Check out these cute shoes that are our inspiration for this months hop! Love how sweet they are, and had fun putting my card together.
The stripe I used, is new printed vellum. The flowers are the Scribble Circle dies, with buttons for the centers. I even took inspiration from the inside of the shoes for my sentiment, using Over/Under Easy with the pretty scroll on the bottom and top, embossed with gold.

I went for a Sympathy card for this week's technique challenge from Dawn. I used Fine Linen card stock and ink for the base, and Boutique Borders Sympathy for the sentiment. I had stamped the first set of flowers with Smokey Shadow, and it just took away from the softness of a sympathy card. So I tried again, using Kraft and Fine Linen leaves, and liked it a lot better. The blooms (from Garden Grace) are Berry Sorbet, stamping off once for the flower centers.
Great way to use unlikely colors on a card!

A fun and easy technique this week for making condensation on our projects. I chose to add my droplets onto my roses, as well as a few on my vase.
I was inspired to create a card for for my daughter in law, by this post from Melissa Phillips.
I loved the gingham mixed with the tiny flower print. I made my own print, using the flowers in Graceful Greetings, and the gingham is from the Chicken Skratch paper pad.

I I absolutely love the new Plaid Builder from PTI. I got to play with it, and another new favorite, Watercooler Talk, because a co-worker is going to another department and I won't see him a a regular basis now.
