LOC Because of You

As it comes gets closer to Christmas I am trying to CLEAN UP my desk - but we all know this is NOT GOING TO HAPPEN! LOL!  But I am having a lot of fun using the things that are on it...

For this Gatefold Card, I have used some gorgeous Pink Paislee Paper - totally gorgeous don't you think - combined with Layers of Color art stamps and Spellbinders Die Templates.  The card base is cut using Spellbinders Grand Labels Eleven

The flowers are from Wild Orchid - always beautiful!!  They are popped onto the Spellbinders Fancy Tags Three and cut using the Grand Calibur and the sentiment from the Glad Tiding clear art stamp set

The inside is as ornate as the front of the card, using Spellbinders Labels Ten and Sixteen, along with Layers of Color Old World Flourish clear art stamp set

The sentiment is from the Sweet Silhouettes clear art stamp set

Lots of layers and dimension here - as you can see!

This card is for the following challenges:
Totally Gorjuss - For Someone special

Sundays with Crissy - Anything Goes
I Brake For Challenges - vintage (all month)
The Paper Variety - anything goes
Sugar Creek Hollow - Thank you cards

  6. Those flowers sure are pretty and you've matched the colours perfectly with the papers & cardstock. Very nice :)

  7. Linda, the Pink Paislee papers are some of my favorites and with the dies, pearls and stamps you've used they become a vintage work of art. Wouldn't you love to get a thank you card like that, I would. So glad you could join us this week at Sugar Creek Hollow.
