CAS Mother's Day Card Round One


 Trusting you all had a fabulous Easter weekend. Ours was busy, but very, very enjoyable. Always fun to spend time with family and I am so blessed to have such amazing in-laws :) 

This FTL sketch intrigued me so I decided to give it a try.  Think my tank was low after our busy weekend as I had a tough time with it...or maybe I just don't have enough DP options to make it work LOL!  Now that's an excuse to go paper shopping if I ever had one!

Not totally satisfied with the end result, so the competitive side of me says I may just have to give it a second go round to see if I can improve on it.

Thanks for the visit :)

Paper: Pretty in Pink, So Saffron, Going Grey

I vote you should do another because this is so cute and another would be cuteX2. What a super sketch, love the shape of the panels - really draws the eye to your flower. The little bead on the punched side are wonderful. This is a perfect card for a Punchkateer! Hugz.

I think it looks fabulous Marisa...and if the price to pay for having such a splendid time at Easter is a reason to delve more into card making...well I'm there! The colors are perfectly sweet and you rocked that sketch! I'm sure that any mother would really appreciate this hand made beauty... My address is.... :)

This is beautiful!!! I ALMOST bought that PTI flower die, but then I took it out of my cart. I'm sad now bc it looks so great on your card!
Love the dots on your border on the right hand side!!

Betty Wright said...

Just beautiful, Marisa! Wonderful colors and I just love the touches of sparkle! Thanks for the reminder to use my PTI flower die. I always forget this one. I love the way you used the circle and scalloped circle dies, too. I just go the scalloped grands at Mikes so looking for ways to use some mega circles! Anyway, love the card!
