Pretty Lady

Pretty LadyIt’s getting late but I wanted to share a card I made using this month’s sketch challenge at Your Next Stamp.  This sketch was so much fun to use! With fall already here, I opted to use a fall color palette using the softer shades to make a more feminine card.

Picked Bouquet

Happy Easter!

Picked BouquetI hope you are having a wonderful holiday – I will be spending the day with my mom and a few other relatives.  Today will be busy with traveling, eating and catching up with relatives I haven’t seen for a while.
A few weeks ago I was fortunate enough to have won a challenge and the prize was images from A Day For Daisies. I’ve always been a bit intimidated by these images as I thought they’d be tough to colors. Wrong! I did some paper-piecing for the dress and the rest colored so easily. I remembered seeing on someone blog the addition of the green dots to simulate babies breath and leaves – can you just say LOVE IT! What a fabulous look and super, super easy!
