Do Over!

Hello crafty friends! I have a card to show you today, based on this week's Mojo Monday but with a couple of extra panels thrown in for good measure. Last week, I tried really hard to make these papers work, but alas...the proper stars were not in alignment so I was forced to tuck the design away until a later time. Today is that later time and wow, what a difference from last week...this one went together rather easily:


The middle panel was the one I had already made, I just sewed the perimeter today, added the pearls, sentiment and daisy-chain lace. I tucked two different doilies behind the script panel and lastly added the green twine, which...score! I got from the check-out end-cap at TJ Maxx. The sentiment is from Verve's Love Deepens set.

Here's the sketch:

Here's the Verve set I used:

  13. Really super, Andrea! I've been away from my paper crafting so much that my creations have gotten a bit of a stiff look when I finally get to it. So, I can really appreciate the softness and free feel of your work. It gives me something to reflect on, strive for and take inspiration from... TFS!!!
