Guest Designer at Die Cuttin Divas

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I am happy to be sharing my card at Die Cuttin Divas this week as the guest designer! Many thanks to Georgiana for asking me! Challenge #269 features a pretty sketch. Playing with the sketch, I chose pretty K&Company patterned papers for the background papers. The card measures 4 1/4" wide x 5 1/2" high and is cut from cream Recollections cardstock.

Cricut Cartridges:
Spring Fling - Flower is cut 2.89" wide x 2.5" high from Colorbok Pearlescent pink and green papers. Cricut Midnight pen was used for drawing the lines on the flower and leaves.
Using Insert Shapes feature in Cricut Design Space, a 4" wide x 5 1/4" high rectangle was cut from the plaid paper for the card base mat. Green check paper is cut 3.1" wide x 4.25" high. The circle is cut 3.75" from the blue dot patterned paper. After aligning the circle on the mat, I cut off one edge of the circle so it will resemble the sketch. Edges of the papers were frayed a little before attachment.
Anna's Garden Cards and Embellishments - Warm Wishes Sentiment is printed on the 4" wide x 3" high patterned paper. This is used inside the card.

Sentiment Love is from CARDZ TV Encouraging Thoughts. Many thanks to Mary!
Pearls and a crinkle ribbon bow are added for the finishing touches. Thanks to Karen at Little Scrap Pieces for the pretty ribbons.

Inside the card.

I just noticed the word THE lacks part of the letter...glad I noticed the error and can make a correction before mailing the card!! It shows in Design Space, but pen did not make the mark. Technical difficulties, I guess!!

Check out all the pretty projects by the design team at Die Cuttin Divas. Hope to see you playing along with the sketch challenge.
Again, Thanks to Georgianna and design team for letting me be the guest designer and playing with this pretty sketch!

Thanks for your visits and comments!
