Sweet Card!

Happy Wednesday, everyone!! I hope you are having a great week!! I'm still not getting all of my Feedburner email subscriptions. Is anyone else having this problem?? I am getting a few notifications when blogs I follow have a new post but not nearly all of them. I'm not sure what to do about it...I've tried looking online but can't find a solution. So frustrating :(

I have a card to enter into the Crafty Friends Challenge #3 this week. The challenge is an Inspiration Challenge (see photo below).


For my card, I used papers from My Mind's Eye Rosy stack...I thought the papers were an almost perfect match for the inspirational photo and colors :)


The base is a Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Rectangle die. I like how the green striped paper mimicks the stripes in the tablecloth of the inspirational photo. I cut it with a Grand Rectangle die and sewed it to the base.


The white shape is a Spellbinders Parisian Motifs die. The circle is a Nestabilities Small circle. I used them to represent the plates in the picture. The orange layer is a Lacy Doily Accent die. I used a Nestabilites Label 4 to cut the tag...don't those flowers look like the inspirational photo??!! I inked all the edges with Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink. "Sweet" is from the K Andrew Designs Coffee & Tea Time stamp set:

The individual gems are from The Paper Studio, the swirls from Recollections. The ribbon is from Joann and the button and natural fiber from my stash.

Here's the Crafty Friends Challenge #3 inspirational photo:


Thanks so much for stopping by!! I will be super-busy the next few days and will stop by to visit when I can!! Have a great rest of the week :)

  7. This is so lovely, my sweet friend! (Hey look, the card is named after you!) I am crazy over the Spellbinder assortment, which goes without saying. The papers are so beautiful.. so springy, bursting with nature. :o) Sparkly flourishes always make everything better, and this is certainly no exception. Divine design once again, Lisa! I'm sorry you're still experiencing Blogger issues.. it may be one of those things that Blogger will eventually resolve, leaving you stuck until then. :( I hope it settles quickly, my friend. It must be so irritating. I hope you have a nice rest of the week, despite the busy bee-ness!

    Hugs and blessings!

  10. This is very pretty. I must admit that I thought that your sentiment block with "sweet" on it was a die cut or something. The sad thing is that I have, use, and love that stamp set. I guess that means you coordinated perfectly!

  18. Oh Lisa, your cards are always so amazing - and this one is stunning . You are truly an inspiration.. I always wonder how you put them together - that probably didn't make any sense, lol, I am assuming you aren't welding them if you are using the spellbinder dies..
    So sad to hear blogger is still giving u a bad time - hope they fix it soon. Hugs Sandy
