FMS#233

Hi everyone!!!


Twelve o'clock here, but I want to post my card for Freshly Made Sketches, before I go to bed!!!!

This is the card I have made:

The leaf stamp is from a local craft shop, Great Impressions.  Coloured with GraphIt pens.
Notebook edge die from MFT.
Sentiment stamp from Verve.
The die cut word was a gift from the sweet Joyce, from Cards-by-the-Sea!!!!


I will be calling this a day now and be off to bed!!!!
Such a great pleasure having you here!!!  Hope to see you again, soon!!!!!

This is beautiful, Petra! The notebook edge die is such a fun look and your leaf is coloured beautifully.

So beautiful! Love the vibrant green!

Oh this is more 'you'!! Love how you used the vellum. I really like the scene you take your card photos in. I just use plain card. Still where I live in London, in flats, there is no where like this to take such a lovely background x

ook al weer zo'n mooi kaartje. het groen en zwart springt er uit, de witte tekst vind ik ook heel mooi naar voren komen! Lieve groetjes, Erna

Beautiful layering as ever there Petra my friend! I LOVE how you have built up that sentiment, with the die-cut. vellum, little black piece that says 'you', and then the 'best day ever' in two fonts . . . fantastic job of making a mini work of art out of something as humble as a sentiment . . . you have such talent! Of course, I also love the layering of the rest of the design too! Have a wonderful weekend! Hazel xx

Fresh and crisp and gorgeous, Petra ... that notebook edging is fabulous ... love the sentiment set onto the delicate vellum! Hugs, Anita :)

Joyce said...

This is a fantastic card--love how you've got that leafe in green and then just in outline. And, it always makes me smile to see one of my die cuts used on a card so far away from home. So glad you are enjoying them.

Wanda Cullen said...

That leaf is such a WOW element! I always love seeing how you layer and combine different geometrics! Stunning card...again!! :-)

Becca Cruger said...

There is something so artful in the layering of this. That vibrant green filmed gently by the softness of the vellum creates a beautiful juxtaposition!

cm said...

Once again, your artistry delights and amazes! I'm simply going to second (and third and fourth) all the previous comments; another stunning creation in every way!

Fantastic card Petra. I love everything about it... the leaves, the strips, the vellum rectangle underneath the die-cut word... great layers and great composition.

I see we are both night owls. I love, love, love this card Petra.. There are so many reasons why I would be here for a long, long time. but let me try.. the limited color palette is fantastic! it allows each element to stand out and yet work cohesively together! Again the use of your vellum is so well done and the mixture of stamps and dies are so, so pretty Petra. And here you are with your signature black. The circle around the leaf highlights it perfectly without being distracting. Also what i love is the use of the positive space of your binder die. Most people (like me) would always use the negative but not you.. So well done my friend... So well done...
