Cards from the Weekend

Case Study #90


The delicacy of this card just made me drool.  The roses and pearls are just perfect with the simplicity of the patterned paper and sentiment.  Couldn't see anything I could improve on so decided to flip the design. Not sure fuchsias would have been quite as appealing upside down.  


What you need
Cardstock - PTI Rustic White; SU vanilla
Patterned paper - MME Miss Caroline Howdy Doody
Stamps - The Cat's Meow Celebrating You;  PTI Think Big Favourites

  5. Two wonderful cards, Cassandra! I love how you flipped the design on the first one to better fit the fuchsia blooms, and the pearls are just perfect. Your second card has such a fantastic masculine feel to it with the stripes, neutral colors, and understated bow. Wonderful job!
