Webster's Pages

The sketch for this card is from Card Patterns, (CP65). I made this for the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #80. The movie this week is Becoming Jane and in addition to being inspired by the movie, we were to use pearls and flowers on our project. Now to clarify, I have not seen this movie yet...but love Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility (and plan on checking this one soon!) I know in the latter mentioned two movies the fabric for the dresses/drapery/furniture is so beautiful and used some Webster's Pages patterned paper as well as a Webster's Pages Coco Bloomer for my card.

I used the two different stamp sets: Lovely Labels and Sew Pretty, as well as some Crochet Natural Lace, which I sponged with Cocoa ink to distress it a bit so it would blend in with the patterned paper. I sponged the edges of the layers with distress ink: Antique Linen and Brushed Corduroy, so it also fits for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge #60 this week. Hey Patti and Olga...I am combining challenges again, lol! I love it when you go to make a card and by the end you...LOVE it! That is how it is with this one.... :o) I do not mean to sound prideful at all, just love how all of the elements came together...
Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you have a wonderful day!
Blessings,

Not prideful at all! I know that exact feeling! I'm sure I'm not the only one that goes back and looks at there creations several times to admire them! We were made in the image of the Almighty Creator and I know he looks down upon us and admires what he has made. :)

I love combining challenges too!

That is an enjoyable feeling, isn't it? When we can look at something we've finished and it turns out just how we saw it in our minds? I don't think its prideful as much as satisfaction. Thanks for participating in the Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge this week!
