IBSIC #14 ~ Sketch Challenge

Hello My Friends,

Upon my return from a trip to San Francisco, I found out that my card (the one with the sewing machine) had won!  I want to thank the ladies over at  Freshly Made Sketches for choosing my card.

Today is my last day of vacation, and I head back to work tomorrow, but I couldn't resist this week's sketch over at Inspired by Stamping Sketch Challenge #14 , so of course, I had to make a card!


And here is my card: 

The card base is crumb cake (my favorite!), and I added some retired SU designer paper called Bella Rosa.  I just opened this pack today and didn't realize all the pretty paper it has!  I used the Circle and the Fancy Tags Spellbinders.  I cut 2 pieces and layered the white on top of the teal color so it can stand out a little.  My sentiment is from SU stamp set called Because I care (retired).  I added some pretty teal flowers using SU Boho Blossoms punch and added some tiny peals from SU.  Not sure if you can see it, but I also added 2 rhinestones on each side of the card.  The little red flower and the pretty lace are from my stash.
Thanks for looking!

  3. Martha, congrats on your win: a badge for your blog, hooray! :) What a nice surprise after your trip.

    I love this garland of blue flowers - I may have to incorporate that idea into one of my creations some time. It looks really pretty! And yes, that Bella paper is one of my all time faves - nice stuff, isn't it?
