love


What a fun & challenging sketch over at Card Patterns! Here's the thing though, I love a good challenge and there is nothing better than completing the task AND having fun...double bonus!

This card uses the
Chianti line by GCD Studio. Talk about rich and texturey papers....this is the first time I've used their stuff and LOVE it! I happened to find it over at M's...It's been awhile since I'd been in there and I was surprised at the variety of 12x12'ers they had...tons of American Crafts too...all the butterfly papers from yesterday was from M's too! The diecut is some Jenni Bowlin that I've been hoarding. The alpha is Thickers vinyl and the felt flower border embellie is something I bought last december from ScrapGal.

Ugh, our heatwave continues...I tell you, it makes me grouchy and sleepy.
