Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge

"To Catch a Thief" was the theme and I thought o flowers? did I come up with that? Well, we used to live across the street from a lady who planted nearly every flower imaginable. Her flowers would bloom from mid January thru mid November in all the colors of the rainbow! (which is quite a feat considering we lived in southern Pennsylvania) Travis wouldnt stop at picking those lovely dandelions in our yard, but would venture to Miss Sandys yard and pick tulips, daisys, hydrangeas, mums, and what ever else he could wrap his chubby little fingers around. We moved many years ago, but the memory of Travis stealing flowers is truly what inspiried me to make this card. And in honor of Sandy I had to make it pink!

So, as part of teh Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge is to layer. Many layers...So I have 10 on one card! I really enjoyed this challenge as it makes the card more of a work of art for the lucky person who gets it!

The recipe is as follows: cardstocks are all Su! in Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Mellow Moss, and Always Artichoke. Using the same colors in markers, I colored the stamp (from a big box store) and stamped it on Whisper white. French script was inked with Mellow Moss and stamped on MM cs for added texture.

I prefer Su! edges as they are much easier to use. However, I love the shapes of the Fiskars punches best for this more elegant card. Pink grosgrain ribbon, and a few buttons finish off this card beautifully! Perfect for Mothers Day which is right around the corner!

  1. This is so pretty! Love the green and pink together and the borders, great job with the challenge!

  2. Beautiful colors, beautiful composition - and I love your explanation!

  3. I think the best cards are the ones with lots of meaning, the ones you make with a special person in mind. I love the story behind this one, and its a beautiful card too. Love the colours.
