You don't bring me flowers...You don't sing me love songs...

Happy Saturday, guys! I hope you had a fabulous week, and are enjoying your weekend. I have a Sketch for You to Try sample for you today...as well as a peek at one of the new Verve sets being released on Wednesday. YAY!

When I showed this card to my hubby, he said, "Sweetie, did the Isle of Capri Casino throw up on your card?" Yes. As a matter of fact it did. Marched right into my stamp room. HMPH. What does he know?? Take a look.


I know! I love it! I'm really happy with how it turned out. The grass is from Floral Whimsy, and the stems are from Thankful Blossoms. The rest are from the new set called Grateful Elegance...I love it. You can see a couple more projects made with this set on the Verve Blog today.

Not a whole lot to say tonight...or this morning (it's super late!!), so I'll leave you with links to check out more spiffy stuff with this sketch:

I have been to the Isle of Capri Casino and it is beautiful - just like your card!! Well, I haven't really been there (is it actually a place?!) but I'm protesting every hubby's card comments because they know nothing - about stamping! BAWH! (I'm having a hubby-knows-nothing-about-stamping day...)

Hugs,
Amy

Hello,

I've just started a blog recently and was lucky to find yours because I find it really inspiring! I LOVE this card!! It is so vibrant and whimsical but not busy at all. I just got a Cuttlebug recently so am going through a "want to use it on everything" spin and I love how you used it here. The flowers are gorgeous! They give me a lot of ideas!

It's very pretty!

Your card is gorgeous Shannan! The layout, the colors, everything!!!

Laurie Schmidlin said...

Ok...Shannan, I want to be able to do that!! Whenever I put more than a couple of colors together it looks like one of my pictures from kindergarten. Sigh... But YOU...you make it looks so easy!! This is just a feast for the eyes...beautiful in every way!!!

This is so pretty. It's bright and cheery and not at all overyly done. Also can you explain to me how you come up with all the unusual titles for your blog enteries.

Doris said...

It's not easy using bright colors without being gaudy, but you've done it! Fabulous card--your husband owes you a special hug and dinner out!
