Crafty Creation

As I was blurfing this morning, I came across a post at Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps about their sponsorship this week of challenges at the deconstructed sketch, Do You Stack Up and For Your Inspiration. While I follow Jen and her deconstruction, I wasn't aware of the other two challenges. (Ok, I do sometimes live under a rock....lol)

Well, moral of the story, I decided to combine the three challenges and created this card!



It was pretty easy to combine them; DS29 needed a bow of some sort and that played into the ribbon/something to tie aspect at DYSU48, and FYI19 gave me the color inspiration!

The plum base was from Recollections, the kraft from a*muse, and the DP from Bo Bunny. The ribbon I have had forever and the pearls were from Michael's and buttons from CTMH. The main frame is stamped with CTMH Cocoa on a base I chalked to give a reflective scene. The sentiment is from the same set!

What do you think? My SIL says that it is very girly for me!! I hope you will let me know what you think....


Thanks for stopping by!
HUGGZ,
April

This is really eye-catching, April. Love the purple and green together, and the scene is just so serene -- the kind of scene I want to step right into. I don't know, it doesn't strike me as terribly girly, but it sure is beautiful!

Very nicely done, April - a little winter, a little spring - a card for all seasons! :)

Ohhhh April, this color combo is beautiful. Love the purple and the floral swirled DP. The sentiment is so pretty and the simplistic design of the trees accents, not detracts, from the other elements! Nicely done!
