Always On My Mind

Good morning!  Happy Wednesday!  Hope I didn't get you humming that song in the title all day! Have you had a good week so far?  We are having some nasty weather today - pouring rain, thunderstorms and high winds.  There were some tornado watches/warnings around AL earlier, but most of them have expired by now, I think.  Sure wish I didn't have to go out in the rain!  Anyway, before I do, I'm popping in to share a card I made for a few challenges I like to do when I can.

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Primrose Petals and the patterned papers are from the Kaisercraft Chanteuse collection.  My sweet image is Higher Window from MayzyArt.  I printed her on Make it Colour Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I cut out around the image with my Silhouette Cameo.  I also used the Cameo to cut out two heart borders, using a freebie cut file called Hearts Grow Border from Debbie here, and the heart doily from a free cut file called Layered Doily 26 shared by Monica here.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  A few Wild Orchid Crafts roses finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the image:

Thanks for stopping by!  I will be around to visit as soon as I get back home.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
MayzyArt Challenge #009 (romance)
Papertake Weekly (sketch #75 or any PTW sketch; I used #75 below)
Love To Create #50 (anything goes; must have sentiment)
The Squirrel and The Fox #36 (something new; I used my new Cameo and new cut files)
Loves Rubberstamps Challenge #37 (have a heart)
Color Throwdown #227 (Rose, Pink, Kraft, Green)

Here is PTW-75:

Have a great day and see you soon!

  3. Carla, this is a beautiful card. I love the image. O also love her gorgeous hair, your colored it perfect. I haven't received my cameo, should come today or tomorrow. I am so scared I won't know what to do with it since I am computer challenged.

  4. Carla, your card is gorgeous. Stay safe! In WI we are getting 7-8 inches of snow right now. Luckily I have the day off, but don't look forward to having to go out to snowblow and shovel when it stops.

  5. So whimsy! I love the image with the papers and embellies you chose! HUGS

  6. Beautiful as always Carla!!
    Stay safe!!

  7. Ooh, beautiful, Carla. I love that heart doily and your pretty image.
    Unfortunately, I am one of the ones that had a tornado warning at 3:00 a.m. this morning. It's scary enough without it happening in the night (dark) hours. It's o.k., though, but has started raining again. Ugh! The dark, dreary, dank, depressing weather continues.

  8. What a beautiful image, which looks gorgeous with your pretty details. X

  9. This is so pretty Carla! I love the romantic feel to it and the gorgeous colours :)
