PTI anniversary sketch challenge, take 2.

I couldn't help sneaking in one more card for today... the sketch (above) is so dainty and sweet, it begged for some frilly girlishness...

I started out with a berry sorbet card base (and by the way, this was my first order EVAH for PTI colored cardstock - love them, and would order more if it wasn't so costly for International orders!), and adhered a mat of "dearest jane" patterned paper.  The fancy flourishes were cut out of spring moss paper and stamped with versamark ink.  The new oval dies created the perfect backdrop for a subtle sihouette (from "simply jane".)  I brought in a lighter pink with the flowers (using an old SU! punch) and prettied them up with pearl centers.

Thanks for looking!


  1. So pretty. Love how you pulled all these elements together!

  2. love what you've done with both sketches!!

  3. This is just so pretty. Now I see why everyone wanted the flourishes dies.

  4. Hi!!

    I do just use the lens that came with my camera - I won't let myself buy a new one until I can use the thing on manual settings!! So I think it's the 18-55mm? I just zoom in as far as I can while making sure at least most of the card is in my shot, so I get some decent aperture.

    Hope that helps!!

  5. I lov you take on the sketch. That silhouette is so pretty and that text background is perfect. :)
