love you...

Hello... happy Friday!  I know my boys are happy it is Friday... that means the weekend and that they get to play Xbox games, lol!  Have another card to share.  This one is for the current AEI{heart}U challenge:  CAS and uses the current sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch.


I followed the sketch very, very closely.  I die cut the main panel and all the fishtail banners using the AE Dotted Die set.  The papers I used are from the My Mind's Eye Jubilee "Mint Julip" 6x6 pad.  To soften the pattern on the largest banner I die cut some vellum for an over lay.  After adhering the largest banner I added the twine and the rest of the banners.  That part was a bit fiddly, but I think it turned out okay.  Finished off the card with the sentiment from the AE set "Oh Happy Day" and the little hearts from the AE set "Love Notes".  Everything was mounted on a pale aqua card base.  If you want to see an outstanding take on the sketch, please click over to Petra's blog.  Her card is absolutely AMAZING!!

Thanks for stopping by...

I thought this sketch was tricky, but you really nailed it, Rosemary! I love the pretty papers you chose for your banners and still kept your card CAS! Adding vellum to the large banner was genius! Love your sentiment, too!

Goodness, Rosemary, I've missed so much during my mostly MIA spell from blogland ... and have so enjoyed browsing through all your posts and catching up! I particularly loved your your stamped 'kindness' card and those adorable mini bags you made for PRS! Oh, and this too ... such pretty DP for the banners ... love that vellum overlay! Anita :)
