Today's card is for the sketch challenge on Splitcoast. This is a nice simple layout but also a little difficult. I seem to have troubles with layouts that have small panels. But that is why I love challenges, keeps the 'ol noggin thinking!!! I came up with the idea to use my first anniversary set from Papertrey. Lots of great smaller images!! The image one I chose is my favorite!! After stamping and punching them out I came up with idea to use Taylor's Multi Color Twinkles, the lighter pink color matches so well with the cardstock!!! This is one of my favorite color combos with Papertrey colors (which I stumbled upon accidentally!). I knew I wanted to do something with ribbon on the left side and had to think a while on what to do. Then I remembered the ribbon rose and I think it fits in real nice!!! Bonus, it is easy and fun!!!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!!!

  4. Hi Lori,

    Your cards are gorgeous. You are certainly quite talented. I have what might be an odd question. I was wondering what gadget that is you are using to display your cards. Looks pretty neat.
