Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

To My Beautiful Friend


Hello, I hope your week is off to a decent start. LeAnne is the hostess this week at The Paper Players and as soon as I saw her sketch I wanted to play along. I love Sketches that have three elements on them and a dividing line. I had this fun blue piece of cardstock in my large stockpile of scraps just waiting to be used and it was the start of my color palette for this card. It was run through a crimper some time ago to give it that texture. I know I am the one that did it, but do you think I can find my crimper now? Nope! I sure hope I didn’t get rid of it. I love the look!

Here is a close-up!

I am also going to link my card up over at Happy Little Stampers -Anything Goes with Dies.

Card Details: Playful Peacock set is from MFT. The two stitched flowers are also from MFT, as is the ric-rac die. I used Copics and just a hint of Prismas for my medium. Crimper for texture on the blue cardstock.

Thanks for dropping by, I am off for a craft date with some friends today! Hope you get to do something fun that brings you joy! Nanc’

  1. So bright and beautiful, Nancy. That crimped blue is stunning with the darling peacock. I haven’t used my crimper in a while and if it was with me I’d get it out after seeing this.

  2. What a striking card! The design with the peacock and the color blue really makes for a marvelous creation.

  3. Oh my goodness, this is so cute! The crimped panel adds so much interest and I love the stitched ric-rac. My late SIL was always on the lookout for a peacock stamp, she would have loved this one!

  4. What a pretty creation! I still have my crimper too…I am thinking you’re going to start a retro trend! Your peacock is colored so beautifully too! The rick-rack trim is so sweet along with those pretty flowers….I just love it all to pieces! Thanks for playing with my sketch this week at the Players!
