You are invited to share with me the Joy there is in creating Art. I mean the "I can do it" and "it's fun" and "it's beautiful" kind of art, whether it is "museum quality" or not. Here you will find some of what I like to do and, I hope, share some of your joy, too.

Welcome to my blog, Rae Ann.

Little Scrap Pieces, Card Patterns & Anything Goes Challenges

I really like this little round card.  I like the sketch at Card Patterns and I decided to make it mostly in blues for the Little Scrap Pieces Challenge.  It fits well with the Anything Goes Challenge, too; 'For the One I Love.'

The base is on cream colored cardstock and the rose was made from a parchment-looking paper.  They were distressed with Wild Honey and Vintage Photo Distress Inks.  The base was cut from the Cricut Graphically Speaking cartridge at 4.5 inches.  The big circle and the five petaled flower that made up the rose were cut from the Cricut George & Basic Shaped cartridge.  The leaves were cut from the Cricut Picturesque cartridge.  I like finding elements from different cartridges to work together.  The center strip is two layers of a Martha Stewart border cut with a piece of edging I found at JoAnn's in between.  The dashes, pearls, and odds and ends finished it off.  I really like it.
