Now, onto my post for the week:


I think this is the biggest card that I have ever made, but if I wanted to follow Priscilla's sketch, I had to go with a bigger sized card. This one was alot of work, but I do so love the cute and frilly baby cards, and I love the cherished teddies too. I could not for the life of me get a good picture of this card. I took well over 100 pictures and still could not get the picture to come out sharp. I am hoping that nothing is wrong with my camera. I did the best I could, but you will not really get the full effect of how pretty this card is in person with these pictures. I want to share with you that I used the shimmer sprays from Lindy's on the yellow portions of this card to give it a golden shimmer and even on the image background with some frosted lace to soften the image. I hope you enjoy my sample card this week and will give the sketch a try for yourself.

Have a great week, and please leave a comment and let me know that you dropped by. Thank you.
