JAI106 & CCCB97


My card today is a bit out of the norm for me.  I don't usually put gigantic, multi-layered flowers on my cards since they are incredibly bulky, but I had made this flower a while back and was getting tired of moving it around on my desk, so decided to put it on a card!  The Just Add Ink sketch 106 was perfect for a big flower:


 and and the City Crafter Challenge 97 had a beautiful inspiration,  It's All Natural:

And so here is my card:



I used several "natural" images stamped collage-style on canvas fabric, Crumb Cake and Naturals Ivory cardstock in the colors of Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Sahara Sand.  Above my flower is a fun little embellishment, and my sentiment is stamped on a little vellum banner:



Thanks for visiting today!

 Cassidy is helping to feed the kitty;  can you guess what happens next?
Mmmmmm.....yep, she ate a piece of cat food!  As she would say, "OH MY!"  Fastest little hand in Pennsylvania!

Oh LeAnne, I love that big bloom you made and you have inspired me to maybe actually stamp on my piece of canvas next time I pull it out to look at.

I have done the same thing with a big flower. Moved it around then got sick of that and put it on a card. LOL This is a gorgeous card! I love that flower and the panels. I want to know about those wonderful embellishments.
I hope it was dry food. LOL Did she like it?

Love your card. I have a couple butterflies on my table that I keep moving around. I should take your lead and put them on something. LOL Great use of the canvas paper. I have heard cat food is yummy. LOL Never tired it myself.

You're right -- that sketch was just perfect for your flower! The card is just so beautiful; it's perfect, I think, for today's Sugar Creek Hollow challenge too!

It's beautiful- LOVE those brown/sepia colors! As for Cassidy, I grew up with a few guys that regularly ate the dog's dry food- they've all done quite well for themselves ;)

Cassidy is adorable. Did she like the cat food or spit it out right away?

Mae Collins said...

WOW LeAnne this is beautiful. I love the natural tones and stamp images you have used and that flower is gorgeous. I can truly relate to the fact of making something and you keep moving it from place to place on craft desk...so best to put them on your project instead. Thanks for joining in with us this week at Just Add Ink.
