Webster's Pages

I made this for the Card Patterns sketch this week. I am a huge fan of ovals and this one drew me in big time! Aside from ovals another HUGE favorite of mine is Webster's Pages patterned paper. I found mine at Limelight Papercrafts and Mandy has the best service, I highly recommend her. For this card, I used the Spring Mix Stamp TV Kit as well as Ribbon Stripes (for the checkered pattern). The lace (which I had thought was from Walmart, is actually from my dear friend Nina over in Croatia, isn't it beautiful..sorry won't find it at Walmart, my oops!) and just lightly sponged with brown ink to darken it a bit. The flowers are actually paper flowers that I pressed into my ink pads, real easy and with white flowers you can create any color you want...gotta love that!

It is a busy day today. Our oldest son has his first baseball game tonight, it is a scrimmage game so it doesn't count, but so looking forward to seeing him play ball again! I love the spring for many reasons and a huge one is Little League.
Thanks for stopping by!
Blessings,

This is gorgeous! I love the ovals too. Now if I could only find the scalloped oval around here I'd be a happy girl.

This lace is from Walmart? It looks very similar to the ones I can get here. I bet they're much cheaper there, too. I'll make sure to check it out next time I'm in the US. Stunning card, Jennie!
