elegant thanks

Monday, already?!?  This is going to be a lightning quick post.  I sometimes wonder if I blather on too long, when really, I should just get right down to the reason you're all here.  Cards.  Or, is it Papertrey?  Then again, can we have one without the other?

This baby was yet another PC leftover that used one of their top 3 sketches.  If there's something this call has taught me is that just because it doesn't get published, doesn't mean your card is NOT worthy of being shared.  In fact, the "reject" I posted on Saturday sold yesterday from my Etsy shop.  WooHoo!!

Not sure who'll get this gem.  I am so in love with this felt flower (LOVE this colour combo, too), that it'll be hard to sell or give away.  But, I've put it up on Etsy and am crossing my fingers.  Have a good rest of the day and I'll be back tomorrow with my Make It Monday card.  Hopefully.

Suzanne, I love how that TT felt flower really pops away from the gray and the embossed TANL foliage. :) Stunningly beautiful. :)

This is so pretty, Suzanne. I really like the color combo. I just got Turning a New Leaf a couple of weeks ago and have only used it once. I need to get it out and play!

This is a beautiful card Suzanne! I love the pop of colour from the felt flower. Love the ticket strip with the sentiment too. I've loved looking over some of the 'rejects' that didn't get picked up from the call - they deserve to be celebrated!

Suzanne.........Your rejects are my "wishes." My goodness you create such beauties! Too bad PC! You missed another beautiful card! Love the colors and the felt flower. Very pretty!

Suzanne, I really admire your heat embossing. I can't ever get an even coat like that. Beautiful card!
