PDCC #128 & CFC#49 ~ Always on My Mind!

Taaa-daaa!!! Well...what do you think of my blog make-over? I'm debuting it as I'm pairing up two fun challenges tonight with a happy little card I put together this past weekend. First up is the Play Date Cafe where they've given us the vibrant colors of Flamingo Pink & Bright Orange! Then there is a clean and simple sketch from CAS-ual Fridays



I was inspired by the polka dots (go figure huh!!!) and the frilly blooms in the bottom left of the inspiration photo. I cut a strip of  a fun bright orange fabric that is scattered with bright pink polka dots ~ how perfect! Next I hand stitched it and pulled it together to make my shabby bloom. This lovely butterfly is from the PTI: Pretty Peonies set (thanks Ally!) and is stamped in Memento: Rose Bud ink as is my sentiment from Stampin' Up. A few gems and a sparkly button complete the card.

Thanks for stopping by today ~Lisa

Oh Lisa! Love the new blog look in these bright cheery colors ( the old one was great too though). And this card! Trust you to come up with a polka dotted flower--it is SO cute! Love your combination of these two challenges, especially the colors--still hope I can try this one!

Love the new blog, I am afraid to change mine I might mess everything all up and lose it all. I like the banner you made, I notice the large scallop I should be getting one in the mail today. So I was happy to see that you made something with that.
Love your CAS but fancy card. Love the button flower. Have a great week Lisa

Jill said...

Cool shabby flower, Lisa! I love it! And to me . . . it looks as if you've used the butterfly as the leaves for the flower. Maybe you didn't intend it that way, but it looks super clever and creative to me!

Lisa said...

Your new blog is just adorable!! Do you design these yourself, Lisa? If so, we need to talk! Maybe you can re-do mine for me!
I really love how you made your own fabric flower! And of course the polka dots :)

Lisa, your handmade fabric flower is amazing!! I need to look again (after I finish typing my comment!) at a close up of it. Looks like the kind of thing I need to try!! It's a beauty. And your clean design for this card balances those fun and bright colors perfectly!
