There She Goes - Dance and I create a Get Well Soon Card




You know those crafters out there, who everything they do looks exactly how you want your cards to look? I have a couple of card idols.... one of them is shabby, one is purely clean and simple, and one, who does what I like to call 'clean vintage'. If you participate in a lot of challenges, like I do, you've probably spied her around... Narelle Farrugia. Her style is absolutely breathtaking, all clean lines and vintagey.... (who even knew they went together???) Anyway, there is a point to my swoon.... I used inspiration from Narelle's cards to create....
I used a Basic Gray card base, layered with Crumbcake and a piece of patterned paper (this was an off cut, and I'm not sure which company it is from!) I then tied some bright yellow ribbon and stamped the flowers from There She Goes with StazOn on So Saffron and Daffodil Delight card and cut them out. The sentiment panel is cut with my Labels 4 Nestabilities and sponged in Basic Grey and stamped with the leaf image from Dance, the main sentiment is from the Stampin' Up! set Sincere Salutations. 
I am entering this into the CR84FN Colour challenge and the upcoming sketch from ICSketches
Thanks for popping by! Go check out Narelle's cards!
