Swing for two!

Here is a card without lace and flowers! I am not entering but I used the challenge sketch from Sketch Saturday which is a really great one for a square card.

I spent hours searching for some very special photos the other day and came across this really old paper pad from K & Co and some sheets of gingham paper. I don't use yellow shades very much so thought I should use a bit of it up. The background layer is on SU So Saffron and then on to white base card.

The image is from LOTV and coloured in with Copic Markers. The wording - also from LOTV is stamped with Memento Cocoa. The star circle is a Spellbinders die that Leigh gave me for Christmas - I love it! That card is SU Pear Pizzaz. The green gems are Annabelle stamps Sprinkles, button and twine are from my stash.

I did find my packet of photos and this one brought back memories of busy times LOL. Here are my three kidlets all those many years ago!

Seriously Jean, this is one of the most perfect cards I've ever seen in all the thousands of cards I've viewed over the last 3 years. The stitching is perfect, the stamping is perfect, the bow is perfect, the layout is perfect, and the coloring is perfect! I'm blown away by this card. Awesome work! Hugs, Curt
