You Make Me Smile


I haven't played with the Lawnscaping challenges for a while now, not sure why.  But it's a sketch and I have to say that I do enjoy sketches as well as color challenges (as long as there are not too many colours).

Here is the card I managed to make  a short while ago based on the sketch.

Paper: cardstock (PTI); Neenah Solar White; pp (The Girl's Paperie)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Copic markers; Victorian Velvet DI
Stamps: Lawn Fawn ( Hello Friend ; Blissful Botanicals)
Other: Pearls; Scalloped edge punch; Dimensional squares


I realised after completing my card and taking a photo of it that you cannot really see the scalloped strip 2/3rds down on the card!

The kraft panel is popped up after being inked on the edges with some distress ink. After adhering the little flowers I added a tiny pearl to each centre.

And seeing as this is a girlie card which could be sent to a special girl in one's life, one that makes you smile, I will be entering this into the current Simon Says Stamp challenge which has the theme of Mother's Day / Special Girl.  I hope you can join in the fun!

Thank you for popping by!  Have a totally wonderful day!

Gorgeous card and combo indeed Brenda!
It's girly but elegant and modern ;-)
Love it!!

and I also love and treasure your long comment on my blog! Feel free to email me if you need help. I have been thinking about you "stuck with your pictures" and stack of papers...maybe keeping a base color would help...

don't hesitate okay? ;-)
