Yeah for Stephanie Kraft! And how perfect is her name in more than one way?! Stephanie has a gorgeous gallery, full of sweetly feminine and beautiful cards and I was able to finally zero in on this one here. I incorporated stitching, vintage papers, a pearl flourish and flowers...just like Stephanie's creation, but I changed out the sentiment, used a different design (Waltzingmouse's sketch for this week) and I also used different papers. I added a bit of influence from this week's Inspiration challenge from Artful Whimsy. When I saw this tag here, I fell in love! I added a taste of flowing ribbons and fabric flowers to my card as well.
Enjoy your day Stephanie!

Andrea, you use embellishments incredibly...they look so perfectly and naturally placed and I think of how I have to move things around about 100 times before I can get any sort of pleasing combo of them...amazingly beautiful in color and layout too!

Oh Sistah....here you are, oozing with soft loveliness again! Andrea, really your cards call me out! I would love to just watch you make a card someday, (from that windowsill of course, sipping on a cup of something coolish!) Gorgeous case my friend, a blessing for Stephanie! Hugs...
