Friends Are Kind To Each Others' Hopes

Happy Saturday! We awoke this morning to heavy rain and lots of thunder! My little calico cat is in hiding somewhere under a bed and my dog is hanging out at my feet, trembling. Poor babies! I wish I could make them understand!
Today's card is for the Freshly Made Sketch Challenge. They have a really great sketch and I just had to play!

I took a little creative license with it to suit the stamp and paper I wanted to use. All of the patterned papers are from the Porcelain Rose line by Kaisercraft. I can't resist a pretty bird! The stamp is by Inkadinkado. I stamped it in blue ink and cut it out. I added a little Webster's Pages trim to it along with some cream seam binding. The pink pearls and resin rose are the finishing touches.

Thanks for visiting me today! Have a great weekend!

  9. Hi Kristi,
    I follow your post from Freshly Made Sketches, cuz I needed a closer look at your card. And boy and I glad I did! Your card is very stunning! I love the feel of your card, it's kind of vintage, but romantic too. Not romantic as in w/ a man & woman, but the feel of all your embllies. Love your bird DSP! Love it all! Great job!

    1. Thank you KristyLee! I wasn't able to respond to you via email,so I'm responding here in case you see it. Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving me a sweet comment!

  10. Arrggg! You make me so jealous. You make turning a sketch into something beautiful look so easy. I am trying to learn from you by paying closer attention to the sketch challenges that you do, but it's a lost cause. I'll just stick to drooling over yours !

  11. I think Shona summed up my thoughts well! How do you make great cards all the time?!
