If you think they look good on the screen it is nothing compared to how nice they are in person, you can get your own HERE!!! I would highly encourage checking them out. I had an idea in my head of what I wanted to do with them, but since they have arrived and I got to see them in person that has all changed LOL! My first thought was of my Grandma when I saw them. She just hosted Easter and she is really a neat woman. Izzy loves her very much and it is neat that she takes the time to do something special with her. So I went over to the Paper Blooms Blog and saw that they have a new challenge posted. What a great time to use my first pretty.
I knew after Easter that Grandma needed a card. My Grandfather passed away 3 1/2 years ago now. I also had the paper bloom challenge and the Verve release week sketches in mind. The hardest part was a title or sentiment that started with B.....until I thought of Beautiful you from Verve. Then it hit me. How many times does Grandma get called beautiful now a days? Not nearly as many times as when Grandpa was here that is for sure and what girl dosen't love to be told they are beautiful? Here is the sketch that can be found here.
This is my take on the two challenges.
What do you think? I am really liking it and I think my Grandma will love it. Some of the neat, but hard to see details are the paper piercing around the main image and the bling on the butterfly to match the center of the flower.
It's a good life!
