2S4Y ~ Laura's Sketch 53


Hi Everyone!
Hope everyone is having a wonderful Memorial Day. We are so thankful for all the men and women who fought and who fight for our freedom.
Here's a card I just finished. I used the 2S4Y Sketch. I had a lot of fun :). I cut out the butterfly images and put Crackle Accents on them. I used a Webster's Pages crochet piece under the Prima flower (from my friend Tracy :)). I added some Shimmerz to the flower. The lace under the flower and butterflies is from my scrappy friend, Rose. Added some pearls, pearl trim, fiber, ivory statin ribbon, and a charm that says "Love."
Hope you like it :). Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
*hugs* and Much aloha~!

Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #115


Hi Everyone!
Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend so far!
Here's a card I just finished...Wet embossed the lacey trim, inked up with SU! inks and rubbed pearl alcohol ink over it...Used some rub-ons, added glossy accents to the birdie, flowers, and sentiment (which is also popped up with foam tape). Added some satin ribbon and fused pearl trim and some pearls. (Note: Brown DP is just for my photo shot.)
I think it came out okay ;p'.
Have a great day!

Pollycraft Monday Challenge - 45 Buttons and Butterflies


Hi Everyone!
Here's a card I made for Pollycraft Monday Challenge 45 - Buttons and Butterflies.
Initially, I wanted to make something cutsie...but this DP was calling to me to be used today {I heart these colors}, hehe. I glossy accented the big bloom, inked it up with Distress Ink, and added an antique-looking button. I added some cool fiber I got over the weekend along with two epoxy butterfly stickers and some BG alphas.
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you like it!

CCCB#5


Hi Everyone!
A quick card for the City Crafter Challenge Blog (check out their site!). I love Paris! I hope to visit there one day :). Took many years of French and just love the culture. J'adore Paris! I used some Making Memories Vintage Findings goodies from Friday (thanks Friday!) and used one of my handmade tulle flowers. I wet embossed two TH images on the tag and inked it up with distress inks.
Thanks for stopping by!
