It's time for another PartyTime Tuesdays challenge! This week's theme for the challenge is to incorporate a chandelier and make it a "romantic" card--Chandelier Romance. Here's my take on the theme:
My chandelier is a digi stamp from Bev of the PT Tuesdays Design Team. (Thanks, Bev!) I printed it on my patterned paper, then cut the paper to the size I needed. Once I had it on my base, I added some pearls to serve as the "lights" and Art Glitter in Black to enhance the chains on the chandelier.
The black and white ribbon was found in my HUGE ribbon stash (I SERIOUSLY need one of those cute little ribbon bags with the little holes in the side!!!), and the "LOVE" stamp in the corner is from Close To My Heart. (I won it at my friend Heather's CTMH Open House last week!). I cut the chair from the Sentimentals Cricut cartridge, then used my white gel pen to add the "cushion" and back design. To finish everything off, I added a black brad on each corner. Since those stuck through to the inside of the card, I cut a piece of patterned paper 5 3/8" square from a scrap of Teresa Collins's Mr. and Mrs. Love paper that I had in my stash and covered the left side of the inside of the card, which also then covered the backs of the brads.
The inspiration for my card this week came from two places. First, I saw this picture at my hair stylist's shop last week (Thanks for the AWESOME red hair, Michelle!):
Creative Belli Blog as well as at Creative Craft World, Stampin' for the Weekend, Stamping Vacation, and Card Makin' Mamas. It qualified for Stamping Vacation's Home Sweet Home Challenge, too!
I hope you'll play along with us this week! Check out the blog at Party Time Tuesdays for more info on this week's challenge. You'll have until 11:59 p.m. MST to submit your entry. Hope to see your creations there!
