Thanks

I found a most intriguing sketch over at Cardabilities:



With this kind of elegant design, my mind went right to Florentine.


Banners and clusters of followers and gems - what could be better?  I used the Art Philosophy cartridge to cut the card base, banners, flowers and leaves.  Those are Mocha Gems (my all-time favorite) hidden amongst the flowers and on the banner.The light yellow flower in the middle is from the Bouquet Assortment.

I know it's a busy time of the year, but take a few minutes to make something pretty today.  It's good for your soul!

Wow, that is a great interpretation of a lovely sketch. This one deserves to be framed or at least left out on an easel to be admired. :)

I love your take on this sketch. When I saw the sketch, I had to really think about what to do - it just seemed to come so naturally to you. What a simply beautiful card! Do leave it out to be admired - it deserves some extra time in the spotlight!

Wow Brenda! What a gorgeous card! I agree with Casandra....this one (like many others you create)should be displayed or framed. You sure are creative. I get lots of inspiration from your beautiful work.
