This card is for the IC this weekend 'cause I'm hosting again!  I've been looking for a cover for my iPhone lately and came across this website called "Gelaskins" while surfing. Lots of "artistic" work to choose from so it was hard to settle on just one that I liked. I finally went with this print called "Bloom". I liked the color combo and the simple design so I tried to keep with that concept.

My background is glossy paper sponged with distress inks by Tim Holtz. I stamped the bare trees with StazOn ink, sponged a deep pink across the top of the trees and added a few white dots with a white gel pen. The ribbon is some scrap satin ribbon tied with Bowdabra wire and curled a bit.  (Side note -- the Bowdabra wire is so much easier to use than standard craft wire, makes it really easy to create a simple bows; sometimes it's the little things that make a difference, right??).   The ribbon truly is a dark pink magenta that matches the trees IRL!  I added a Websters Pages "Little Whimsies" resin heart embellishment to the middle of the bow after gathering it with the wire.

I hope you'll be inspired by the website! Come join in this weekend!!

TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!

Oh my word, that's GORGEOUS, Anne! I love it! I'll try to play this weekend, though I'm not sure if it will work or not. I'm supposed to be doing a workshop. Hugs!
