New Home "Blues!"

This is tricky for me. The laptop is off being repaired and I am using a cell phone for the first time ever to post a comment and photo to this blog. I think I need some Benadryl for the itching from sheer nerves. Please come back home soon old broken laptop. How I long for a keyboard and large screen!

It's only taken me about half a year to congratulate my brother on their move to London from the DC area. Gadzooks... I'm getting yet slower and s-l-o-w-e-r over here. This will be entered into the challenge at StampTV. I'll figure out how to copy the challenge link later.

The flowers and leaves are white embossed vellum, then sponged colors to the unembossed sides. Wink of Stella is brushed onto the flowers, leaves, butterfly, blue background die cut and sentiment.

Stamp Set: Warm Spring Wishes by GKD
Ink: Wisteria  Wonder and Certainly Celery SU; Cornflower by Hero Arts
Embossing Folder: Amelie Lace by Anna Griffin
Large Die is from the Lace Collection from Anna Griffin
Sentiment Die is SB Romantic Rectangles Two
VersaMark and White Embossing Powder
Adhesive Foam Squares, ScorTape, Corner Rounder
Wink of Stella Clear
Blue and Clear Rhinestones

OK this is looking wonky to me but it's the best I can figure for now. Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving your sweet comments!!!


  1. This is so beautiful. I think you have a winner. And congrats on mastering your phone post too.

  2. Wow! I could not even attempt to post from my phone. You are amazing for doing that and this card well deserves that. Good thing that you can enter it in the MIUM challenge. It would be a shame not to. Beautiful texture going on with the embossing background and the swirls and the the flowers and the butterfly. Gorgeous.

  3. ok You got me Rosy, Would probably not attempt by phone, :). Great card, and no is not "wonky"

  4. This is beautiful! Love your delicate vellum flowers and butterfly! Congrats on figuring out how to post from your phone! I can barely even make a call on my dumb phone!

  5. This is so stunning!!! I love how you have white embossed the vellum and then colored those flowers. They are so delicate and pretty. Love your design too, and that embossed background. Plus, those gorgeous colors!! Your brother will cherish this masterpiece!!! And you have my sympathy with the lack of a laptop. I HATE using my Kindle to type anything. Well done, my dear.

  6. Gorgeous card, love the vellum flowers and butterfly. Posting from phone...I can barely comment with a phone much less do a post!

  7. Well I will tell him your card is most certainly well worth the is STUNNING! I love the blues and the design layout!
