A Prima Congrats


It was their special day. Guest after guest lined up to hug them and say congratulations and best wishes. They offered that this was just the beginning of the bright path that's filled with their hopes and dreams. Nobody quite mentioned that it would be a long, winding road or there would be bumps along the way, but they knew. They knew what they wanted and they were determined to get there...together.


Limelight Papercrafts has a new sketch challenge with a focus on flowers (primas or handmade!). One lucky winner will receive a package of Webster's Pages Bloomers! I don't often make cards with big ol' flowers on them so I really appreciated the challenge presented-I made a card that was different than my normal style yet a card that I still really like.

Hop on over to the blogs of Mandy, Lisa, JenMarie,  and Lynn -they have fantastic interpretations to share as well! Post YOUR creation on Mandy's blog before Monday, October 17th.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock: (Blue) Archer's Paper, (Cream) Georgia Pacific
Patterned Paper: (Olivia Collection) Basic Grey
Stamps: (Sophie's Sentiments) Lawn Fawn
Ink: (Chestnut Roan Chalk) Colorbox, (Walnut and Antique Linen Distress) Ranger
Embellishments: (Urban Cosmos Paper Flower) Prima, (Burlap String) May Arts, (Rhinestones) Michaels, (Altered Vintage Button)
Tools: (Labels 4 Nesties) Spellbinders

  10. I like the unusual layout of this sketch. The colours you chose are so pretty together and ace idea to use only two thirds of the flower.
