Last upload for Isabella's challenges


Due to some family health issues, I am sorry to say that the challenge site at Isabella's Sketchbook will be disbanding the design team and stopping the challenges. I am so sorry to see this as this has been one of my very favorite sites to play at and I absolutely love Isabella's images. I wish them only the best and hope that in the future we will see more of this talented lady.
I am posting two projects, one I did a good while back and never posted...
It is a 3-d creation using an acrylic frame. I used the image "Notecard" and My Mind's Eye dp. My sentiment is from Stampin' Up and I created the flower by punching several times out of the dp and crumpling and layering...attached with an antique brad, also by SU. I gave this to my DH to put on his desk.
The card that I created today uses Isabella's "Basket of Twigs. I used SU card stock and dp from Provo Craft -- Soft Serenity. I created another flower the same way using some of my scraps of this dp. I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and OMS. I love the lavender satin ribbon attached to the basket.
I hope you enjoy looking at these and I will miss you Isabella!!

Patti,
So sorry to hear about Isabella's I know how much you love her beautiful images. Both your card and your project are amazing. I did get your e-mail and will try to work on it this weekend. Thanks :)

Both of these are stunning cards. Isn't Isabella's store still going to be open? I thought I had read that!

You beat me out again, girlfriend. Was my last chance to win Isabella's challenge...how many times did you win? Not fair! Kidding aside, loved your card...such soft colors. Congrats.
