wishing you well...

Hello... wow... three posts in three days!!  Had another crafty afternoon and got two more cards made.  One I will be sharing later in the week and the other I'm sharing right now.  This one is another card for this month's Reverse Confetti color challenge, as well as Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge:  Tag It and CAS(E) this Sketch.


For this little card I used the RC stamp set Petals 'n Posies and the matching dies, as well as the small tag from the RC Tag Me die set.  I stamped the two little flowers using pink and yellow inks, layered them and then added a grey sequin to the center.  The little star shape was stamped using grey, pink and yellow inks and then clear sequins added.  Layered up the tag, the sentiment strip and the flower, added the twine bow and I was done.  Initially I was going to use a white card base, but decided to put the piece on a grey card base and I just love how it made the pale colors pop.  Followed the CTS layout to a "T", but that's okay... I really liked the sketch the way it was and didn't want to change a thing!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; SU! Smoky Slate; Stamps & Dies:  Reverse Confetti; Inks:  Stampin Up! Smoky Slate, So Saffron, Pink Pirouette; Baker's Twine:  Impress & The Twinery; Sequins:  Ellen Hutson & Pretty Pink Posh

Hello Rosie,
Yes it is difficult to keep up with your makes,I had to go back and see what I had missed....The cards are just gorgeous, you are very consistent....Do you ever have a creative block??? All the time I have known you I cannot recall one, it is quite depressing.
Great work my friend.
Smiles:)
