Guest Designer at Liz's Paper Loft **

Hello Everyone and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!!!

I apologize for not commenting or posting much the last few days. I have had a touch of the stomach flu and finally feeling like I can hold my head up again. I hope to get caught up over the weekend:)

I am excited to be today's Guest Designer over at Liz's Paper Loft.  Liz has asked some very talented ladies to fill in while she is recovering from shoulder surgery. I am so honored to participate and to help Liz out. She is amazing and so very talented and hope she gets back to crafty really soon.  Make sure you stop by Liz's blog daily to see all the wonderful talented designers showcasing their work. Thanks again Liz for asking me:) Hugs!

Here is a card that I made using the Elegant Edges cartridge for the base of the card. I welded the two shapes using my gypsy at 5.48 x 8.60. The base layer is cut at 5.13 x 4.19. I then added a layer under the scallop which I used a Martha Stewart lacy punch for the border for some dimension along with distressing it with Tim Holtz-walnut stain. The scallops are from Spellbinders Nestibilities-Lacey Circles again distressed with Tim Holtz-walnut stain. 

I then cut these fun flowers from the Flower Shoppe cartridge at 2 3/4 and the leaves at 1 1/2 and pop dotted them for more dimension. I added a fun sentiment that is from K.Andrew Designs ~Scripture Sayings set. I added a few heart buttons, some fun bling and a satin bow to finish the card up.
Also, Liz has some exciting news to share with you, but not quiet yet. However, in the meantime, while she's recovering, she is reading every comment. Not only is she reading them, she's counting them, because at the end of all this, she will have two announcements!! The first will be a winner of some exciting BLOG CANDY! The second, it's a big one..and no, she's not coming out with just have to wait and see!!
So, pop over to Liz's blog and leave a comment to win some blog candy:)

I am also entering this in the following challenges:
1.) Made Especially For You ~card featuring 3 buttons
2.) My Craft Spot ~Monday challenge #49 Spring them and use Scallops
3.) DL.ART-Thankful Thursday ~flowers
Thanks for visiting,

  2. Beautiful card. Love the colors and those flowers. I tried make rolled paper flowers yesterday, but was unsucccessful. I guess I need to try again. It probably would be easier with this cartridge.
