City Crafter Challenge #93

Our hostess... Linda... at 
City Crafter Challenge Blog has a fun sketch for us to try this week...


When I saw this, my thoughts
immediately went to the beautiful papers that came out last year by Graphic 45 called Once Upon a Springtime... and I had a full 8x8 paper pad I hadn't even broken into yet. I had also just purchased lots of new colors of cardstock at a HUGE discount from Joann's. Lei Flower and Peach Core'dinations Canvas Texture matched the peachy patterns of OUAS perfectly.


Antique Linen Distress Ink 
was sponged on the paper edges, and I cut a Spellbinder's Floral Doily Motifs die for under my last piece of Ivory Shabby Chic Rose Trim from Frog Feathers.


 The pearls are from Queen
& Co and the Heart Trinket Pin is from Maya Road.


The ribbon is from American
Crafts Love Collection and my bow is May Arts Natural Burlap String.

Thanks for stopping by today!
Hugs!
Linda

Oooooo, now I may have to get that pad out again. When I purchased that pad I thought it would be difficult to work with, but the few cards I have made with it evolve quickly and easily. I love that ;)

Gorgeous card, my friend!
