I used the sketch over at Page Plans this week for this card. I barely got it done for this week but I am completely in love with how it turned out. I haven't had the Fresh Cuts set very long and I really wanted to use it for this sketch. After much fiddling, this is what I came up with. I also ordered a stamp-a-ma-jig with this order. I can't believe I stamped for so long without this. It was always one of those "things" that I thought was unnecessary and just a shameless ploy to get you to spend money on a tool you didn't need. Boy was I wrong!! I love it!! I love knowing exactly where my image will be and not eyeballing it anymore!!
I used the Le Jardin paper and stamped the Thank You sentiment in So Saffron on the middle panel - love the subtlety of it. The flower is a big MM flower I had and I stamped the main image from the set in Bashful Blue as well as the little flowers. Faux stitching, pearls and some retired organdy ribbon finish it off. I don't own the pretties kit but I think I'm going to order it and some taffeta ribbon and demo this card at my upcoming workshop. I think taffeta ribbon will look soooo good on this card!
Thanks for stopping by!! Hope your Saturday was full of beauty!!
