CQC #127 & FMS #25 ~ Get Well Soon!

Hello! Hope everyone is doing well. I have a card today for the ColourQ challenge using the newest Freshly Made Sketch.


I'm not sure about this one. I've worked on it for two days and it still looks off to me. Is it too busy? I like all of the components, just not sure I like them together ~ oh well!  I asked my hubby and he had me remove a chunky button. I did help! (Shhhh...don't tell him though...he'll get a big head ~ hee!!


The DP is Echo Park: This & That. I used two PTI dies, the filigree border along with the spiral notebook page (it's stamped with DeNami polka dots). The fluttery butterflies are made from Websters Pages paper using a Martha Stewart punch. My blossoms are a Hero Arts stamp that I fussy cut then bedazzled them with some tiny gems. The sentiment is an Art Gone Wild stamp. Love this Doodlebug twine it's called bon bon; sound like chocolate to me! And lastly a few more sparkly gems and buttons from my stash.

Be honest friends...I can take it!!! ~Lisa

I'm drooling over the color scheme and I love the whole composition of the card design! The butterflies, buttons, twine,- -simply gorgeous!
I'll miss you while I'm away for Spring Break, but hope to catch up when I return!

It's lovely, Lisa! I especially love the cool filigree border with the gems. That is really cool how you carved out just a few petals of the flowers to lift out of the page!
