Wonderful Mother ...

Hello friends.  Today's sketch comes compliments of The Shabby Tea Room.  Such talent is worth visiting and I hope that you can stop by!  For this project I used scraps of various Designer Series Papers with colors that coordinated well.  The paper in the middle is at least three years old and I'm sure it's happy to have finally found a home on a card!  You can see that I pulled out shades of yellow with So Saffron, greens with Certainly Celery, and blues with Taken with Teal.  The chipboard frame is also covered in DSP - this time from our Holiday Lounge collection.  I love how the Taken with Teal adds a splash of color while the lace keeps the view soft.

Of course a "winged friend" from my Butterfly Punch just had to land in the right spot.  The half pearls are mounted with Crystal Effects and are from our Pretties Kit.  The heartfelt words are from Well Scripted and express our thoughts in a beautiful font.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful evening and if you have a moment I'd love to hear from you!

  5. Joanne...I hope you'll let me know if you get this comment...I know this this is LAST week's card and am not sure if you would be checking for new comments on it. You left a sweet comment about my last TSTR card and the flowers I made. One flower is made like the one you put on your bicycle card (very pretty, by the way!). I have made 2 tutorials on YouTube: Vintage Seam Binding Rose Tutorial,and Vintage Seam Binding Flower Tutorial (the second one would be like the one you have already made). Wanted to let you know in case you wanted to check them out. I've enjoyed my little visit here at your beautiful blog and will have to come back more often!!
