Papercraft Star Sketch Challenge

Good Saturday morning!  With such ugly weather predicted for this weekend I plan on doing a lot of card crafting!  I finished this one last night.  I used some patterned paper from The Luxury Stack by DCWV.  The patterned paper has a variety of soft pastels.  In person they are so pretty, but in photos...well I'm afraid my picture just doesn't do it justice.  I used the sketch from Papercraft Star's blog challenge for this week.  There's a great tutorial for making tissue flowers on the blog that I just had to try out. You can try your hand at making these flowers yourself by viewing the tutorial here.  Each week the challenges are creative and fun.  I love that they post the challenges for the months ahead in the challenge tab of the blog giving readers plenty of time to participate.  I hope everyone has a great and safe weekend, and thanks for taking a peek.

  1. Your card is fabulous! I love the soft pastel colors, the font of the sentiment, the heart, and the gorgeous ribbon!

    And your flowers are beautiful! I'm so happy you were able to create them using my tutorial! It made my day to see you create so many of them!

    Glad you joined us again this week at Papercraft Star!

  2. Wow, I love those those flowers too ! I have the same issue with that particular paper - it is amazingly beautiful, and it photographs not so well. I think the shimmer and richness of the paper adds so much to the card. Thanks for playing with us this week at Papercraft Star - I always enjoy seeing your creations !!

  3. What a lovely, lovely card! It's just so soft and delicate. Gorgeous!! Great job with the flowers too!
