Mother's Card for Isabella's Sketchbook


I have found a new challenge site that I just adore. The images are so beautiful...Please check out Isabella's Sketchbook if you have the time. The challenge was to create a card for Mom, yours or someone special. I used the garden gate image that I bought the other day and am pleased with how it came together. I used some dp from NRN designs layered on Pale Plum card stock. The ribbon is another of my Dollar Tree finds and I simply punched out an oval and added my sentiment which is from Gina K designs set A Beautiful Life. I colored the image with my SU markers. I have several posts today, so please check them out and leave me a comment if you have time.
See you soon!

This is a very pretty card. The colouring is terrific and I love the way you brought the ribbon through the paper instead of all the way around it. Thanks for joining us at Isabella's Sketchbook and do come again - we would love to have you.
Hugs!

Patti, First of all I love you blog! Your work is amazing and I love the way your blog reads, very appealing to the eye. Next, to answer your question about my latest card on my blog, did I paper piece my paper? Yes I did! It doesn't always come out perfect, but that time it just did! Having a comment on my blog is very few and far between, so thanks for making my night!!
