Hello

I had something completely different in mind when I saw the challenge at Colour Me, but then I saw the MFT sketch. That sent me looking through my MFT dies for flowers & I also came across the Framing Flourishes, which I love.  
MFTWSC178That meant I needed little flowers so went with my favorite center from Prima Donna Petals--makes a great little blossom on it's own, I think. The shape of the Vertical Greetings die complimented the flourishes, so used it for my sentiment which is from Peaceful Wildflowers & is stamped in Memento Morocco. The flowers are embellished with Sticko gold dots & I added 3 tiny pearls to finish it off.  This will probably go with a RAK package to a blogging friend. I used scraps except for the card itself, so will enter at Pixies Snippets Playground.
Quite the day--first bath at home for Fritz--the groomer has done the others.  It took both of us & hamburger bites, but we now have a sweet smelling pooch!  Hopefully each one will get easier.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend & thanks for coming by.

AH, dog bathing...now that the weather's better I'm ready to tackle that myself. I'd honestly rather bathe the cats, at least they're small & squirmy ;) I've loved all your creations the past little bit - I'm so behind in commenting that I'm "making an appearance", lol!

Love your card! I've never bathed a dog but my cat once got covered in oil and had to take a turn in the tub... not easy! Jo x

Bath time for the Persians I used to show was never the problem it was the hair drier afterwards! I had to use a special quiet one on a low heat. Card looks lovely with the scrolls entwined with the flower centres. Hugs Mrs a.

It took me awhile on how to approach the MFT challenge and still came up with nothing. Love your take on the sketch, Greta! It is just so feminine with all the curls!

It must be fun to bath the dog!

What a pretty design Greta, love the movement! Max looks like a little drowned rat when he's in the tub! Give Fritz a pat on his soft sweet smelling head from us!!

Adorable card, Greta! I'm glad your hubby helped with the bath - I'm sure it was a lot easier with two sets of hands.

Shirley said...

Ouuuuuuuuuu! I really like the flourishes and flowers! A really beautiful card!

Martha said...

Darling card, Greta! I love the design!

I'm sure Fritz appreciated the benefit of his bath: smelling clean.

Very pretty and great use of snippets. xxx

Di said...

Gorgeous card Greta! Love the use of snippets too.

I did giggle about Fritz and his first bath at home - brought back memories of one little Bichon Frise howling the place down when we gave him his first bath :)

Hugs, Di xx

Hahahha...I have fond memories of dog-bathing and the ensuing shaking and house-romps my pooches did, not to mention the squirming out of the towel as quickly as possible. Hilarious times! Bathing and hamburger bites - fabulous connection! I think he'll be looking forward to baths, especially with savory treats involved. Your card...GORGEOUS! Inspired take on the sketch, and those flowers and flourishes are sooooo lovely! Hugs~c
