WSC41 Kind Thoughts



Finally I had time to create a card for Beate's
WSC #41.

My nice "Brown" man came and delivered a package....had to put stuff together first, before I could play. Included was my newest addition the
"Kind Thoughts" Set....gorgeous!!!

I'm still playing with the color combo's my Blog Candy participant's have chosen as their favorites!!!

This combo was chosen by my friend and frequent visitor Cindy aka "wisteriagirl".

Her favorite colors are - Close to Cocoa, Soft Sky and Whisper White.

I have never used these colors before, so I had to give it a try and let me tell you - they are absolutely beautiful!!! Thank you Cindy for those striking soft colors!!! Love ya....

About the card ....the measurements are 5" x 5". I've made Close to Cocoa my base color and added Whisper White on top.
Then I've created a panel with the scalloped rectangle Nesti and I also started with Close to Cocoa and added a stripe of the Soft Sky Prints DP. A piece of Close to Cocoa was placed in the middle before I added the Double Stitched Soft Sky Ribbon.

The gorgeous Pearl Brads are from "S.E.I" and I believe I've bought them at Michael's. The package comes in 3 different colors - the soft brown, soft blue and red. Perfect match for the Close to Cocoa and Soft Sky colors.

Anyhow - I've also cut both circles with the scalloped circle Nesti's. Before the white one was cut I've stamped the image with Close to Cocoa and then used the Blender Pen to color in the Soft Sky. Another Brad was placed in the center of the image. The panel and the circles were all raised with Stampin Dimensionals.

The sentiment is also from this set and I stamped it also with Close to Cocoa. ~TFL~

I have been rambling on and I've almost forgot to mention that I was also inspired by Beate's super gorgeous card she has made for this challenge and I think I've already told her that I would shamelessly case it - LOL!!! Beate with out you my cards would be just plain ......you are an inspiration to me!!!
