Rows of Three



A very Good Morning to you all, it's Saturday which means time for a new challenge at Allsorts which my lovely teamie Jo would like to see 'Three in a Row'.

Our sponsors this week are Stitchy Stamps and Pretty Little Ribbons, so two cards from me using products from both.

The one at the top has been stamped with Penny Black 3381K Aspire and Hero Arts K5313 Silhouette Ivy onto Bo Bunny DP using second generation stamping with Adirondack black and butterscotch. The focal sentiment is Penny Black 3157H Growing Free.............I just love the wording on this one..........matted and layered on to Nesite circles and picot edging. The side border is Spellbinders Fleur de Lis, three roses (my row of three on this one, hope that fits OK Jo) cut with Marianne dies and yellow seam binding from Sarah at Pretty Little Ribbons (link to her store on my sidebar)


My second share uses a floral wreath from Stitchy Stamps which I printed onto Fabriano watercolour card and coloured with Aquamarkers. I printed one of the flowers a second time and decoupaged at the bottom. of the circle of flowers. My 'three in a row' on this one are the three butterflies and punched flowers on the bottom section of my easel card which has been covered with American Crafts DP.

Am entering the top card into Pretty Little Ribbons Spring Colours challenge.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

The first one is my favourite here - I particularly like the way you have matted the central circular die-cut to give extra scalloping & enhanced it with those pearls. The black ruffled ribbon is a lovely touch. The trail of the butterflies in the second gives a lovely sense of movement & I like the way the circular pattern of the paper is carried through by your stamped wreath.

Love them both!
I really like the colors on the first one....who'd a thunk it!
The easel card is amazing......you're probably enabling me to put those dies on my list!

Beautiful cards! I love the trail of the butterflies and that gold and grey and black card is just stunning!

Perhaps it is my computer but I find the printed post really hard to read over the musical note side backgrounds. I usually have to read your posts 2 or 3 times to figure it all out. It seems like your side margins are set too wide. I asked to other family members to read it and they had the same problem.

Two beautiful cards...so love the sentiment on the first card. And such a wonderful shaped easel card...that is a pretty floral frame too.

Two lovely cards but especially the second one - beautiful.

Oh Brenda...this is so much better!!!
Now I see a lovely mottled pink background with a couple of lovely butterflies. Maybe it was my computer...I noticed it before but didn't want to appear rude...Finally thought I would mention it this week as I was really struggling.

Just wanted to say again how gorgeous that yellow and grey and dark grey card is! It has really caught my eye!
