I just knew that you would take my sketch and turn it into something fabulous. I love that your rectangle layers are askew and that the chevrons draw your eye right down to the focal point of your card. What a beauty this is!

Your cards are always like a breath of fresh air, Petra! This is a brilliant take on the sketch!! Enjoy the weekend!! Hugs, Darnell

MaryH said...

I'll echo Our Darnell, with the breath of fresh air comment. The style is CAS, yet you've used shapes, colors, and elements to create a card that is so uniquely your own style. I would love to be able to do this better, and I appreciated your sweet comments on the last card wherein I tried to do that! It takes skill, but I get lots of inspiration from those cardmakers who do it so well. Love the striped background with this shape and the pretty floral arrangement. TFS & Hugs.

I love your take on the sketch, Petra! You have such a wonderful and envious knack of putting elements together that look gorgeous and this is another fabulous example! So happy to see you at FMS again.

Claire said...

Beautiful Petra - the twine is so pretty under the sentiment and the splash of orange with the neutrals really pops!

Wanda Cullen said...

I love the large "Thanks"! It really draws the eye! Great design with the arrows and the black frame!

I don't know how you can stagger the images and they still look perfectly placed and clean! Wow, this is amazing!

Shawna Standish said...

I hope this card won Petra!! Gorgeous, simple, crisp and clean! Again there is your black so well done.. You are the queen of black! You accent so well with it.. I think my favorite part of the card however, is the pink flower behind the sentiment. Just enough color to draw your eye in.. Awesome... I really need to visit you.. hehehee!!
