I'm a Grandmother of 4, mother of 2,and a wife for 38 years. I've been crafting since I was a girl, but I never felt very artistic until I started stamping. I also quilt, and I will share these things in this blog.
This week's challenge at PPA is a sketch challenge by Margaret Moody. I don't usually make square cards, and I could have made my standard 5.5" x 4.25" card, but I decided to make a 4.5" easel card.
I made an anniversary card for some friends who have been married for 37 years this Wednesday...that's a long time. I thought that this sketch would make a great anniversary card. What do you think?
Here it is standing up:
I hope you can tell where the card starts and the background ends. I used Stampin' Up paper; Whisper white and Summer Sun c.s.and Night and Day dsp (I used 3 different patterns). I used Summer Sun ink to color the pattern for the butterflies...cut with my Big Shot.
I haven't done a challenge or posted on my blog since April. May is almost over ...what have I been doing?
The ladies at Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge have been moving along, though. They're up to challenge #80, and they have chosen "Becoming Jane" for this week. Such a beautiful movie.
We were required to use flowers and pearls. My inspiration from the movie was Jane's sister Clarissa. For a party she wore a pretty pink dress with a ruffled neckline, and her pearl necklace. She was engaged to a man that she loved very much, but he went to sea and never came back.
The sentiment is also appropriate for Jane who fell in love with a man who could not marry her and keep helping to support his family.
