My Favorite Thoughts

I have been attempting to do the kind of layering in my cards that I see in some of my favorite designers cards; like Becca Feeken and Andrea Ewen.

I love the Spellbinders dies for their intricacy and layerability so I have used four die cuts for the center medallion on this card as well as three layers of the background papers.  I really have to think about it a lot and review some of my favorite designers creations  before starting.  Hopefully, it will become second nature as it seems to be for them!

Besides the Spellbinders Dies, I have used a Prima Flower, a Webster’s Pages Cameo Pin, a rayon seam binding bow and a triple pearl pin that I do not know the name of .  Perhaps my friend, Milu, from whom I buy these pearl pins can comment and tell me where they come from.  The stamp is a Verve stamp with a quote from Georgia O’Keefe.  The ink that matched the background paper perfectly doesn’t show up well on camera.  I hope you can read it.  Remember, if you click on the photo, you will get a larger view.

I hope to hear from my subbies;  I always appreciate you comments!!

    Love the various shades of blue. Of course your favorite thoughts are sweet – mine go more to the “chewing through the leather straps” side. LOL
