More Fresh Cuts ...and my talented daughter

Hi all! Hope you're enjoying your Sunday morning!

When I saw the inspiration piece that Steph chose for yesterday's inspiration challenge on SCS, I couldn't wait to play. I combined it with Taylor's Sketch Challenge TECC19.

I love all the soft colors in the room. There were three different angles of the room to choose from. I chose this piece for the colors of blue, white, green and yellow; the yellow flowers against the white headboard; and the silver accents.

Here's my card from that inspiration piece. I cut a piece of Bashful Blue to 7.5" x 9.25" and folded in half. This fits nicely in a standard #10 envelope. The entire white panel on the Bashful Blue base is up on dimensionals, the green nestabilities circle is up on a second layer, and then the white Fresh Cuts circle is up on a third. It's a pretty *puffy* card...but I love dimensionals! Don't you?

Recipe ~
Stamps: SU Fresh Cuts, SU Warmest Regards
Paper: Bashful Blue, Whisper White, Certainly Celery
Ink: So Saffron, Certainly Celery
Accessories: White Satin Ribbon, Silver Brads, Circle and Scallop Circle Nestabilities, Dimensionals

I'd also like to share something that DD#1 drew late last night.

She pulled up this photo of DD#2 (awwwww!) and sketched it!!...has she got talent or what?!?! I sooooo wish I could draw like she can (thank God for stamps!!). I asked her to do a sketch of herself next so I can frame both sketches and hang them in our living room.

Love it, Peanut!! I'm so proud of you!!

My DH went to the Pocono race with his buddies today, so I think us girls are going to go out for lunch...maybe Olive Garden or something like that. It's supposed to go up to 95 degrees who wants to cook!

Enjoy your day. I'm hoping to get to the Featured Stamper Challenge later today as well.

Denise, your card is gorgeous! I love dimension too ;)

Oh my word, your daughter is fabulously talented! Amazing! Does she do this for a living or is it a hobby?

Have a great day with the girls! I'll be watching the race and stamping!

Your daughter is incredibly talented. How old is she? She should start designing her own line of stamps. If she sketches a portrait of herself you've got to post it. Also, I love your beautiful card, heck, I LOVE your blog. I can see where your daughter gets her creative talent from.

Your little one is so cute (she looks like you)! Your older daughter is a fabulous artist! Maybe she should go into some kind of art works instead of dog grooming. She is awesome!

Happy Sunday!

OMG Denise that is amazing. She is very talented. Is she persuing art? She should submit some of her work to a few of the stamp companies. They're always looking for new talent. The drawing she did on your sidebar is gorgeous. Love the colors and your card. :)
