Create Along With Us - December 2017

Hello friends.  It's release week over at Papertrey Ink, so that means we get to CASE the designers with one of their cards.  And as always, it's hard to pick just one when they're all so wonderful!!

I was drawn to one of Melissa Phillips cards and just LOVED her use of all the color!!


As much as I LOVE making Christmas cards, when we get to this time of year I am just craving all the color of flowers, and Melissa's card just made my floral loving heart smile!!  Here's what I came up with using some floral sets I already have on hand:


I stuck with most of the same colors as Melissa (Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores, Lilac Grace, Sweet Blush, Autumn Rose, Hibiscus Burst, Simply Chartreuse, & Harvest Gold), and then used the heart dies from Limitless Layers: Hearts and several stamp sets for the flowers.  The bulk of the flowers are from an older set (Beautiful Brushstrokes) that I haven't used in ages, and then some from Friendship Jar Flowers, Bitty Bouquets, Vintage Linens (for the leaves), and Cutaway Tags: Spring (for the sentiment).  An Aqua Mist satin ribbon and some white Nuvo drops finished off my colorful CASE of Melissa's card.


LOTS of beautiful cards from ALL the designers this month, so check them out and then play along for a chance at a $25 gift certificate!  You can find it all right HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
