Florida in January
I feel for all those people that live up north and are buried in snow...I just couldn't do it! I love the sun to much. So I decided to make a card for one of my aunts that live in Chicago that comes down every spring to soak up the sun.
The pig is from Pigs Parade stamp set from Sparkle n Sprinke, and the Florida is from the Stamp set I embossed both images with Black Detail EP and colored them with Pearlescent Watercolors. For the brads, I first heated up the brad holding it with long tweezers, then I dipped it in the Hot Pink EP bottle and heated again. Wha Laa, instant brad that matches perfect!! For that background layer I ran a piece of 4 1/4 x 3 1/4 cardstock through the Cuttlebug embossing folder, then brayered the Glue Pad on it, and sprinkled it with Bubblegum glitter.
Have a sunshiny day!!
