Blue Fern Studios Fun—Cards and a Layout!

So, are you ready for a little Sunday inspiration? I have some cards and a layout for you today. Let's look at what I created.

A Card Pair
Today I wanted to share a card pair I made. I used some scrap paper for the background, and the paper scrap was actually bigger than I thought so I was able to make two cards at once. That's so handy. Anyway, I used the Blue Fern Studios Symphony Corners Medium chipboard. I cut the chipboard in half and used a piece on each card. The chipboard was painted, and I added glass beads.

Papers: Memory Box Brioche and water notecard 
Blue Fern Studios chipboard: Symphony Corners Medium (Art Anthology limeaid velvet and misc. glass beads) 
Embellishments: The Crafter's Workshop template with modeling paste; Prima Merci White flower and Leeza Gibbons Wishes and Dreams flower; Petaloo Mini Pearl Daisies and Aqua Wild Blossoms; leaves from Wild Orchid Crafts; misc. jute and lace; sewing machine

An 8 1/2 x 11 Layout
And for my layout, I thought I would play with a couple of photos of one of my daughter's riding Jesse. He has arthritis so she was taking it slow and warming him up. I used two different Blue Fern Studios chipboard setspart of the Leaf Frame and a piece from the Picture Perfect set for the title. Both pieces were painted, and I added glass beads to the Leaf Frame pieces that I cut.

Gorgeous as usual! I kept passing by the Dew Drops when they had their big hey day, now I'm wishing I had bought some. Oh well, I have plenty of enamel dots for now.
