Mon Amie........




I've made a card to enter into a couple of challenges today.  I've turned to Waltzingmouse stamps again, love these borders and the sentiments too. The first set, Picnic Patterns was used  to  stamp the background cross hatch pattern onto American Craft pink card.  Distressed edges were then lightly sponged and sewn onto some sponged white card.  Soft pink ribbon has been ruffled down the centre of the card. 
The sentiment and swirl were  stamped 3 times in Rangers tattered rose ink onto white card before cutting with a Spellbinders die.  While the sentiment was still in the die I sponged lightly with more tattered rose.  The same die cut the tan mat which I  cut through the centre so that it extends either end of the sentiment.
To complete the card I added the bow and a pink and lemon blossom.

This card is my entry to the following challenges:

Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #12 - go check this out there are always great entries.
Lollipop Ladies #2  - a sweet challenge with ruffles.
Lets Ink It Up #1 - anything goes with a touch of yellow.  OK I know this is a stretch but time is running out!!!!


Till next time.........

Sue I just adored all your cards and I so love visiting. Wish I had more time to comment on all of them, but they are all wonderfully gorgeous! I really loved this one too. Very unique and I love how the ribbon went up the middle, just loved the over design! Beautiful. Hope all is well and I loved your orchids as well, hope you can grow them next summer! I never knew you could cut them and place them in a vase like that, beautiful!
