Thinking of You Today...

Today's card was born because my roommate needed a "thinking of you" card for her aunt, so I decided to create one based on Jen's Deconstructed Sketch No. 23, and Verve's Get Your Diva On Handmade Happiness Challenge.

I used Blush papers from My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Two Collection, Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink, a sentiment from Papertrey Ink's Everyday Classics stamp set, and created a flower from an old pattern that I picked up for a dime at a yard sale this summer. I spritzed it with some Tattered Angels Pearl Glimmer Mist and sewed a PTI Sweet Blush button in the center.

I have been working on Christmas cards lately, will try to post some soon.

Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful day!


  1. It's gorgeous Cresta...I love the antiqued look and the beautiful vintage accents! A delightful entry into our handmade happiness gallery! Thanks for playing along with us!

  2. Oh this is wonderful. That flower is absolutely gorgeous and I love how elegant this turned out. Brilliant bit to make the flower from a pattern... just gorgeous! Thanks so much for joining us for this week's Deconstructed Sketch!

  3. Love that flower, what a fantastic look! I hope you are not getting too stressed out. I've got my back out again, but lots of home therapy and I'll be able to slowly trek along. Have a marvelous holiday this week with your family!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a message! I appreciate each and every one! Have a great day!
