Je t'aime!!

Thursday at my house is WMS sketch time.... I know, I need to change it up-I've been early a couple times, right?

Honestly... this is the third card change in the last little bit... struggling with that lower right corner... not sure why... but, that's the truth, LOL!! Used a couple new WMS stamps...  Florentine Frippery (heart) and French Country (seems I'm twitterpated with this set!!) Colors are Julia's for this weeks SCS color challenge- whisper gray sand. Background images- bottom border stamped with SU gray, top stamped with SU crumbcake (stamped off but, not perfectly on purpose to get the gradient of color)- both images from WMS French Country. Heart image was stamped in SU gray and again stamped off but, not perfectly to get gradient image and layered on circle nesties. Added  lace border with lace from Wild Orchid Crafts and SU crumbcake seam binding. Sentiment stamped in gray on MFT flag and layered over another flag (Award Ribbon Die-namic). That's the scoop!!!

Karin's sketch..

















Thanks for stopping by!! Appreciate all the kind words!!

I just love that French Country background in neutral colors, so classy! The heart from Florentine Frippery goes along great with it! Claire is the best at making sets that all go together :) Beautiful embellishing, too!
