This is so beautiful, Petra! The way the flower nestles into the curves and angles of the die is just gorgeous!

Seriously gorgeous card, Petra!! At first, I thought you partially die cut this...but it's all fussy cut! I'm very impressed as I couldn't do this to save my life, lol!! That rose is beautiful, and I'm loving the yellows you've chosen for it. I think you've got a winner here. Bev

Amazing design Petra. Even though you've used the sketch, you have made it your own by fussy cutting around your gorgeous bloom. Beautiful! xx

Oh Petra I just love this card!! So simple and elegant!! The pop of yellow is what makes it so pretty and your 'beautiful' flourish is so fitting and right for this card... And of course you embellish so simply with your little rhinestones...I love this card Petra!! Seriously good!!

Lovely card Petra. That rose is so pretty... one of my favorite sets. Love your take on the sketch... and how you followed the outline of the rose. Very creative! You always think out of the box! :)

Rosemary said...

This is so very pretty, and I love how you did your cutting. What a fabulous way to create interest in your top panel.

Geri said...

YEP...I knew I'd be greeted by another stunning creation! Beautifully clean and simple! Love the vibrant colors and LOVE the popped up panel! Did you cut it by hand?

Hi Petra!!! What a beautiful card this is!! So Darnell just filled me in on how comment replies work, I had no idea that when I reply to someone's comment on my blog, it doesn't notify them. I just assumed you would be notified!! Anyway, thank you sooo much for the sweet comment that you left on my blog. I replied, but you may not have seen it, so I'm going to copy and paste it here on your blog. Hope I'm doing this right now... lol Hi Petra!! Yes!! Of course I remember you!! I can totally relate.. I haven’t been around blogland either. Life has just been way too chaotic. On top of that, I’ve been dealing with some health issues the past few months. In fact, these are the 1st 2 blog posts/videos that I’ve done in ages. I miss it like crazy though. I haven’t been keeping up on my crafty friends’ blogs either so I’m hoping to get back into the swing of things now. Thank you so much for the oh so sweet comment. You really made me happy. I’m soooo glad you like my photo tutorials. I’ve been thinking a lot about them lately and I’ve been wondering if I should continue to blog that way or if I should simplify it like most other people do… I’m really torn. It would be a time saver to simplify it, but it’s what I like to see in blogs so that’s why I do it that way. I like to give anyone who is interested as much info. as possible if they were to want to make it themselves. And you commenting on that specifically makes me happy to hear that someone is enjoying my tutorials. So thank you so much for your comment. Hahaha, you are not alone on the distress inks. I’m so envious of people that can put this light layer of color right in the middle of their card. There’s NO way I’d be able to do that!! But thanks to these clarity brushes, I can actually do just that now. I do love DI’s, they just don’t love me… 😉 Well I’m so happy to see you back in blogland!! Let’s keep in touch, ok? Happy New Year to you as well. Hugs ~

Hallo Petra! Dit is so lekker om weer jou pragtige kaartjies te sien in blogland. Hoop dit gaan nog goed en 'n baie voorspoedige 2017 vir jou en jou familie toegewens. Ek verstom my aan hoe mooi en kreatief jou kaartjies altyd is en hierdie een is weereens pragtig gedoen. Die geel roos is so treffend saam met die mooi gesegde.
Groete,
Amelia
