To the world...

Edit: This card was chosen as the Grand Creation Winner at Picture Perfect Creations Week #20!




Hi there - it's another hot one today...but I've been staying cool in my crafty room!

Today's card is for The Shabby Tea Room's Let's Make an Impression (embossing) challenge #17 and I used the colors from the Picture Perfect Creations Color Combo #20 with Kazan's Sketch #56 from 2 Sketches 4 You. It also qualifies for the Cuttlebug Challenge: Be Inspired #91 Doilies and Lace. Put it all together and what do you get...a very pretty card!

The sentiment is one of my all time faves from Verve's One Person stamp set. It's stamped with ColorBox Chestnut Roan and so are the flowers...they're from the same stamp set too! I used my copics to color them in and voila'! The ColorMates Dark Autumn Red is embossed with Cuttlebug Victoria embossing folder and the papers are from Basic Grey Bittersweet. They all sit on some chocolate colored Bazzill cardstock. A little lace, a lotta Prima Say It With Pearls and there you have it!

I really hope you like it...thanks for stopping by today!

  3. OH Pattie, I LOVE your card! The flowers are gorgeous and rich in color! The lace is so pretty on the edges and that sentiment is one of my all time favorites! My mom still quotes it from a card that I gave to her once!
