Lorien's Laundry

This is what I did last night. Yes, I did laundry. You are probably asking yourself why you came to my blog to see laundry. I'm sure you have enough of your own. I did more than just laundry. I made a card. Check it out!


Look familiar? I was inspired by the colors in my sweater. I wasn't able to work the lighter pink into it. I tried Pretty In Pink, but it was too light. And Regal Rose just wasn't quite right. So I left it out. I tried sponging Regal Rose on Pretty in Pink and it just wouldn't work. Now it is bugging me though. I may go back and try to get it in there some how. This card follows this sketch. It is the sketch you need to use to submit an entry into the Verve Visual Honored Guest Challenge. The winner will be the Verve Guest Designer for the month of June. This card uses Verve Visual's Seeing Stars and Polka Stars (for the sentiment), Papertrey Stampers Select White, SU! Basic Black, Certainly Celery, Purely Pomagranate, Blue Bayou, Creamy Caramel, and Close to Cocoa. I heat embossed the sentiment and the stars with black embossing powder. The ribbon I got from a secret sister so I'm not sure where it is from and the brads are SU! black brads from the Vintage Brads collection. I punched out the large and small stars with SU!'s star punches. The medium ones I cut out.

As I was putting my jammies on last night I was checking out the colors in my shirt. This may become a reoccuring feature on my blog. Now go do some laundry and be inspired!

Love the card! I think it's great that you posted a photo of your inspriation too and Crystal, I don't think that's a clean basket of clothes...but that's ok, I don't see anything suspicious on them ;)
