you're so sweet....

Hello everyone!   Happy Memorial Day to everyone here in the USA.  Hope you are enjoying a wonderful day with those you love and taking time to remember what Memorial Day is all about!

I  have a card today for three different challenges:  CR84FN, the Paper Players & Waltzingmouse.   And can I just say that these three challenges are probably my most favorite challenges?  I love the color combos that Mona comes up with week after week, the sketches at Waltzingmouse never fail to inspire and well... the Paper Players challenges are just darn fun!  So combining the three was a no-brain especially since this week at the Paper Players the challenge is anything goes!!   So.... here comes my card!


When I saw Edna's super sketch at WMS my thoughts immediately drifted to the WMS set Victorian Frippery and that lovely border stamp.   And so once again I decided to stamp it and then trim out the scalloped portion to make my scalloped border.  As I was doing this I had the brilliant thought that Claire needs to talk to Spellbinders or someone about creating a border die to match... wouldn't that be lovely??  Anyway... after much stamping, trimming and diecutting my card was finished.  But to be honest while I think it is a nice card, it is rather plain... sigh!   I almost took it apart this morning and remade it, but decided to just go with it anyway. 

One final thing... I got some exciting news yesterday.   I'm the featured stamper this week over at Splitcoaststampers!!  I can't tell you how fun it has been to go through the featured stamper gallery and take a look how others have intrepreted my cards!! 

Thanks for taking a peek...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI kraft & Vintage Cream; Ink:  PTI Vintage Cream, SU! Marina Mist & So Saffron; Stamps:  WMS:  Victorian Frippery, Very Vintage Labels 4 & Large Doily; Ribbon:  SU! So Saffron; pin:  Making Memories.

Oh WOW! Fantastic card, love the layout!!

Rosie what are you talking about! "rather plain" you are an expert on plain and I would not call this card plain! it is absolutely gorgeous, the turquoise is just the perfect colour against the Kraft you love to work with, and the lemon colour just is just enough.
Perhaps a visit to the opticians may help!!!!! please do not pull it apart.
Smiles:)
