CTS170


Hi all!  Yay, Saturday and the weekend!  No stamping time for me today, off to a luncheon with my family!  I squeaked in a little time yesterday, after seeing my friend Michele's beautiful CAS(E) this Sketch card here, using this sketch:


This was not my first attempt...the first was a FAIL!  So I regrouped, made it simpler, and came up with this, using the floral image from Butterfly Basics:


I stamped the image in Basic Black and used Marina Mist, Pacific Point and Old Olive ink to color it. I found some older washi tape in Old Olive and used it to create the panels, then mounted the floral on top.  Sentiment is from Endless Thanks.  I mounted it all on a heavyweight SU card base.


Cassidy likes to help me bag up my SU orders...here she is, writing the customer's name on the bag for me!  Good practice for her, too!



Thanks for popping in today--be sure to come back tomorrow with a new Paper Players challenge!

Love this - so pretty in its simplicity! Cassidy is looking very hard-working in her specs too! Have a lovely day!

I love the depth you gave the bigger flower with the two shades of blue. That stamp set is going on my order May 3 for the bundle. I have a lot of washi tape that I never use. This is perfect for it! What size scallop and circle did you use? Enjoy the luncheon with your family. Beautiful card! TFS.

The blue blooms are so pretty and I love the teeny blue scallops you've backed them with!! That's a mighty cute lil' helper you have there!!

Really pretty. Love blue and green. I'm glad you admitted you had a fail. I found this sketch quite difficult and am not happy with mine, but I posted it anyway.
