Three Little Words.....



Good Tuesday Morning Peeps!

Today's card is done with the Sweet Sunday Sketch on Karen Giron's Blog The Sweetest Thing. I really loved the sketch when I saw it. Not sure my card does it justice. I used my new set from SU called "Three Little Words". I loved the set when I first saw it in the new cattie, I still love it just not so much love going on for his card. I am not sure this set can stand on it's own. It is very nice, I love the font on the "Three"..kinda reminds me of a fairy tale.

I started my card with a base of what is probably my favorite color, chocolate chip, and followed that with a piece of whisper white and then I used two colors of print patterns DS paper, real red and chocolate chip. After adhering them to the white piece I ran them through my cuttlebug with the swirl embossing folder.

I stamped the sentiment twice, once in chocolate chip and in real red. Cut out the "T" in red and mounted it on with dimensionals. The flower is done in red and old olive. The flower is also stamped twice and then mounted with dimensionals. I added some ribbon and three brads in opposite corners.

So there it is, not my best work at all, but I was really un-inspired with this one. :(

So that's all for today, Thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!!

I think your card is really pretty Vicki. I love how you popped the "T" and the flower and the embossing folder you used on the background really gives a nice texture to the card. Just lovely!

Vicki if this is not your best work, then I'm in total awe of you! I think it's absolutely gorgeous, and how cool to turn the layout 90 degrees. Why didn't I think of that?!
I'm going to have to go and check out your "best" work now! TFS!
