IC124 and SC172

Well this card was a stinker right from the start, funny thing is, is that it should have been an easy card, I had my layout and an inspiration piece so all I had to do was pick out a stamp and paper....... yeah right! Never stamp with a migraine late at night, the colors in the paper I choose were hard to match up for me and this is what I ended up with. It just makes me realize again that its the cards that I work and struggle to make that I like the least. I made this card yesterday and I tried to load it onto blogger and I kept getting error messages (probably a sign not to post it). This card is for last weeks sketch challenge and last Saturday's inspiration challenge on splitcoast, the inspiration piece was the fabric from this quilt or the quilt it self.

Supplies: Lockhart Geraniums, Warmest Regards - SU, Canvas BG, Copic markers, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Basic Grey - Blush designer paper, Making Memories lace ribbon. Colors: Cranberry Crisp, Creamy Carmel, Handsome Hunter, Ruby Red


Thanks for looking!

Well for struggling, it came out so nice. I love all the "texture" to it and I love the way you colored the geraniums. The whole card makes me remember my great grandma who raised me.....
Thanks for posting it, as it made me smile and brought back happy memories!

Well, you may not like it but I sure do! The colors all flow together nicely... and I like the vintage looking lace you added to give it a warm feel like the quilt.

You should stamp with a headache more often!
