Violet Birthday Make


One of my SIL's will be celebrating her birthday next week, so I used this week's Tuesday Morning Sketch #391 to make her a card. I pulled out a long-neglected paper pad from Kaisercraft called Violet Crush, and used all the papers for this card. I added some GinaK wild orchid cardstock for the scalloped circle and larger flowers. The sentiment is by SNSS, and the flowers were done with 2 different SU! punches. The pink border was done with a SU! scalloped edge border punch, and it's too bad that the camera didn't pink up the silver dots in that piece of dsp because they're much prettier IRL. I added some lavender gemstones to the flower centers and randomly on the sentiment panel. This sketch is a great one to use up those random pieces of dsp that are taking up so much space!


Thanks for checking in today, it's always nice to have you :) Go have yourself a wonderful day - whatever your plans happen to be.

Wow! This is a stunning card Carol! I love the sketch and I am totally in love with this card. The papers you used are beautiful, especially that pink one with the silver dots, and yes, I can see the silver dots, but I can imagine it is more beautiful in person! Love the flowers and I love how you did the sentiment. Just gorgeous! Hugs, Brenda
