Hey there...

How about calling me up for a friendly chat?

 Make sure you head over to Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge Blog as they are having a really fun challenge this week.

This weeks Trend Watch Challenge is all about one of our favorite pass times.....the good old telephone. We were given this picture for inspiration.

For my project today I printed this image and punched out the small dial using a 1 1/4" Circle punch. I thought this would make a perfect center for the flower that I created using a leaf that I masked from PS Reflections stamp set. Using SU Midnight Muse and Memento London Fog ink I stamped around a 1 1/4" circle to make my flower image below.

I cut out the flower image with a Fiskars exacto and then adhered the dial to the center to create my flower.  I cut two pieces of SU Midnight Muse Satin Stitched Ribbon and attached them under my flower to give the appearance of leaves. The background for my card was created using SU Whisper White CS cut out with PTI's Hexagon Die. Using SU Midnight Muse CS I punched numerous circles with my SU 3/4"Circle Punch and attached them to the back of the die cut image with a Fiskars Glue Pen. Using some SU Dimensionals I attached it to a Whisper White card front. The flower image was then attached to a 1 1/4" piece of Whisper White CS that I made into a banner by chomping off the end with my 1" SU square punch. I love doing that! I can create banners out of any size cs I wish. I finished off the banner using the "Hey There" image from Paper Smooches Sentimental Sampler Stamp set. I masked the image using scotch tape so that I could fit the phrase into my small space. I also used the three small circle images from PS Reflections for my ... and stuck some rhinestones in them for a little extra bling.  

Hope you are having a great weekend. Remember to give a friend a call and tell them how much they mean to you! Thank goodness for the good ol' telephone. :)
