Happy

Hi there!  I know it's late for me on a Sunday, but it was a busy day and this is the first chance I had to pop in to share a card I made for a few challenges I like to do.  First, it's for the current challenge on Guylou's Inimitability blog (girly girly - use lace and pearls).  It is also for Sweet Sketch Wednesday #141, JUGS #124 (color challenge - teal, green, pink and yellow), Aud Sentiments Challenge (use the word Happy) and finally, Crafty Emma's Store Challenge (Spots and Dots).

Here is the SSW sketch:


Here is the JUGS Color Inspiration:


And here is my card:


I started with a card base of Papertrey Aqua Mist and layered with patterned papers from the Simple Stories 100 Days of Summer collection.  It's a little hard to see, but the background has a spotted pattern. I added squares punched from yellow dotted paper from the My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Two Sunshine 6x6 pad.  My image is Leah from Guylou's Inimitability.  She can found in Guylou's store here.  I printed her on Cryogen white and colored her with Copics.  I wove some pink gingham ribbon through some lace trim and added a triple loop bow and a yellow pearl.  My sentiment is from Paulette at Create With TLC.  It was shared as a freebie for the challenge on the Aud Sentiments blog.  I finished off my card with some Pink Liquid Pearl accents around the Spellbinders Scalloped Petite Oval frame.  

Thanks for stopping by! I always appreciate when you visit!  See you soon!

  2. On Wow, Carla! This card is sooo pretty! The colors are gorgeous together and, as always, your coloring is amazing! Love the pink ribbon threaded through the cotton lace. I can't get over how perfect your Liquid Pearls are. Not a smudge or even one glumpy dot. :) Hope you have a fab week!

  10. Carla, this is gorgeous. Makes me think of Spring (as if I am not already,lol) Love the papers and this is such a pretty image. LOVE the lace with the gingham woven through. Sorry I have been absent, MIL is failing fast this past week and it may only be a short time, so spending time there.
