Today I made a card using my new Love Lives Here stamp set and the coordinating dies. I also wanted to use some of the other things I just got in my most recent PTI order. This card is so unlike my normal style. I almost never use patterned paper or lace. This stamp set just seems to bring all things lacey and frilly to mind, so I brought out some things that in reality truly aren't me. The patterned papers I have had for some time now, always thought were pretty, but have rarely used. They are from Prima, the Sasha Paper collection and go really nicely with Ocean Tides cardstock which I used for my base card. I did a little zig-zag stitching and stamped a spiral notebook page with Background Basics Sheet Music and wrapped a little pink rick rack around it. The sentiment is stamped on a punched tag and the flowers were cut from a little sprig I have had in my craft room since I made my first wedding book project two years ago. My daughter saw the card after it was done and actually asked if she could give it to one of her friends. The inside sentiment says, Friends...are the joy of life. I love that saying from Flutterby Friend. I use is often. Thanks for taking a look at Cathy...out of her comfort zone.
