{Love You}

Well, this WAS going to be entered into DTGD12Mothermark's challenge, but I blew it when the card morphed away from its original self. It's still based on, and inspired by, her challenge, so I may enter it with a disclaimer. Hey, can't blame a gal for trying.

Here's my card:

I was very pleased with myself for getting all artsy-fartsy and playing with my Tim Holtz stash. I used one of his tags, clear-embossed the circle stamp from this set (sorry for the glare, it was under my desk lamp):

... covered it in a few Distress inks, then spritzed it with some Smooches Spray. It's all shiny and everything:

I cut the main strip of it out of the tag and used it as the lower part of the same Sketchbook Saturday sketch I used in the last post:

Here's the card again so I can remember what it looks like without scrolling ...

I took a few liberties with the top half of the sketch and used a few more of my paper roses. The sentiment was stamped with the Paper Smooches Alphadots set. The card base is my coveted Sage Shadow that I may have hoarded when it retired. (moment of silence) The paper at the top is the back of a piece of Core'dinations Beach card stock from The Heaplet. It was there and it was the right color, and now it's gone. I win.

Actually, I think I'm done with challenges, at least for an hour or so. It's been a crazy weekend. I thank you for stopping by!


  1. I always figure if it was inspired by the challenge (even if it veered off) enter anyway. It got you started, right? :) Love the shiny shimmery bits & those coffee rings - I need those, I think. Too fun.

  2. Haha! I love the way you write posts :) Totally cool, the card and the techniques!

  3. this is a VERY pretty color combination. And, of course, i love the flowers! Now this card I will have to CASE


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
