Card Recognition

life. laugh. love



Today's card was inspired by the current Retro Sketches and using some of the Artful Delight March kit.  I had one of those days yesterday and I think this motto is perfect for my outlook on today.  Plus I'm still shy a few book themed cards and my deadline is vastly approaching.


And this attempt #1 for my birthday card commission, don't think this meets what she's looking for, but that's what I was inspired to make.  

Materials: PTI All Booked Up, PTI Mat Stack 4 sentiment, My Mind's Eye Follow Your Heart, doily, PTI kraft, rustic cream and dark chocolate card stock, PTI double sided banner, PTI 1 3/4th inch limitless layers die, EK Success 1 3/4th inch circle punch, Studio Calico butterfly stickers, Recollections Rhinestones, Tim Holtz vintage photo ink

Birthday Card: WPlus9 A Pocket Full, PTI Vintage Picnic, PTI Fillable Frames #4, PTI kraft card stock, water color pencils, Versfine black ink, Martha Stewart score pal

Love the neutral tones on your book-themed card--the doily highlights the image so beautifully! And I love the frame you layered over the pocket on the second card and the subtle scored lines!

I completely adore that first one. The colors, the balance, the beauty.... The second is fun- and I can see a bit of 'earthy'! :)
