Stella and Rose - Just call me Mabel!

Happy Friday! The last few weeks have been a major cramp in my crafting fun. We had so many events going on with my kids' school that I didn't have time to do anything much less take a picture of it.... until today. I recently purchase a paper pack from My Mind's Eye called Stella and Rose (Mabel) and it sat neglected while I was so busy. It was calling to me; and when I answered it gave me so much crafting pleasure! I love when I see certain colors and visions of papercrafting float around in my head. :)

I really like the layout of this card based on this week's Cards Pattern Sketch (#113). It was just the right layout and a super fun challenge. The color choices came from the colors in the paper pack. Super easy, right? And I just love that it has a blend of a couple of different styles.

Here's the list on the goodies I used:

Cardstock - Lagoon (Bazzill), Stella and Rose --Mabel (MME)
Inks - Vintage Photo (TH), New Canvas (PTI)

Stamp - Doily image (on the blue tag) is from Stella and Rose (MME)

Fibers - Lace - Mabel Little Lady Trims (MME), Natural Twine and Satin Ribbon (PTI), Aqua Organdy Ribbon (picked up at Joann's in a bin). I used my sewing machine to stitch along a border.

Other accessories - Vintage Buttons (PTI), Hanging Charm is from my girlfriend's stash of doodads.

Thanks for stopping by!
