I just had to jump right on this new sketch! Jennie Harper does such a great job of keeping us challenged over at Stamp TV. I rarely make square cards, mostly because I hate giving the PO double postage because of the shape. I am totally not a cheapo, but if it weighs next to nothing, what the heck?
We have a BIG snowstorm coming tomorrow, so I am thinking spring as much as I can. I am so sick of this weather!
My card base is a purple textured card stock which I sanded on the edges. I used 2 different sizes of square punches and alternated pattern and color to do my 3-3-3 pattern. The embroidered flowers are Mary Engelbreit. I used a chipboard frame and centered a sentiment and random hearts from Nina Brackett's newest sets, Heartily Yours and Heartily Yours Additions, which were stamped in chalk ink. I stamped a pattern on some MS butterfly punches. Pearls, gems, and stitched ribbon are my embellishments. I decided to use a simple Happy Anniversary stamp on a white decorated panel on the inside.
Thanks for dropping in for a visit, and I will try to make my postings a little closer together. My mojo has been missing. I think it climbed into an envelope and card I sent to a friend for her birthday! She needs to send it back.
