Lace & Handmade Flowers!
So . . . I decided to try something a bit different!! Brace yourselves!! You are about to witness the full extent of my "sewing" abilities!! hehe! Wait for it . . . .
Fabric Flowers!! Cool, huh?!! OK . . . so . . . allow me to introduce you to two of Sassy Cheryl's newest digi images!! Meet "Maddie and her Ladybug" AND "Max and his Ladybug"!! I just couldn't decide which of these two sweethearts to color up this week . . . so I did what any indecisive person would do! I used them BOTH! hehe!! I actually merged these two cutie patooties . . . and erased the ladybugs! Why? Well . . . not because I don't love ladybugs. . . 'cuz I love them plenty!! I just thought that Maddie and Max - sans ladybugs - look like they're sharing some delicious gossip!! Here's a close-up . . .
I have to tell ya, I just love the "vintage-y" look of these new images!! You can find them HERE and HERE in the "New" section of Sassy Cheryl's store!! Now . . . since Maddie and Max look kinda vintage-y to me, I decided to go with a totally "RETRO" feel with this card!! Lime green and teal blue . . . how fabulously retro is that?! And, can ya believe it? I found fabric to match! So . . . retro flowers too! hehe! Here's a bit of a side view . . .
