Howl Sweet It Is

Do you just LOVE the flower on this card? You must. It is positively yummy. I just got two packages of these flowers and a couple yards of the lace on Tuesday and in the back of my mind there was some percolating going on and tonight it came together in this card. It looks delicate but it's a howler. This week I'm ho wing on Thursday. The Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge 17 was posted Tuesday and that's the usual howling day but that sketch had to percolate too. I usually like to combine the MMSC with another challenge but that just wasn't happening. Since I couldn't find anything else I wanted to combine with the sketch I decided to make a "get well " card and sat down with that in mind. This is what I love about the creative process, you start out with one thing in mind and you end up in a completely different place. This happens to me very frequently but since I usually like where I end up I'm happy about it. In fact where I end up is often much better than what I originally thought up. I guess I could use this for a get well card but it looks more like a bridal shower card to me. As a matter of fact that dress reminds me of my wedding gown, hmmm, maybe I can cut that up and use it in my cards...

This image is from the Clear Art Stamps "Glamour Girls" set. It's stamped in Memento rich cocoa on white card stock. The edges of the card stock were sponged with Memento Angel Pink and Ranger Tea Dye, all the paper edges were sponged similarly and then they were distressed. This incredible flower is a Prima Camelot Rose Gwenlyn. The paper is Stampin' Up DSP Bella Birds.

  1. Your card is Wonderful and it works for a get well card, but I can see it as a Brides maids "THANK YOU" card too :) Thank you so much for playing the Midnight Madness Sketch challenge this week and if you have not done so yet, please stop back by and check out the Mid Week Midnight Madness Tutorial :)
