RS #47 ~ Such a Lovely Day!

Brrrrr it's cold!!! There should be some kind of law against 7 degrees, don'tcha think! But since there isn't I thought maybe a cheerful card with sweet little birds and a flower might make me think of warmer days ~ a girl can dream right! Take a peek...


I made this for the Retosketches challenge. I used a strip of MME paper along with stamped PTI mehndi medallions. I like the way they mimic the lacy bunting on the paper. My layered bloom consists of die cuts using PTI flower fusion, PTI beautiful blooms II and a MFT mini rolled rose. A few pearls to glam it up and I think it might have warmed me up just a little!


Have yourselves a delightful day. Hope you're staying toasty warm! ~Lisa

This is so pretty! I love the lacy medallion stamps and the 3D flower is so lovely. Especially with the little pearl in the center! Thanks for joining us at retro sketches.

And I agree with your sentiments about cold weather. It should be outlawed!

I love how that pale pink banner continues the curve of the medallion shape...it flows so perfectly those birds and shapes looked like they were part of the same patterned paper to me. Lovely creation!
