Best Wishes!!

WMS sketch challenge and CR84FN color challenge combined. Have been piddlin' a little with this over time and finally finished!! Yeah, yeah, that's in between running to granite showrooms and granite warehouses.... what a dang project!! Still have some upholstery work and laundry/BR floors and painting to do. Honestly, we want it done by the wedding and even with contracting most of it.... it's a project!!

Colors are pink, black, and gray.... fabulous colors!! The sketch... honestly... intimidated me a little {okay, a lot!!} WMS leaves the sketch basic so it can be interpreted lots of ways. I'm just so literal... I know-"get over it".

My card...


Stamped those gorgeous large WMS doilies in melon mambo on white, die cut circle nesties in gray and stamped the reverse dots from WMS in Versamark, adhered, and cut to fit. Added some black stitching, a crinoline flower {from Linda the funkiejunkie on etsy} and black rhinestone in the center. Sentiment is from WMS Fancy Phrases stamped on a WMS Bitty Banner, cut out and popped up.

Here's the colors and sketch....



















TGIF!! I know, this is my same old "mantra" but, busy goings on here and I look forward to a "later" morning on the weekend!! Thought I was stampin' tomorrow nite but, Ms. Maddie is performing at half-time and we will be there!! Now, DD said "Outback" is providing food as the highschool doesn't do a concession stand... really??? This could be interesting.... definitely not what I grew up with!!

Heavens to Betsy! This is amazing, Vickie! The doilies in those colors are so striking, and that flower is the icing on the cake! WOW!

Just wanted you to know how much I liked your card using those really pretty and bright doilies. I actually felt the same way about the sketch as you, I am always way too worried about trying to make my card as close to the sketch as possible. I am working on thinking outside of the box as they say. Your card is gorgeous, especially that pretty flower and little sentiment banner.
