Dare to be Fabulous

The card I have to share today is based on this sketch from the Go To Sketches magazine.

I needed to make a card based on a sketch for a Grad class I was in...yes, I found a way to incorporate cards into a class called "Supervising Field Experience Students"!  That was the only way I could make time for some crafting during the last 2 weeks!  Anyway, I love this sketch and this is what I came up with...

I am headed out to do a little shopping with my Sister-in-law today...we are hitting all the crafty stores in the area, Michael's, JoAnn's, & Archiver's!  Hope you have a fantastic Monday!

~Anika

Supplies: (All Papertrey Ink unless noted)
Cardstock: Kraft, Sweet Blush, Pretty Pastels Designer Paper, Flowers are cut from Basic Grey's Kioshi paper
Stamps: Big & Bold Wishes
Ink: Berry Sorbet, Tea Dye Duo
Misc: New Leaf Buttons and some others from my collection, Beautiful Blooms II #3 Die Collection (small), Rhinestones by Kaiser in Green

I think the favorite part is the flowers over the fabulous buttons!! I wish I had the button on the left for a button ring!!

Pat said...

That's thinking outside the box. Wish I had been that creative when I was in grad school. Love the pretty, soft colors you have chosen for your card. Enjoy your "play" time.
