My First "Collage" Card




While visiting with my friend Olga at her blog the other day I saw where she had entered a lovely card at a site called The Sweet Stop and I fell in love with their sketch for this week and just had to give it a try.

In addition to the sketch they asked you to add something winged to your card.
 I had also been at     Mark's Finest Papers where they are having a challenge to create a collage card. I decided to give that a try as well and combine the two into my card. I love these new items that I have from Pink Paislee, I used some of the paper, the clear stamps and a butterfly from the ephemera package. My dotted dp as well as the green layered background piece is by DCWV- Mariposa. I used SU baja breeze, mellow moss and creamy caramel as my inks, as I wanted to keep it light.

I hope you enjoy this and will check out these two sites and play along with their challenges. Thanks Olga for pointing the way. Happy Day to you all!

Patti, your card is very pretty, and i have to say, when I say this sketch I feel in love as well, that I've down loaded it.
