CTS #203 ~ Love!

Hello! Seems like forever since I've gotten inky and had a new card to share. I have to admit, I felt quite rusty too. What should have been a quick simple card turned into several sighs, a smack on the forehead (after getting something crooked that had an exceptionally strong adhesive) and then I swallowed my gum! All that being said, I like the way it finally turned out! This one is for Cas(e) This Sketch.


I used a Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Borders 3 die on some Authentique paper. That, along with the love die cut (Impression Obsession), was left over from my 12 Kits of Occasions Sweet Pea kit. The pretty rose is from Winnie & Walter. I popped on a trio of PPP Sweet Pea Mix Sequins and added Wink of Stella to the bloom.


Have yourself a wonderful weekend ~Lisa

This is brilliant Lisa - I had to look and look at that border to figure out which one it was... it's in disguise! I love the soft pink colors and the mix of floral and stripe - this is gorgeous!

Turned out beautifully after all that struggle, Lisa ... so worth it ... soft, pretty and deliciously shimmery! Hugs, Anita :)

Darnell said...

Aaah, your card turned out to be so lovely, Lisa, and such a pretty take on the sketch! When I saw the sketch all I could think of was a pregnant lady with a flower at her bosooms! I must be starting to have a leftward leaning of my head to see things sideways!! I hope you get the chance to get inky more often now so you don't feel rusty and you don't swallow any more gum!! Enjoy your Sunday! Hugs, Darnell
