FTL 100th Sketch Celebration


This layout was too fun to resist, and I can see myself using it many times again.  Just love the scallops and  with it being FTL's 100th sketch, I just had to play along :)

Thoughts and Prayers, was my set of choice.  Just love the two images in this set!!  It is definitely one of my favorite SU sets.  I opted to go with the flowered vine image and used Mellow Moss and Pretty in Pink, one of my all time favorite go to colour combinations.  I was very saddened to see Mellow Moss retiring so I made sure I ordered enough to keep me going for a long time LOL!   Kraft was a fabulous match with these colours and some half pearls added just the right touch to the flowers.  Just noticed I love a pearl center to one of my flowers somewhere along the way to the picture taking!  It has been fixed and when I get a chance I'll retake the photo.

Have a fabulous day and thanks for popping in today :D

This card is absolutely gorgeous! I'm on the card team at our church and was just asked if I could make more sympathy cards as, unfortunately for the need, we are running low. This is perfect and hope you don't mind if I case it for my church.

Thanks for sharing with us!
