Sending You Hello-CPS #108


Today I played along with CPS Challenge #108 .  I have been so inspired by the most recent PTI Blog Hop where I saw so many beautiful crocheted flowers.  Although I don't know how to crochet, (not enough patience), I did remember I bought a few crochet flowers over a year ago and never used them.  I love this weeks sketch.  I knew immediately that I wanted to use some of the things I just received from the PTI March release.  The new die for Turning a New Leaf became my focal point with the mat image from Sending You and an adorable background stamp set, Twinkle.  I used Lemon Tart, Pure Poppy and Ocean Tides for my color choices.  Twinkle is really easy to line up, was able to do it on the first try (usually takes me a bit of practice).  I also used the Border Edger #1 to make a cute top layer.  I can tell I will be making this card in several different color schemes in the future.  Thanks for taking a look.

Turned out so cute Cathy!!! I've got to get out my leaf dies.

Cathy, this is BEAUTIFUL! I love how you turned the sketch, and your leaves and crocheted flowers are fabulous! I'm awaiting delivery of the leaf die and I can't wait to get it!

That is so pretty, Cathy! I REALLY love the way you used the edgers die. I have yet to use mine...you've inspired me to pull them out! Love the color combo, too!

Good Golly Miss Molly! Cathy this is fabulous! I love how you've showcased the new PTI goodies to such perfection. I am also glad you remebered those fab crochet flowers as they are the perfect embellie. Love The cap of Twinkle Twinkle. -Very Vintage Chic. Another incredibly inspiring beauty.

Cathy, I'm loving the simplicity on this card and having a focal point. Love the red space base too. Makes the top part pops out.
