Wedding Card with a Sketch

Today I made a wedding card.
I wanted it to be simple but beautiful.
I used a sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.

Sketch Challenge #97


I actually used this sketch very loosely.
I wanted to make a wedding card, simple but beautiful.
I saw the sentiment that I used on the card.. and thought 
I am going to use some of Daisy's digital paper...
I found this beautiful page of the Polished Lack Luster journal.


I added some tiny black pearls along the sides of the circle.
I added some small yellow and orange pearls on the flowers.
I added some black Stickles along the flourishes around the circle.
I did add the bride and groom's names on the black strip at the bottom
in white gel pen. The sentiment is also from Tsunami Rose Designs
I made this card in less than half an hour. The sketch and the 
digital paper helped me so much.. The card almost made itself.

Check out Tsunami Rose Designs...
and I challenge you to use this sketch for a
challenge card and find the

Tsunami Rose Altered Notebook



Happy Wednesday!
Today I made an Altered Notebook.
I was going to make a mini album because I love all
the papers from this journal but I was having trouble 
getting the album to go together right.
I love these papers so much I decided to do something
that came to me when I was in the Dollar Tree the other day
and saw this notebook... It was like a light came on...
I used digital papers from Tsunami Rose Designs.
I used the Polished Lackluster journal.
The pocket is from the same journal.
The sentiment is from the Digital Sentimental Collection #1

This altered book just came together with all
the gorgeous papers from Daisy's store.
I added lace and pearls and some flowers I had
in my stash. I also had the black butterfly ribbon in my stash.
The blue paper is a die cut that a friend lent me..
I love it... 



I think the best thing about this paper is it can be used
in so many ways...
I went vintage with the lace and pearls and lacy flowers..
but....
I could have went modern and chic with gems and sparkles
and less distressing.
Either way it looks amazing....
So come and check out the store...

Tsunami Rose Designs- Tussy Mussy

I have to tell you when I saw this I had no idea what it meant.
Tussy Mussy.... 
I was very interested in all the pictures on pinterest...
So here is my Tussy Mussy with flowers...
The Tussy Mussy itself is made with kraft paper.
I printed off one of journal pages from Life Abloom on vellum.
I wrapped it around the cone.. 
I added pink pearls and two different laces.
I used the same journal paper printed on shiny paper.
I also printed three other journal pages.
I cut scalloped circles from one, and two other I used
to cut more flowers...



Flowers I cut with my cricut (AP) 
then glued with a hot glue gun.


These were done with shiny paper then inked...

These flowers were also done on shiny paper 
but are cut into scallops.. I fussed then up then
added a brad... they have about 8 layers.


Check out Daisy's store... 
I love love love digital paper and all of her's 
are gorgeous...

Atlantic Hear#89

I did change the sketch slightly as I made the main box
smaller as I wanted to showcase the flowers on the main panel
and the butterfly on the smaller squares.



I didn't want to cover up the butterfly so I did 
the sentiment under the box.



I love this simple but pretty card.
