Thinking Trendy!!!

You have to go over to the lovely and amazingly talented Karen's Blog and check out her absolutely GORGEOUS, STUNNING and FABULOUS card!!!!! Oh my goodness... the minute... nope the second I saw this card, I just... well I'm still speechless and I still have to sneak on over to her place to have another looksie. Did you see the Bow... isn't it just the most perfect little bow you've ever seen??? Even more amazing is that while Karen was tying said bow she was actually chatting with me at the same time... I told you she was clever!!! (Hello there Karen... I'm waving at you.. haha)

I loved this card soooo much that I told Karen I was definately going to have to CASE it... well I did, But I also told her that I'd do it in a different colour scheme... and I did that too... so do you want to see what I did? By no means is it anywhere near as lovely as Karen's but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I mean, how can you go wrong with such a LOVELY stamp set like Trendy Trees. It's by far one of my most favourite sets.

Ok... well here it is:-

I've used Regal Rose, Apricot Appeal, Certainly Celery and Garden Green as my colour scheme. Let me begin by saying that I have NEVER used Apricot Appeal or Garden Green before, so if nothing else, I'm very proud of myself for that. hahaha.

The row of trees is stamped in Regal Rose and Pink Pirouette and the sentiment also from Trendy Trees is in Close to Cocoa. I used some delicious Regal Rose Wide Grosgrain Ribbon and tied my own Bow, again, doesn't even come close to Karen's little bundle of 'bow perfection' but not too bad considering my game of netball today saw me end up with not only an extremely sore hip but a lovely cork to my calf, so sitting is somewhat painful, and tying a bow... well that can be even more painful!!! hahaha. Sorry I am digressing,.. the button is from the Buttons Latte collection. The row of trees on the bottom of the card are stamped in Regal Rose.

I hope you like it and I'm sure you will just ADORE Karen's version. It truly is Perfection!!!

Thanks for dropping by and I'll be back soon with more.
