I tried to do something different and cover the edges with prima flowers , but it just didn't want to work with me. Looked really bad, so I decided to go more simple and stacked three different sizes of primas and a brad and put on one corner. Clean and Simple.
Speaking of Clean and Simple, this card was a struggle for me, as it was so much open space. But I really like how it came out. The sketch is from this weeks Papertake Weekly Challenge. And I loved it when I looked at it, Katharina's sketches always do rock.
I used a blank card, that was in my stash. I then went through my stash of scraps and found this lilac piece of card stock and punched the border with a Martha Stewart border punch. I new I wanted to use this piece of Papertrey Ink ribbon, but it wasn't enough, so I layered a wide piece of white ribbon with it. The flowers are Primas that were still new in the package, that I know I have had for at least 2 years! The sentiment is from Stampablities, I love the font, and that it is just so perfect for so many cards.
Ok now it should have been finished there. But I just couldn't stand the edge, even hubby said it seemed like it needed something on the edge. So I doodled just on the card base. It is done... then I just couldn't stand not coloring something and using it. I pulled out another Tilda (I know that is 4 in a row!) colored her and sat her on the ribbon. Ahhhh just felt better!
Well I know I promised some blog candy this week. I am putting it together and hope to post it on Friday or Saturday... keep an eye out! Oh and I will try and get some donkey photos up this weekend again. Hubby is home again today so that means more outside work, and less blog surfing again today! YUCK! Hope you all have a great Thursday and get to do more surfing than I do!
