Thinking of you

Papercraft star - challenge 34 -the above sketch by Liz Chidester.
Sentimental Sundays -challenge 44 -anything goes .
The paper flowers which were so popular now seem a bit dated , I'm not going to buy them again. For this flower I've used 4 large ones and folded them into quarters ,stuck them onto a base and added a small centre flower with red half pearl.The white border I stamped with a black flourish.The sentiment is from Ippity.
I've been up since six this morning, it's now 11.15am and I'm not showered or dressed yet and more importantly I haven't had any breakfast. Which comes first , the shower ,I will enjoy my brunch much more if I am nice and clean.

so cute and very nicely done


Very classy and elegant card Gail - love the swirls and the stick pin with the extra beads on. Great colour combo. too. Thanks for joining us this week at Sentimental Sundays. Hugs, Sylvia xx
PS: The Gracious Lady stamp is 8 years old so it may be difficult to track down. I have searched the 'net, and found a US ebay site which has one for sale (the auction ends on March 2nd). The seller's ebay ID is stampinsisters - it may be worth a look. (Do let me know if you have any success).

Yikes, if paper flowers are out I am dead ! I use them all the time, and I think yours look great. The little red bling all over is gorgeous. I always enjoy popping over here to visit you, Gail - you are so fun, and I love seeing you all the time now at Papercraft Star.
