26 march - card day wth color scheme

I hope you came from Erica's blog  but if not, please head back over there to see more at
Today is Sketch Day using the colors pastel green and pastel Yellow and 1 other color AND using the sketch seen here.

I was excited to remember the Cricut Cartridge 50 States as it has ALL the states flowers..   so using the flower for South Carolina on page 52 and #40 on the overlay. perfect for today as it has these pretty spring colors.  This flower is called Yellow Jessamine.  Flowers cut out at 1.24h and the little ones at 1in h.

purple was my 3rd choice for my colors as I used it as the base of my card and inked using Amethyst ink pad from ctmh.  paper chosen was Amethyst from ctmh.    I chose Buttercup (yellow) and Sweet leaf (green)  both from ctmh

I embossed the leaves using Forest Branches cuttlebug embossing folder.  AND for the flowers I used cuttlebug paper lace 2 flowers.  after embossing I ran a little sandpaper over it to expose the white underneath and then inked it a little using colors matching the papers.

when you are done putting the flower together you get a pretty 3d raised flower.

FRAME: is using Elegant Edges cricut cartridge and cutting out at 5.20w & 5.88w.  Inking the larger frame with buttercup ink pad from Ctmh.   ON the top frame I used Buttercup liquid pearls around some of the edges.
Ribbon is a light green organdy ribbon from Ctmh.

Stamp set sentiment is one of my favorites from Kristal Andrews called Scripture Sayings.  You can see and get this stamp set and more at

Please leave some love and tell me what your favorite flower is...

VINYL projects..

  I am so excited today to be a Guest designer over at  I thank Karey for having me.  Please show her some love by going back over to her blog and leaving a comment and becoming a follower.    We are Also Design team Sisters over at Erica Cricut Craft Room as well.. so an honor to work with her and display my work on her Blog.  THANKS KAREY!

What will I show you today??   I am going to show you the different ideas you can put Vinyl on.   I love Vinyl. Many are intimated by what to do with them.  today, I will show you different things I have used Vinyl on.  perhaps you might have seen a few of my posts from last year..  and hopefully you will see many ideas that are new and give Vinyl a chance.

Imagine Vinyl is very different from Regular shiny vinyl you that you would buy from either Cricut or the other various companies.  You can use Vinyl on clothing, walls, vehicle/ home / business windows, home decor, containers, cards, scrapbooks, school projects, etc.. the list goes on!!  Remember there are different types of vinyl as well...

If I have inspired you today, please go to my e-mail and sign up and become a follower.  I would love to follow you too, let me know if you do by leaving your blog addy.
