Tuesday, March 8, 2011

Good evening - I found this beautiful patterned paper at Hobby Lobby and knew the paper could stand alone on a card. This week Clean and Simple Stamping blog had a simple sketch that I could use this paper on. You were suppose to use a die cut for the sentiment - my sentiment did start as a die cut but I did not like the shape so I did some trimming, rounded a corner or two and that is how my sentiment die cut turned out. I thought the pansies needed some beautiful lace, a bow and a touch of green to bring it all together. I plan on making a couple of these to go into my next Operation Write Home box.

Everyone have a wonderful evening - going to try and make a card tonight using purple (lavendar is a shade of purple right), orange and teal. Come back tomorrow to see if I accomplished it. It will be my third Christmas card for 2011 if it works out.

So pretty Barb! Love your take on the sketch.

I like this Barb. I sent some cards with stand alone paper and lace to OWH. It is nice to make some simple cards. I sewed my lace on but that is no big deal.

This is very pretty, Barb! You hit the jackpot with that paper! I like this sketch and have used it once already.
