Raise the Bar Guest DT

Happy Friday Everyone! I know I've been a little AWOL lately, but I've got all this DT work I've got to do before I can get on to "my" stuff, and quite frankly I'm a bit of a slow crafter, but pretty soon you'll be tired of seeing my cards, lol. Anyway, you may remember last week I made top 3 at Raise the Bar and that got me a guest DT spot for this week, thanks Joni! Ok, so the theme this week is "U R" Looking Good and what that means is make a card based on your cool is that...I thought it was just a fab idea! I MAY have gone a little overboard here, but I love the card so you'll just have to live with it! :) Sooo, here's my card...
OMGosh, I had sooo much fun making this card...well, except when I ran out of tape, lol! You may be thinking this looks nothing like my blog, sorry, I don't have polka dot papers in my stash. However, I did use colors that you can find on my blog and I think my blog is a little shabby chic like this card(i think). My layout does follow the current CLP sketch( well, I added the flowers and butterflies, but otherwise were good). Sorry I forgot to get a pic of that sketch, but you can find it here.

This is Tilda with Peony from the wedding collection...had this one stamped out for forever and she just called out to me for this! She is colored with copics which I will list later and though you can't tell very well in the photo(if you look closely by the white flower you can tell a little bit) I pinked up her background with pebbles chalk.

These awesome butterflies were made with my cricut Lacy Labels cart, as was the sentiment. Those pretty DP's are from the Basic Gray Porcelain collection.

"The Flowers" Oh' how I agonized over these! This grouping consists of Magnolia, Prima, and Wild Orchid flowers. The other 'stuffing's' are from my local Hobby Lobby...I practically live at that place, lol! Well, that's it, I'm done I hope you liked it! I will be back tomorrow with my first Creative Inspirations post and I think you're gonna like that one, well, I hope so at least, so stay tuned. Thanks for stopping by!

Have a FAB day!
