You're Amazing...

Happy Saturday!  It's time for Retro Sketches challenge #5!  I am excited this week, because we are using a sketch of THIS card.  It's fun to see it in "sketch" form!  Here is my card for this week...

What about all this patterned paper?  I think I have used more patterned paper in the last few weeks than I have in several months!  I am loving all these new 6x6 pads!  It does all the matching and colors combos for me, I guess!  

As I am scheduling this post, I see March 31st is my friends Sue Ann's birthday!  I want to send a huge Happy Birthday to you SA!  I hope your day is amazing!  You always know how to make me smile and I am so lucky to have "met" you!  I'm going out with the girls tonight so you know I am going to have a Rita for you!! :) xoxoxo

Here is this weeks sketch...

Hope you can play along this week!  Thanks so much for coming by and have a great weekend!  :)


  1. How pretty Laurie! LOVE that you've used the flourishes on the corners of the design!!

  2. This is such a different (and gorgeous) look from you! I've been trying to resurrect my patterned paper lately, too. I love the gingham butterfly!

  3. What a gorgeous pairing of colors! That grey looks so delicate with the pink and blue and flowers. I love the antenna on the butterfly, too :)

  4. What a fabulous sketch...
    what a fabulous color combo...
    and what truly fabulous card!! :)
    And Sue Ann...
    well it just doesn't get any more fabulous than her! :)

  5. Assume sketch Laurie. I love the fresh bright colors against the gray and you know I love the fancy flourishes! Have a great time with the girls tonight!

  6. This is cute! I just love all of the pastel colors together.

  7. Both of your cards are amazing but this fresh new rendition is fabulous, love the patterned papers you chose.

  8. Love the choice of dark base colour - the layers on top really pop out. Gorgeous card Laurie.
