Fashion Fades, Style Remains

Hello!  Can't believe it's already Sunday evening!  It's been a busy weekend for us. DH had a big golf tournament this weekend and I spent most of today watching the final match. Sadly, he missed winning the whole championship by one stroke after nearly 80 holes of play, but it was an exciting match today and fun to be there to watch.  When I wasn't at the golf course, I managed to get a card done for the Jackson Digital Expressions Sketch Challenge #1 (use sketch and pastel colors).

Here is the sketch:


Here is my card:


I started with a card base of GKD Innocent Pink and layered with pastel patterned papers from the Authentique Delightful 6x6 pad.  My image is Sharp Girl  from Robert Jackson.  It is available in Robert's store here.  I printed her on Cryogen White and colored her with  Copic markers.  I added some Stickles to her hat, shoes, handbag and jacket for some sparkle.  The sentiment is from Paulette at Create With TLC.  Some Papertrey Spring Moss ribbon and a few yellow pearls from my stash finished my card.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great rest of the evening and hope to see you again soon!

  2. WOW...Carla, this is gorgeous! I love those colors and the image is great...perfect sentiment, too! Too bad about the golf tourny...my hubby is playing in 2 weeks with our daughter near Charleston, SC in a charity tourny.

  3. Oh, she is such a stylish lady and the card is awesome!

    Sorry about your hubby..that had to be a heartbreaker.

    Hubby and I were in your part of the South today. We were visiting his sis in Indian Springs Village. It was a beautiful day there...I think better than it was at my house.

  5. Carla, I am sorry about hubby and the tournament. I would rather lose by 10 strokes than one...bummer. On the bright side, you definitely came up with a winner for this Sketch Challenge. OMGosh!! This card is so classy and elegant!

    We were delighted to see your design, no doubt it will join your previous card on our Hall of Fame Page! Thanks for playing with Jackson's Digital Expressions.
