Papertake Weekly - Time to get krafty!!

Hey everyone! Monday is overwith (yaaaay!) and it's time for a new challenge from Papertake Weekly! This week, Dawny is asking us all to get krafty with kraft cardstock somewhere on your project. We're sponsored this week by the amazing Mary and Andrea over at The Ribbon Girl, so an awesome prize is up for grabs to one lucky person! Here is what I've come up with for you today

I used this adorable sweetie from the Sweet Crazy Love 2012 collection over at Magnolia-licious. She's #240 Tilda with wrapped heart, and she's the sweetest little thing!! I don't see her in stock right now in the regular size, But Diana does have the mini available here.


She's stamped with Memento ink onto Cryogen white paper and then colored with Copic markers. The DP's are from Nitiwit Collections matted with Bazzill cardstock and kraft paper from PTI. The sentiemnt is also on kraft paper and then cut out with a Spellbinder die.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and that pretty little butterfly is from a trio set of Cheery Lynn Designs dies which was a wonderful gift from my friend Linda! Thank you Linda and see you Friday night! (We're having a Copic Color and Crop til you drop night...can you say FUN??!!!!) The last thing I added were the pearls from a pearl pen. I was totally devastated as the pen dripped onto the bottom of the card as I went to put a single pearl in the bottom right corner next to the flowers. Once it dripped, that was it...there was no getting if off there. So I looked at it and tried to figure out how to cover it up. I wasn't about to ditch the whole card cause everything was stuck down tight and would have been ruined had I tried to take it all apart. So in trying to figure out what I could stick in the corner, I punched some leaves. It covers it mostly, but if you look closely, you can still see the smudge peeking out a little. UGH!  There was something up with that lower right corner as I'd already messed up the punch around the page by pushing down the punch again after already punching the corner. Sometimes, things just don't work out...but we're lucky that we have so many wonderful kinds of embellishments to cover those mistakes up!! LOL!  Uh oh...now I've given up all my mistakes, the person that gets this card will think it's a piece of garbage! LOL! What have I done??!!



So that's it for me today! Please be sure and pop over to Papertake Weekly to check out my DT sister's amazing creations, and then we'd love it if you'd grab your paper and glue and play along with us! Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today, and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs !

Nothing you do could EVER be called garbage & if you hadn't mentioned the ink dripping or your punch messing up no one would ever know. I STILL don't see it.
Sharon anyone that gets one of your masterpieces is so lucky they wouldn't care if it had mustard on it .. This is one sweet card using my "current" favorite Tilda ...
Hugs, Janie

Ruth Ann Hunter said...

A truly sweet card and I love this new Tilda!! As for the pearl pen dripping couldn't find anything wrong anywhere. I'd take this card in heart beat and cherish it as I'm sure anyone else would,too.
Keep them coming as they are always stunning!
hugs, Ruth Ann

she is so adorable

Danielle said...

I totally agree with Janie, nothing you could do could be called garbage. We all make little booboos on a card, it is called MANUAL WORK, and perfection is word attributed to robots, not to human.
Your card fills my eyes and heart with beauty this morning and starts my day very well, as you are the first one I visit. Dear Sharon, I do love so much this little tilda, and you showcased her wonderfully. All the little embellies creates a lovely harmony for tilda, love your bow! big and pink! my favourites.
Have a gorgeous day, Hugs.

cathylynn said...

You card is absolutely gorgeous!! I love it all! I wonder how many mistakes Thomas Kinkade makes or all of the other great artists have made. How do we know that some of the leaves or flowers on their artwork aren't covering up a small BO BOO? Yet when we see their art it all looks so beautiful and professional. I know we are all our own worst critic. I believe some things happen for a reason. And Yes I'm guilty of being very hard on myself too!
Hugs, Cathy-Lynn
