Thought Of You Today

Good Morning!  The sun is (almost) shining, what a difference that makes, just sets the tone for the day.  YAY!

Today's card will be entered into the Challenges at; Papertrey Ink, SketchStamping Sensations, FlowersPenny Black* Love, Hearts or Flowers and Allsorts, Spots and/or Stripes.

*  I think I have been playing along at Penny Black wrong all these months/years--maybe not all the time, but probably enough.....I thought any type of stamping was eligible, but it should actually be the main focus.....oopsie.


I chose Melissa's Sketch:







I used the Papertrey Ink products; 
Designer Paper, In Bloom.
Mix & Mat Flourish die.
Flower Favorites, stamps and dies (cropped).
Daydreamer stamps and dies.
Happy For You stamp.
Dies R Us Butterfly #2 die (layered).





Inks in; Old Olive, Pink Pirouette, Rose Red, Tangerine Tango and Wild Wasabi.
Green Embossing Powder.
Vellum.
Rhinestones.
Foam Dots.


Spring is on its way!  (fingers crossed!)

Thanks for stopping by.

Enjoy~~

    1. And if I had a dollar for every time I typed lobe, instead of LOVE, I’d be rich!

  8. You have done it again I am not surprised that you used this stamp and die set, I have seen you use it before and remember you saying it was one of your favorites. If fact, it was some of those cards that made me buy my own stamp. You are a very inspiring card maker.

  10. Isn't that a lovely sketch, Donna - I am gonna pin it! LOL My sketches never turn out exactly as the ones guiding us, but close enough! In the meantime, YOUR amazing creation IS ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS! Love the take on the sketch, and your beautiful colors of pink lusciousness! Your use of vellum always wows me. It's just that unexpected element that makes things more elegant, no matter what your theme. I hear ya about the challenges. On occasion, I misunderstand a rule, or even forgot to check the rules, and it makes me feel so contrite after learning the extra work I put someone through. At least whoever visited your blog always had the joy of seeing beautiful artwork! xx

  13. You are inspiring me to pull out some of my PTI sets again. They have sadly been ignored for awhile and I love them. This is just beautiful, I really like the colors you have used. Just makes the flowers pop. That background die is really cool with the diagonal stripes, and then the vellum with the greeting is just the perfect final touch. LOVE this to pieces!!!!!
