FTTC105–Fun with Designer Papers

 

SONY DSC

Hello everyone~

I hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s Day!! Sadly my Valentine raptured his Achilles tendon on Sunday during the job in Wyoming (he’s been there since January). He is heading home today and will be here some time on Friday…A good thing is that he gets to stay at home for a while. A bad thing is that it will take a long time to heal….approximately 6 months for the fast recovery!! I’d appreciate greatly if you can pray for him. He is really in pain and I just hate I cannot be with him right now :( He sent me a wonderful wine & food gift package for a Valentine’s day gift because his job was not supposed to be done another 3 months…  Looks like we get to share the package together :)

 

OK, enough about my family matter…it’s time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC105).  Betty Wright is our challenge host and she is challenging us to *mix & match 3 or more designer papers* for you card/project!! Please visit at Flourishes Blog to find more detail about how to play the FTTC challenge.

There are so many beautiful designer papers out there and of course I love using them for my project. I’ve seen Cindy sometimes stamps images on the designer papers and I decided to take her idea for my inspiration :) I used Spring Ephemerals set for the stamped image and Tag Lines for the sayings. I added the punched butterflies with rhinestones on the stamped mat and embellished the ribbon and Prima roses to finish off the card.

 

I used the sketch from Card Positioning Systems 205 (CPS205) and my color inspiration was come from CR84FN Color Challenge 15 (CR84FN15).

I'm so sorry to hear about your husband! I know an Achilles injury takes a long time to heal and can be very painful. Poor thing! As for your card... gosh I haven't seen this stamp used in a long time. Love it with the pretty shade of blue background with the white trails which remind me of bugs zooming around in a garden.
