Shades of...

Hi All!  Sorry it's been over a week since I've posted!  My birthday is on Tuesday and I actually took the whole week off work which is lovely but also meant getting some things in order for while I'm gone.  But I just kept reminding myself that I'm going to have much more time than normal to spend in my craft room next week and that made it all worth while :)

Enough about that- how about we talk about some crafty stuff?  I got to do something a little fun this time around- I needed a card for a bachelorette party!  Now, keeping my audience in mind, I didn't want anything too terribly off color but wanted something with a little bit of sauciness and comes this gorgeous stamp from Krista over at Saturated Canary called Grey Tie- you guessed it, inspired by 50 Shades of Grey.  Now I wanted the card to still be really pretty so I paired my image up with some Teresa Collins design papers which compliment the image while still keeping it, I hope, a little classy :)  I saw the Mojo Monday sketch and something about it just pulled at me so that's really how the layout of the card came about.  You'll notice some of my favorite things like bling and some gorgeous, glittery flowers- basically lots of girlie goodness!  In the end I really like this card- one of those ones that's almost hard to give away to someone else, you know?  Guess I'll just have to make another!  Thanks for stopping by- I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
