You're In My Thoughts {VLVMar2011}

Hi there!!  I hope you all had a nice weekend!  We had my in-laws over for dinner on Saturday and spent all day Sunday at home in our pj's just catching up on laundry, stamping, and just hangin' out.  A great weekend!

I made some time on Sunday to stamp and couldn't wait to make a card for this week's Viva La Verve sketch.  Charmaine is our host this week and she came up with a gorgeous sketch!  I needed a card for a friend who is going through a rough time right now and decided on Verve's Amazing Wishes to make her card.  I paired Amazing Wishes with some Stella and Rose Hazel papers.  I am so loving the new My Mind's Eye papers. 

I stamped the large and small flower from Amazing Wishes on two of the patterns and cut them out.  I put a Making Memories decorative brad in the center of the large flower.  I used a Labels 14 to cut out sentiment.  The flower border was done with a new EK Success Abstract Flower border punch.  In place of ribbon in the sketch I used some cream twine that I recently picked up from The Cat's Pajamas.  Between this twine and my go to Divine Twine, I am in heaven.  A rounded corner, some machine stitching and an adhesive pearl flourish and I called it done!  LOVE how this turned out!

Your card is lovely and I'm sure it will be well-received. I sure like that new border punch and the papers you chose. My new MME paper collections are on their way, yah-hoo! Next I'll be on the lookout for the new CC papers, which are awesome, too! I'm nutty for pretty, fun or funky paper! :)

Gorgeous card Jackie - I love your paper pieced flowers. Those papers are to-die-for, aren't they? I managed to place my order at the weekend so I can't wait for them to arrive! Hugs, Ruth S
