anniversary sentiment from the Big, Bold & the Happy, and created a 'shadow' effect my layering the same die cut from black card stock. I tied in the same 50 number dies from the centerpieces in gold glitter card stock.
Hope to get to more crafting this week, but I have been coloring along (when I can) with Kathy Racoosin's newest 30 day coloring challenge and posting onto Instagram- check it out if you're not already joining in! Such an easy to squeeze in a bit of craftiness, even if it's not a complete card!
Until next time...
