CPS card sketch 234

Thinking of you
Today's card features Graphic 45 Le'Romantique using CPS card sketch 234. I think this paper is fabulous and so fun to work with. When you have such a beautiful collection of papers and a wonderful sketch the card comes together like magic. The rectangles are mounted on an olive green card stock. The MS dove punched from parchment adds a visual focal as the  dreamy eyed woman looks up. The "thinking of you" sentiment was stamped on parchment with an olive green and 3 pearls added to the side. After much consideration I added the peach bow.

CPS 234
 On the inside I used a MS border punch to create a border on the top and bottom using the lovely green/rose base paper, then added a peach strip. I printed a "Happy Anniversary" sentiment using Baroque Script font in a rose color on fine parchment paper to coordinate with the era of the DP. I think this would be considered a very romantic card. What do you think?   

Now I will work on 2 sympathy cards. Not as much fun to make but I will say that as I work on them I keep the person in my thoughts and prayers so it feels especially meaningful.

Finding a quote that speaks to what I've posted- romance and death- took some time and thought but I think this covers it:

Love is a symbol of eternity. It wipes out all sense of time, destroying all memory of a beginning and all fear of an end. ~Author Unknown

  3. GORGEOUS! Every lil' detail is perfection! Ah, How I wish I was close by so I could come play art with you more was soooooo much fun and I hope the memories do not fade too fast from this ol' mind....this 'Wide Open Heart' has you safely locked deep inside and makes me feel whole. I LOVE YOU!
    Peace Out and ART ON!

  4. This one evokes the work of one of my favorite artists, Maxfield Parrish. It is simply lovely!
