Tuesday Morning Sketches #214

Good Morning.  It's Tuesday and usually I'm pretty excited about today and I am but I'm sad too because the holiday weekend was fabulous for me.  I crafted the entire weekend.  I didn't make much headway on the baby blanket, but I made several projects to share with you this month so that's a good thing.

It's is Tuesday which means their is a new sketch up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and this one was created by Laura.  I did omit an element from her original sketch - ooops!  This week's sponsor is Floppy Latte digital designs.  My team created their cards using the images Floppy Latte provided so I took the opportunity to play with my stuff.  Here's what I created....

I am so thrilled with this card!  You all know how much I love flowers and I love making them, too.  I guess I can share this since it never happened.  I applied and was accepted to the McGill Punches design team and then it never happened.  The person who was in-charge stepped down and I never heard from the person that took over.  Oh well.  Creativity goes on.  I created this flower using Spellbinders Foliage Shapeabilities.  Yep, even the flower was created with what's intended to be a leaf.  I cut out the leaves, ahem, petals out of Elegant Eggplant card stock and then embossed 4 petals with Fancy Florals embossing folder and the other 4 petals with Baby's Breath embossing folder.  I inked them a bit to give a bit of richness and depth.  I couldn't find an interested button or brad to go in the center but I found these faux brads in one of the drawers and used it.  Then I embossed a vanilla panel with Vines embossing folder by Paper Studio.

I think it turned out absolutely gorgeous!  I hope you like it, too.

I'm going to link it this one to The Kraft Journal's CAS challenge.  I think it fits.  If not, that's OK, too.  See you over at TMS.

I love that lacy ribbon! Totally gorgeous flower - leaf- flower. Love that you stretched it :)
What a weird experience with McGill - awfully unprofessional. Not to mention disappointing!
