#GDP020



Hi everyone!!!


I got to know about a new (for me) challenge!!!  It's at the Global Design Project Blog and I decided to join in the fun of CASEing a card by Connie Collins.



This is what my card looks like:

 



Sentiment stamp and die from Verve.
Notebook edge die from MFT.
The piece of ledger paper is from Teresa Collins.
Added a twine bow, some hand punched flowers and black plastic dots to finish it off.


I'm tired and will be calling this a day now!!!  Off to bed I am!!!!


Thanks so much for popping in  -  always a pleasure having you here!!!

Je kaartje is weer geweldig Petra, en oh wat mooi, die stans! Wat heb je dat mooi gedaan op de kaart, echt heel erg gaaf! Ben ook fan van Verve Stamps, maar in NL niet te krijgen helaas.
Lieve groetjes Erna

Another terrific creation Petra my dear friend! LOVE your interpretation of the inspiration card! love that great, big 'u' with the two strips of black threaded through like that and the 'love' embossed with gold on the top of the 'u'. So many great touches, it's a feast for the eyes again. I have to keep coming back to look! Have a lovely day my friend! Hazel xx

Love that big ole U with the 2 stripes -- another awesome creation :)

Pat said...

I love your take on Connie's pretty card by using the colours in your own unique style Petra and the way you have tucked the black strips through the letter and added the pretty flowers and twine and enamel dots and the more neutral notebook layer makes the embellishments stand out even more. x

That is a new to me challenge as well, Petra! YOU my friend have borrowed a few of the best elements from Connie's card, and made it Petra-style - always a favorite of mine - LOve the strips of black, and that U - every bit is gorgeous ... xx

This is such a sweet card, Petra.
Love how you used the Verve set.

Paula Dobson said...

Petra, I love that you only used a couple of stripes on your card, rather than a complete background. It really make the rest of the design sing! Great CASE idea. Thanks for playing at Global Design Project with us.

Gail Davidson said...

So, so cute Petra. Lots of elements to love on this card that have already been pointed out by others. Well done! Xoxo

Happy Dance said...

I love the stripes contained within the "U." It picks up on the inspiration card perfectly. And the glittery gold 'love' is perfect against the red. The sprinkling of flowers really mimics the hearts too. Beautiful card. Just love this. Bev

Joyce said...

A new challenge for me, too. I'm going to check it out. I love your card. That big 'u' is fantastic and fun.

Brian King said...

Such a crisp and clean project! I love every detail! Such an amazing backdrop to the card, too! :) Thank you so much for playing along with this week's Case the Designer (Connie Collins) Challenge at Global Design Project.

Pragtige ontwerp en die rooi, swart en wit is 'n treffer Petra

KT Fit Kitty said...

Oh I like this one too! You have a way with die-cuts and you arrange them so beautifully! Love how the flowers flow diagonally and how you have added the thin black strips through the U - brilliant!

Monika Reeck said...

I love your idea Petra
that U and that LOVE and that RED bold color
all together is so harmony on your card

I adore your stacked of papers
