For You

Hey there!  Did you have a good weekend?  I sure did!  I got down time which is always good!  My daughter was hibernating  err camped out in her room mostly. What are you going to do?  Teenagers.  I did get her to watch a movie with me.  Success!  It's been wacky weather.  One minute it's raining and then the next it's a  sunny moment.   Not complaining.  Love when it rains and waters the  crispy grass naturally.
Another Monday which means another Elizabeth Mae card for me to share with you!  This week I turned to vintage for a shabby chic approach to creating.  The challenge is to use only 2 colors! 



That was hard for me.  I know there is an extra little splash of green but the flower looked silly without a little leaf tucked in.  Neutrals don't count thankfully!  ;-) 

I pulled out a scrap of doily and was wondering how I could incorporate it into this design.  Truthfully, it was sitting on my desk and I was too lazy to put it way.  So it's been sitting here a bit begging for a home.  I did some fussy cutting on the banner and border which was easier than I expected.   In fact, once I did that I decided the image needed to be cut out as well.  I layered the card with my last bit of Creative Imaginations paper.  I am freaking because the Copics I used to color this image match that paper nicely and I am out!   I have to go on a search to find it.  The scallop was sent to me by a friend.  The ribbon also.  I have some awesome friends.  :-)  Well, I just remembered the flower too was sent to me!  I added a Making Memories paper flower under the beaded flower by cutting it down a bit.  The stamp is from CTMH.  I think pulled my dark ink Stickles out to add a few dabs of sparkle.

Such a cute, cute card, Amy! I love the feminine colors and the sweet dress form. The fancy cut banner behind is fabulous, and I love the snippet of doily that you used. I tend to leave things lying around my desk, too........and eventually they end up on something. :)
