J'adore

Good Monday evening... hope your week is off to a good start! Mine is.... I finished a card! Waltzingmouse sketch challenge and the CR84FN61 colors..whoo hoo... I thought this was a wonderful combination.  The Waltzingmouse sketch is Mona's and she is also the "boss" of the CR84FN challenges!!


The CR84FN colors are aqua, tan, and cream. I layered baja breeze onto a crumbcake base. The next layer adds a topper of crumbcake stamped with the dots from WMS Offbeat Backgrounds above a WMS Heirloom pattern stamped in crumbcake. Added some stitching on both ends. My crumbcake pad is a new one from SU... do any of you use SU colors? These new pads are very different.... lightly touch to get your pattern! The center is a crocheted edge paper circle that I bought from pixiepetals on Etsy a couple years ago (hoarding), layered with an image from WMS Vintage Circles small in baja breeze. On top I stamped the smallest bloom from WMS Roses in Bloom twice, color with copics, cut out, and popped a smaller cut portion on top for dimension. I also rolled the ends of the flowers with fingers for a little more dimension. Added the sentiment and some score lines.... the left lower corner looked empty! Link to Waltzingmouse Stamps.

The colors...

The sketch...













Thanks for stopping by!! Love when you do and appreciate all the sweet words!!

Great card! Love the use of the sketch and colours. Your flower is fabulous. I've heard the new pads are great - easy, light touch for coverage and a great image when stamped.

Beautiful card. Love the colour combo and the layout. Must have been hard to use that gorgeous crocheted edge circle, but it is perfectly placed.

Love it! I think the crochet edge is so pretty and you've used my favourite circle stamp from WMS. I like the way the lines lead to the sentiment too. Great card! Thanks so much for playing along with CR84FN!

PS Not tried the new SU pads yet - but love their colours!
