Blessings

I didn't want to miss another ODBD SLC HERE, so started this card last night & finished it now in time to get it posted.  (I'm supposed to be cleaning house, so I'll check all your blogs later.)  I went back to the basic design I used several years ago for a snowflake card that was published.  Some of my old work I really don't like now, but I find that some of it is still "me" & it's OK not to be trendy.  The flower & the sentiment are from ODBD Sweet William-Small set.  I knew I wanted to use this pretty striped pp, so that determined my inks: Distress Ink squeezed lemonade, Brilliance pearlescent sky blue & VersaMagic mango madness.  Since the pp has white glitter stripes, I used these pretty yellow glitter gems in the flower centers.  I didn't have the right color fiber, so inked a white string with the mango madness.  The challenge requirements are met by distressing the top & bottom edges of the card base & tearing the edges of all the panel strips.

  For you fellow doggie lovers, here's a picture of Blitz & Keesha after their haircuts--no more shaggy Schnauzers!  Thanks for stopping by.  I love to read your comments.

  4. Hello Greta
    Your Pp makes for a wonderful Bg, and you have matched the colours up on your Sweet Williams perfectly, adding the different trims creates more interest, and away from a CAS style card.
    Smiles:)

  8. Gorgeous distressing on the flowers, Greta! Love the summery colors. And your fur-babies are so adorable. I just want to hug 'em both! I've always wanted a Schnauzer. Are they a high maintenance breed?

  9. Your fur babies are so handsome Greta!! I had a mixed breed schnauzer growing up named Trixie- she had a gray beard so people always thought she was much older than she was :). Love your summery card!!
