Take Care...

Hi everyone! Thank you for stopping by.  Can you believe that we have had another week where the kids did not go to school for a full week? They were out on Wednesday again due to the snow and ice. Nashville is becoming the new Chicago..except our kids stay home in this weather and the Chicago kids do not. :)

Today I am participating in a challenge that I have never tried before...Stampin Royalty. I ran across it while perusing blogs and thought I would give it a go. Here is the great sketch:




And here is my card:



What do you think? I just love this SU patterned paper..it's called Greenhouse Gala and the colors are so rich and fun to use.

You know, I have come to the conclusion that I am secretly yearning for Spring and THAT is why my cards have leaned towards the cheery and sunny lately..lol. That's got to be it  and that's so strange because I am totally a Fall/Winter soul.

Well, that's it from me. Thank you for stopping in and I'll see you tomorrow. Laters..

When i read "Stampin' Royalty" I ran and got my Tiara first :) Yes I LOVE THE PP ..... fantastic colors. I have to say I love how you do your focal images with the shading inside and the cream boarder .... really so beautiful Keva!!!

Mariana said...

What a beautiful shading inside the scalloped circle! I love the way it perfectly coordinates with the great DP! You are not alone in "secretly" yearning for spring!!!

Jen Carter said...

Very pretty! That paper is pretty and the flower is the center is a great accent! Love your pearls!

Kristin said...

Wonderful!! This is one of the best sets from PTI- been waiting for years for something like this. You've done a fab job and I love that paper too :-)

Dana said...

Well I understand the yearning for spring. And that's why I've been drooling over your posts lately. So filled with bright, cheerful goodness. I love the inking on this one. Superb.

Jill said...

Really great get well card--bold, get up and get better colors and springy flowers! That is some awesome DP! Loving how you shaded the flower nestie!

Amy said...

What a gorgeous card...that paper is so lush and amazing! Have I mentioned that I just LOVE how you make your sentiment the center of attention? :)

Cathy Weber said...

Well, Keva, I hope you get your wish for an early Spring! If not, just look back through your blog posts at your beautiful, cheery cards and it should tide you over a bit. This card is really nice. I love how you shaded the focal image, not sure if you sponged it or air-brushed it, but I love it.

Sue Plote said...

Keva, this is an absolutely beautiful card! Love the treatment you gave the focal point, the paper is divine...Awesome!

Jen said...

Another luxe card. The deep, rich colors work fabulously together. The central die cut has been inked to perfection. I hope your channeling of Spring works for you all soon. I'd happily send some of this sweltering Australian Summer your way. How I yearn for a cool breeze...just a weeny one would do.

I'm so glad you stopped by to play this week. You made a fabulous card. I live in Vancouver, and our kids stay home when it snows too. But depending on how you look at it, we don't get a lot of snow, just a lot of rain. Anyway, I digress...
Fabulous job with the sketch. Combining it with this colour combo and DSP really worked perfectly. Thanks for joining us at Stampin' Royalty this week.
