"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." ~ Isaiah 55: 8-11

SO SWEET / FTL #91 & SCIC #3...


I bought a new border punch a couple/few weeks ago & hadn't made a flower out of it yet, so I figured I better go ahead & get it out of my system - lol!




I started this card on Tuesday night (around 11pm!) and just didn't get to finish it until last night... not that it was overly complicated, I just didn't get any stamping time... I loved the inspiration over at Stampin' Celebration! - I hate that I couldn't get it done to enter. Have you checked it out? They have so many wonderful "not just a card" samples each week! I also used this week's Fall-to-Layout for this card.

The pleated layer under the ribbon is vellum. I bought a pack of vellum about 10 years ago while I was taking a digital printmaking class, 250 sheets, and I think I have 15 sheets left! I love that stuff! The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. The paper is from Stampin' Up!'s Bella Bleu collection, so lovely. I used SU's 3 flower punch for the purple flower under the pearl brad. The background was embossed with a SU! texture plate - I took Kari's advice and added some extra cardboard to the sandwich before running it through the Big Shot to get a deeper impression, worked like a charm!

Bye for now...

I love how delicate this card is, yet you've used that very bold purple - marvellous!

So very pretty. I love the embossed background. Love the frilliness, but not overly so! Totally beautiful card!
