PDCC52 & Got Sketch? Sketch 105

Tuesday, October 26, 2010

I have a pretty, little card, for you all, this morning.
I started this card by rounding the bottom corners of a piece of floral, patterned paper; adhering a strip of yellow, glitter, polka dot, patterned paper down its center; machine stitching white-threaded, zig-zag stitches between their connections; and adhering it to the Pink Pirouette, cardstock, card face, whose edges had been distressed with Moonlight White ink.
I, then, adhered a strip of orange, star, patterned paper, horizontally, across the top of the prepped, patterned papers, glittered the stars, and embellished its top edge with a length of ivory lace.
A length of sheer, pink ribbon was, then, wrapped, around the card face, below the glittered, star, patterned paper; thread through a silver, hardware frame, which was filled in with the stamped, in Pretty in Pink ink, on ivory cardstock, "to You from me" sentiment; and tied, in a dressy bow, to the left of the framed sentiment.
A couple of pearls and a Prima butterfly complete the look.
My inspiration, for this card, came from The Play Date Cafe's One Year Anniversary Challenge #52 (Happy Anniversary, ladies!  May there be many, many more to come!)...
and Got Sketch?'s Sketch 105.
Well, I've got a heap of things to get done, today; so, I'd better run dive in.  May your day be filled with happy surprises, graceful acceptances, and thankful thoughts.
