Be Faithful....

Hey there!!  Hope your week is going well.  Can't believe that August is almost over, that my big kid goes back to school on Thursday and that he is now a 7th grader!!!  Yikes!!! Where did the time go???


 
Anywhoo... have a card for a couple of challenges:  ODBDSLC74 to use a doily on your project and  CR84FN37 to use turquoise, light blue and a neutral.   For my neutral I went with white.   The layout comes from the current Sketchbook Saturday sketch.   For my card I used the ODBD set "Faith".  I just love the large butterfly branch image that is in the set.  I thought it would work perfectly for the central panel of the sketch.   I also used the Brocade background stamp from ODBD to create the background.   Did a bit of distressing with my distressing tool on the patterned paper and the main panel.  The card was finished off with some butterflies punched from the patterned paper with my Martha Stewart butterfly punch.   I really like the crisp, clean look of the card.

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; SU! Tempting Turquoise; Tempting Turq. pp; Ink:  Tempting Turq., Memento Summer Sky; Stamps:  ODBD Faith & Brocade Background; MS butterfly punch; pearls; Wilton paper doily

Rosemary, LOVE that butterfly branch stamp and the background you created! BEAUTIFUL card! THX for playing with us at CR84FN!

Hello Rosie.
(Glad you liked my version of your card.)
Butterfly's and doilies, a lovely combination and so is the palette you chose;cool,crisp,clean and refreshing. Turquoise is one of my favourite colours. You have kept your hues on the cool side by adding the white emphasizes this effect.
Your BG stamp does look wonderful, and ties it altogether.
Smiles:)
