Madison Avenue and Vine Street

Happy Saturday, and welcome to my blog! Grab your cup of coffee and check out the card I created for this week's Utah Divas International sketch. You can find links to all of the cards and designers here. This month's sketches were designed by team member Elizabeth Harris. Hasn't she done a fabulous job with the sketches? Here is the sketch for the week, DIVASC225.

And here is my card! It uses some sweet things from the Sale-a-Bration catalog! (Products marked with * were free!)

Here's the recipe~
  • Stamps ~ Madison Avenue*
  • Papers ~ Whisper White, Raspberry Ripple, Pretty in Pink, Lucky Limeade
  • Inks ~ Pretty in Pink, Lucky Limeade
  • Accessories ~ Lucky Limeade ruffled ribbon, Vine Street embossing folder*, Big Shot
This is also part of a color challenge over at Create With Connie & Mary, CCMC236.  Isn't it a great combination?

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great weekend, and I'd love to hear your comments before you go!

  4. Great use of the challenge colors. Very clever way to interpret the sketch! All in all a great card. Thanks so much for joining us this week at Create with Connie & Mary.

  5. This is beautiful!!!!!! I love the colors and I love how you used the Dahlia embellishment as a little pop of color!

  6. I like the clean & simple lines in your card. The embossing is perfect for the backdrop to your stamped layer! Thanks for playing Create with Connie & Mary!

    Would you consider turning off word verification so that it makes it easier for us to leave comments for you?

  7. Such a pretty little card! I love the dahlia added to the center for a "pop" of color! Thanks for joining us in the Thursday Challenge at Create With Connie and Mary!

  8. Really cute Barbara! I'm so glad you joined our color challenge this week at Create with Connie & Mary!

  9. WOW--this card is so fabulous! I love your interpretation of the sketch challenge by using the TIEF--that's so smart. I am happy you joined our color challenge this week at CCMC. Smiles, Elizabeth

  10. Sweet, simple and totally DARLING!!! I love simple designs that pop and yours really does! Thanks for playing along this week in the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!

  11. Love this FUN card! Great use of those little blossom buttons (whatever they are called! lol!) Thanks for playing along with the color challenge this week on Create with Connie and Mary!

  12. Love your card! what size is the embossed area? I used 5 1/4" x 4" and my embossing folder wouldn't fit the whole length with the pattern going vertical. I hope that makes sense? Can you give the dimensions to me please. thanks.

    1. I embossed only the top half of the paper in the folder. Then I carefully lined it up in the folder to emboss the bottom half. I hope that makes sense.
