I decided to just start creating so I cleaned off my desk and used the scraps that were already sitting here and this is what I came up with.  I feel like it’s missing something but I am afraid that if I try adding something I will overdo it.  I don’t normally make cards with much white space but I’m going to leave this one.

Products used: Reminisce paper, Making Memories paper, Basic Grey bling it rhinestones, Making Memories ribbon charm, CTMH organdy ribbon.

Challenges:
365 Cards Super Sketchy Sunday – sketch (rotated)
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge – fancy corners

I rearranged the pearls for this card by cutting the flourishes off one flower and adding them to the other giving me a bunch of flourishes for the right corner and the lone flower on the left.

Products used: CTMH Tickled Pink paper, CTMH cardstock (White Daisy, Crystal Blue, & Sweet Leaf), unknown grosgrain ribbon, DCWV vellum quote from the Love & Friendship stack, and Basic Grey Opaline half pearls.

Challenge:
Sketch and Stash Challenge #16 – sketch & these new BG pearls have become a new addition to my stash

This is my third post for the day so be sure to scroll down.  The kids decided they would rather play with friends than watch a movie with Mom and Dad so that meant more play time for me!  I am in love with these half pearls by Basic Grey and I was so excited today when I realized that they perfectly match my CTMH Tickled Pink paper!  (which I’m trying to use up if you haven’t noticed.)  The vellum quote is from a DCWV vellum quote stack.

Challenges:
Stamp With Fun Challenge 18 – sketch

Oh, I just love the bright colors of this fruity paper!  It’s by Die Cuts With a View.  The cardstock is Watermelon & Sweet Leaf by CTMH.  Bling is Basic  Grey Bling It.  This bling is my favorite new thing and I love all the designs but I will admit they are definately tricky to work with.  The strawberries seeds on this one are all individual pieces.  In the end I’d say it’s worth the finished look!
