True Beauty

*****Happy Hello to all of you who got here via Moxie Fab World!  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you stick around for a bit and enjoy the views on other posts too!  :)  Please comment below so I can visit you too!

Hi Everyone!  Anyone spending oodles of time on Pinterest lately?  This past weekend found me googly eyed from too much screen time.  Why do I mention this?  The inspiration!  I saw so many uber gorgeous cards with luscious layers that I've been itching to make a really layered card!  When I saw card sketch from Mojo Monday I knew I had to give it a go. :)


The Bo Bunny goodies that Charlie sent me from The Hen's Den are perfect for layers!  There is such depth to the patterning of the papers and such rich colors that all I needed to do was cut and paste.  You are looking at a 10 minute card that looks like it took hours.  Jackpot!  Is that too excited sounding for a line called Serenity?!? LOL!


The base of the card is some kraft cardstock with all the layers getting 1/8" border, although mostly the borders are freehand.  The sentiment is from the Serenity Cardstock Stickers.  I adhered it to some black cardstock and freehand cut the border.  The border gives it that extra pop!  I used the same black cardstock on the Tomoko paper.  The bunting was freehand cut from Serenity scraps.  I curled the edges up for extra dimension. 

Ooooh, can't you see this as a card that Sybil from Downton Abbey would have sent.  Oh poor Sybil. Such a sweet and kind girl!  I went through half a box of tissues on Sunday night!


The goodies from The Hen's Den that helped create this goodie:
Bo Bunny- Serenity- Inspiration Cardstock Stickers
Bo Bunny- Serenity- Jewels 
Bo Bunny- Serenity- Trinkets
Bo Bunny- Serenity- Tomoko
Bo Bunny- Serenity- Luck

I'm being meditative with this card at these challenges:

  4. First--I couldn't wait for my browser to load the page entitled, "fuzzyslippersdesigns!"
    Second--I totally resemble the remark about Pinterest! [hee hee!]
    Third--I wholeheartedly agree about Sybil for the card [which is just lovely by the way] and for their killing her off! Daughter and I have been trying to get over it all week!
    And finally, it's always wonderful to see how others put their own stamp on life!

    I am hearing so much about Downton Abbey, but haven't watched it. Might need to tune in and see if I can catch up!
