It's a Wonderful World!

Hello all! I have a card to share this evening for two challenges. First up is The Paper Players where my sweet friend LeAnne has given us the task to create a CAS card with our sentiment as the focal point. I knew I had the perfect stamp for this challenge! To get the inspiration for my design, I turned to Retro Sketches where another of my sweet friends Tracey has the sketch based on one of her previous cards.

See what I mean about the perfect sentiment!


I die cut a white panel with my PPP Stitched Borders 1 die then added the pretty MME butterfly paper to it. After stamping and die cutting my sentiment, I added it to a punched scallop circle. This was added to the card with foam squares. The sketch shows a rectangle, but I switched it up a little to work with my sentiment better. Hope they don't kick me out for that and for putting my ribbon tails in the wrong place LOL!! To finish things off I added a trio of pearls and some ribbon tails made from PPP Chevron Twill Ribbon (Champagne).





Thanks for visiting. Be sure to stop back by tomorrow for the Precious Remembrance Shop New Release blog hop. Two new stamps sets will be given away!! ~Lisa

This is so fantastic. I love it. Every time I see that stamp in use, it makes me think of my wedding, where that was our first dance song. Love the corner of patterned paper and the bits of ribbon and all the stitching on this card.

Kelly Griglione said...

Oh I love your patterned paper peeking out from under the card, instead of on top of it. Great way to switch things up! Super-cute card : )

Jinny Newlin said...

Oooo! I just love that sentiment to bits, and your curved corner mimics the sentiment panel's curve perfectly!
