celebrating 25 years with pastels

Have you seen Case This Sketch #229?


It totally intrigued me. And I needed two anniversary cards. So... this happened.


Hello Heidi Swapp Dreamy PP, paper trimmer and sewing machine. Six rectangles from the sketch? Check. Hello Technique Tuesday Hello and MFT High Rise Number dies. Die cuts atop the rectangles? Check.

Then I veered from the sketch, inspired by the fabric layers of the bed canopy in the Daring Cardmakers inspiration photo.


Stitched on pleated crepe paper. Gold heat embossed the cake from Winnie and Walter Sugar Rush onto PP and fussy cut it. Added a die cut negative (CUTplorations Love) and a pink flower. A touch which I think my niece will like ;)



Inspired by these, I was.
Double D Challenges - made me pull out old Heidi Swapp Dreamy PP to get those colors


Daring Cardmakers - a cake, pink flower, ruffles and a touch of gold


Thanks for visiting. Enjoy your day.
