RS #23

Another fun sketch at RetroSketches this week.  I have an anniversary coming up this month so I am likely going to be posting a few cards until I find the perfect one to give my hubby.

For my card I used the Linen and Canvas Impression Plate from PTI.  Looks gorgeous here on my desk but as I have heard so many say it does not show up in photographs well.




All Supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock: White, Pure Poppy
Stamps: Background Basics Circles
Ink:  Pure Poppy
Impression Plates: Linen and Canvas
other: mini playing cards. foam dots

Genius! Either this is a super huge card or those are some really cute mini playing cards. Either way, I love it, Tracey!

Tracey...you are so clever with using the heart playing cards for your design! I really like how that turned out...you covered all the bases...the King and the Queen and hearts! Lovely! thank you for the sweetest compliment on my card...I don't know anyone who pins my cards!! You have honored me!

Thanks you friend for your kind comments on my Christmas tree card. Is your card really cards? I have a discontinued set that is cards in my sale pile. Just curious. Very cute though. Hugs my friend. Bev

Cute, cute card. ;-) Love the face cards and all the little hearts - certainly speaks love! ;-)

Joyce said...

What a cute idea with those playing cards. Another thing to add to my list of fun things to have to craft with. I'm sure that your hubby will love this card, and happy anniversary to you both. Anything fun planned?

Oh Tracey, love it!! The red circles look fantastic with those cute cards! I picked up a pack of cards (not mini like yours though) from a garage sale for 5 cents ... can't wait to play with those.

What a great anniversary card ~ I don't think you need to make anymore. This is a great take on the challenge!

Michelle said...

How adorable are those little playing cards for your card accents and I just used that same impression plate yesterday, LOVE it but it is subtle!
