I'm falling for you -

:)

Hi Everyone!!!  Can you believe it?????  Two days in a row???  I just had to participate in the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge this week - I LOVED the sketch!  Well - I love all of the challenges, but actually had time to carve out for this one.....if there were only about three more days in a week - don't you feel that way sometimes?  hehe!   Wanna see the sketch??



That is a nice one, huh?  And guess what?  I pondered on it for a couple of days and decided on pairing up the Gently Falling set from the mini with the Spice Cake fabric - also from the mini  (  ;)  )  with some totally essential stamps that are from the set French Foliage - it is in the current idea book and catalog - but it was in last year's holiday mini.......do you see a great love of the leaf sets that come out in the holiday minis and me?  hehehehheeee.......
Oh Yeah - I bet you are wondering what I did???  I kind of got a bit side tracked - sorry ;)



Well?  you like?  I used some torn strips of the fabric in place of the three horizontal strips on the sketch - LOVE that!!  The leaves are more mustard, pool party and pear pizzazz topped with an outline of soft suede.  I then went over the entire panel with the three ESSENTIAL stamps from french foliage - the circle paris stamp, the tiny text stamp and the ink blot looking thing - those three stamps could be piled onto anything and it would look Great!!!  And the sentiment comes from Hand Penned, also from the mini - what a gorgeous stamp set!!  Take a closer look at the "stress" my main image panel went through:



that was great fun to rip, tear and dirty up!!

Oh, I don't want to forget - I also did up the inside, of course.....I can't hardly complete a card without doing it, huh??



Well - what do you think?
