thinking of you

Hi, hope you had a great week. For the most part the weather was great, 80's today, a bit breezy, just perfect and it looks like it is going to be a fantastic weekend as well.  This weekend is a 3 day weekend for us Canadian's, as we celebrate Victoria Day on Monday. I'm so looking forward to the long weekend! 

For our bellariffic challenge this week we had a sketch to follow, and it was a fairly easy one at that, at least I thought so.  This was our sketch:

and this is what I came up with:

Basically no stamping except for 'thinking of you' which was taken from the stamp set: matilda on her swing.

Designer paper is from Prima papers - Tea-thyme 6x6, Dies used are Spellbinders- A2 scalloped borders one, and one of the dies from the 5x7 detailed scallops set.  Finished off with some pearls and a piece of dusty rose ribbon.

Be sure to stop over at bloggabella for me inspiration from this weeks challenge.

Next weeks challenge is another inspiration - see below.

You can get your inspiration from the colours, or the image.  You can email Emily your card by thursday night to be included in the showdown on friday.  Also your name will go in for this weeks draw for $20 in bella bucks!

I guess that's about it for me for today.  Thanks for stopping by, and I really appreciate your comments.  Have a wonderful weekend everyone.  See you again real soon.

Despite the lack of "stamping," this is a beautiful and elegant card -- so feminine. Beautifully done.

Pauline you always have the best dies and use them so beautifully on your cards. This is pure elegance! The scallop and ribbon create a lovely feminine touch. Love it!

Oooh, this is so pretty! I like the long and low look of it and the gorgeous scalloped die and pretty ribbon with the perfect bow. What a great layout for showing off some designer paper you can't bear to cover up. I'll have to keep this in mind. Thanks for the inspiration I always find here!

So pretty Pauline - for a no stamping (almost) card this is gorgeous! Again, you have the most perfect dies and paper - just lovely!!!
