Special People

Hi there!  It's Monday again and that means it's time for a new sketch over on the Mojo Monday blog!  This week's sketch was inspired by this card that I made when I was at Laurie's a few weeks back.  It's rare that I do the same layout more than once, but I really liked how the card turned out, especially the diagonal ribbon element, so I thought it would be fun to give it another go as this week's sketch.


This time around I was going for a shabby chic feel with a touch of elegance, something the recipient of this card does oh-so-well.  I had the hardest time photographing my finished card, though.  It looks so much "dirtier" around the edges in the photo than in real life.  It's a lot softer in person, with just a hint of aged edges and a whole lot more sparkle!  :)

 
I pulled out one of my favorite sets from 2010, Feel the Sun and paired it with the new Vintage Oval Frame  and coordinating Vintage Oval Die.  The patterned paper is from the Webster's Pages Wonderfall and Vintage Vogue collection, and I added some ivory cardstock embossed with the Kassie's Brocade cuttlebug folder, then inked with some mulled lavendar distress ink.  The ribbon is from May Arts and I added a couple open roses from Wild Orchid Crafts.  Then added some glitter around the Vintage Oval frame and on the roses, finishing off with some distressed edges and a few pearl accents from Pizzazz Aplenty.

Okay, that's all from me this fine Monday morning!  Be sure to hop over to the Verve Blog each day this week to see what the Divas have cooked up for our Triple Play Project Parade.
