Thanks Tuesday Trigger, Crepe Bouquet

Okay, you're not going to believe this but I managed to make a card without using a Paper Smooches image!  Now I didn't say sentiment...but hey I am trying!  Today I have a shabby little number inspired by the latest Tuesday Trigger, Crepe Bouquet.  So soft and pretty...

I found a pretty peach colored piece of patterned paper in the Webster's Pages Life's Portrait/Lullaby Lane pack, which I distressed with ink and my fingernail.  Die cut the pattern on the back side with scallops, then  added some lace trim and adhered the panel to a cream card base.

Using yellow felt, I die cut and layered the pieces to make a flower and placed it on top of leaves I stamped and cut out.  Lastly, I stamped my Paper Smooces sentiment and adhered some pearls.

Here is the pic:

So I also wanted to share some really fun news!  The fabulous Lisa Hjulberg has opened a darling new store, The Craft's Meow and I am apart of it, as in on her Design Team!   So excited to be working with some really talented papercrafters!  Be sure to check out the Facebook fan page here and the blog, here!  Her store will carry fabulous card kits, embellishments and many other crafty goodies and of course STAMPS.  Thanks for sharing in my excitement, your going to love these stamps, I know I do!
