Spring is on the way ...

Gorgeous photo from The Shabby Tea Room (with the added challenge of handmade flowers).

Interesting sketch from Waltzingmouse.

Not entirely sure about the interpretation.  I bought the Authentique: Uncommon papers alittle while ago so thought this would be the perfect challenge to break open the pad.  I think it is abit busy and possibly over-blinged (if that is a word) it, ie went too far to try and retrieve it.  Oh well, another lesson learnt. 

What you need
Cardstock - PTI Kraft, white;  Bazzill Basics dark brown
Patterned Paper - Authentique Uncommon;  SU DSP 6 x 6 Collection
Stamps - WMS Nutcracker Sweet,  Fancy Phrases,  Large Doily, Dainty Doillies 2
Ink - SU Pear Pizzazz, Real Red;  Memento Tangelo;  PTI Fresh Snow
Die - PTI Beautiful Blooms
Doily - Martha Stewart
Butterfly - Jenny Bowlin
Brad - Pebbles
Gems - Kaisercraft
Other - Tissue paper,  cork


  1. I really love the papers you chose - I think they fit the colour inspiration perfectly! Very pretty handmade flowers too :)

  2. OOoo, good one! I really like how you are able to combine so many challenges in one card--I can't seem to do that! I love the colors and papers you used, and that large doily is awesome! I didn't know MS made doilies (or is that a punch?). Anyhow, looks great!

  3. Very beautiful, love the "homey" look of this card! Thanks so much for playing with the Mischief Makers this week! xxx

  5. I think it's beautiful, Cassandra! I especially love how you incorporated the color scheme, and the way you combined the doily with that lovely flower!

  6. I love the cluster of embellishments you've used! So pretty! Thanks for sharing your creation with us this week at Waltzingmouse Sketches!
