CDS Sneak Peeks Day Three - Flowers & Verses

Hasn't this been fun so far?? I love this release!! Do you have a wish list started?? I do! Today I have a card with Ladybug Flower and the sentiment Don't Let it Bug You. I think we could all use a card with that on it from time to time! I actually pulled these colors from an "inspiration book" that I keep on my desk. It has color combos with pictures from old SU catalogs, sketches from blogs I visit and some other project ideas. I don't keep up with it very well, but every once and awhile I remember it and add to it. The colors I used were sand, moss, red, suede, and brocade. I sponged some lines on the moss for a background and used my deckle nesties and swiss dots cuttlebug folder on the brocade. I even used hardware! :-) The ladybug is colored with copics, surprise, surprise!! LOL!!

I think this card is one of my favorites from this release. It's so clean and simple. Lots of white space - but it really sets off the verse... Luke 1:37. The vase of flowers is from an older CDS set called Thankful for You. I paper pieced the vase, and then colored the flowers with Copics.

Be sure to see all the other fun creations from the other designers! See you here tomorrow for the last day of peeks and another of my favorite cards!
