{Free Time}


Do you ever have cards that just don't seem to turn out the way you envisioned, but then out of nowhere you try something different and everything falls into place? Well, that is what happened to my card today! I started working on my card for the weekly sketch at "Card Patterns", and after trying a few different elements it just didn't look right. So I went to bed. Today when I finally got Connor to take a nap (like 30 mins ago and it is now 2:17, lol) I sat at my craft table and added a few embellishments and whadda ya know, I LOVED it! For my card today I used DSP from the new DCWV stack "Pearls and Lace." I created the flower with my Cricut, and SCAL (Sure Cuts Alot) and added vintage, ribbon, and pearls. The sentiment is from the PTI set "Everyday Button Bits".  The embossed layer is from the Cuttlebug "Romance" set which I sanded with a sanding block.  I used the Eyelet Circle Nestabilities behind the paper pieced flower. I LOVE the shabby chic look of this card and I hope you will to! Today I am playing along with the following challenges:
