PDCC82. WMSC47, CR84FN28, Card Patterns115

Happy Friday , the weather is so nice this week in Seattle and I try to soak up as much Vitamin D as I can. The sunshine makes all the flowers look so much prettier. Have a good news to share : I am Fab 4 of PDCC81, There is a fun color combo this week and hope you play along.

I have two cards to share today. First is for PDCC82 and WMSC47
(Miss the deadline for few minutes. I thought it closed midnight. bummer) 
Here is my card. I want to jump out of my comfort zone and play with some shabby color so I apply Tea Dye distress ink on all the elements, paper, ribbon, rose. Still keep it simple as I always like. What do you think?
I got the inspiration from Jean Martin again to stamp the borders on punch out border. You can see her beautiful  creation Here. What a genius idea and I just have to give it a try.
The border on punched out cardstick is from Waltzing Mouse stamp Very Vintage labels No. 10 , sentiment from Papertrey Ink Big and Bold Wishes.


Second card made for CR84FN28 (Color) and Card Patterns Sketch115 (sketch)

Here is my card. I need a birthday card for a sweet little girl. She is a happy kid and always smiling. You can find sunshine through her smile. This weeks CR84FN color is bright and bold, just perfect for her.
I create the bottom pattern using PTI Background Basics: Retro and marker. Sentiment from PTI Tag-Its#1 and flower from Flower Fusion#1. I also die cut a butterfly out of yellow felt from Spellbinder dies.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend.
Nicky

Both are pretty, but your PDCC card is breathtaking. I just love the simplicity of it, yet it is so elegant and somehow still shabby. :) Thanks for joining us at The Play Date Cafe this week.
