Meljen's Designs Challenge #207.

Good morning everyone and Happy Thursday!!!  I'm trying to wrap things up and get ahead on everything!! One of Kevin's sisters is here in the states and we are all set to leave Monday morning to head to Nashville, Tennessee to see her. They are heading up to the Kentucky Derby. I've never been to Nashville, so this should be fun. And it will be a really nice getaway for Kevin and I.  And I'll get to meet one his family members in person! :)

Okay.. on to the challenge LOL  This is Challenge #207 at Meljen's Designs and our challenge this week is Hardware (use metal embellishments). Here is my Red Hat Society themed card:

Yes... Red Hat Society inspired :)  I have been trying to get my mother to get involved with them. She needs some friends... some people to hand out with, but she just won't do it. So, for this card I used Miss Fancy Cat and Cats Eye Glasses which you can find at Meljen's Designs. The flowers are a My Favorite Things die, the oval is a Spellbinders die and the two papers were embossed. I added some Diamond Glaze on Miss Fancy Cat's glasses and then on the glasses on their own as well. For my metal embellishments I added the wonderful heart charm which I received as a birthday gift from Vicky :)  I also added the metal "Mother's Day" tag with the two brads and also the Love and XOXO words. I added two gems on either side of the glasses and then I added the ribbon as well. I did do a little bit of decoupage. I decoupaged the front of the hat and the scarf. The image was colored with my Copic markers.

  • Cheeks and Ears: R20, R22
  • Red: R14, R27, R46, R59
  • Purple: V12, V15, V17
