Special Moments

Monday, March 12, 2012


I made this card for a very special lady! And I had plenty of inspiration from several of my favorite sources! I fell in love with the color inspiration from this week's color challenge at  CR84FN:



 I fell in love with the sketch from The Cat's Pajama's:


 And the stamp sets and inks from Paper Trey Ink!

The sketch was challenging trying to figure out the placement of the squares! But I did it!
The flowers are stamped with  Beautiful Blooms II and Frilly Flowers (PTI).  I stamped the larger flowers and cut them out. I added pearls to the centers. I adhered them with dimensionals so they would pop from the card.
The panel that the flowers and squares are on was cut at the bottom by one of the On the Edge dies from Tim Holtz-Sizzix called Ornate. I have had this die for a very long time, and I had forgotten about it! I love how how this orange panel turned out!
I hope my friend enjoys this card as much as I enjoyed making it!

Thanks for stopping by! I love reading your very kind words!
