cherish


Happy Sunday stampers, scrappers & crafters!
I certainly hope that you all are having or have had a great weekend! Quiet and peaceful on the mountain and just lovely weather today! I puttered in my garden and enjoyed the signs of spring!
I did make a few cards and one of which I would like to share with you all. I had in my mind using Very Vanilla with a slight touch of color. I wanted a pretty card that was elegant looking, so this is what I came up with! How do you think it turned out? IRL it is very nice! On my screen it looks more like white than vanilla, yet of course when I uploaded it to my computer, it looked vanilla! Go figure! Does it look vanilla to you?

CS-Very Vanilla-SU! Always Artichoke-SU!
CB folder-Swiss dots
Marvy circle scallop giga punch
Stamp-Inkadinkado, sentiment-SU!
Ink-Always Artichoke
I painted on with my fine haired brush Always Artichoke on the swirls and added Dimensional Pearls-Butterscotch-(Ranger) Pop Dot beneath scallop.
Vanilla satin ribbon-by the yard Michael's
Thank you for stopping by today! Deb
