how beautiful...


Happy March 1st!  Today is a busy day here on the blog.  This is my first of 3 posts.  They are all pretty fun so please stay tuned.

Right now I have a card for this week's sketch over at Reverse Confetti....

I used So Stripey to make up the striped paper and then I used a sentiment from Paper Crane.

For the horizontal  elements in the background, I used 2 strips of vellum.   Using small dots of tomboy, I added in some clear sequins.   And I had to try this new thread thing.  I am seeing it everywhere.  It's a little hard for my CAS mind....but I did it.  :)  And I kinda like it.   What do you think?

Here is this week's sketch...


Stop over to the Reverse Confetti blog to see what the other girls have made up for today!  Thanks for stopping in!  Come back in 2 hours!  :)
