I just love you 26

Hi! Today Angie and I are driving to Tucson to browse around the Tucson Gem Show which is the 2nd largest gem show in the country. We're both hoping to find something sparkly ;) I set my paints and palette aside to make some room on my desk to create a rather simple Valentine's Day card for one of my sisters. Sometimes it's overwhelming to me how many supplies it takes to create just one card. 
When we moved nearly a year ago, I downsized a lot of my papercrafting supplies donating them to Angie's college fund garage sale :) Over the years, I had accumulated a ridiculous amount of papers, stamps and dies from various companies I had designed for or purchased myself that I no longer had the desire to hang on to. I saved a few bins of patterned paper including the prints that I used to create this card. I don't know who makes it or how old it is, I love it anyways :) I made a felt flower with beautiful PTI felt that seems to cut like butter in the die cut machine!
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the paper players challenge:
Thanks so much for visiting ~ I hope you have a great weekend!
Be Sweet ;)

Beautiful card Mona. Nice detail matching the circle placement to the background. It looks awesome! Thanks for joining us this week at the Paper Players.

I love looking at your paintings but a card as gorgeous as this is also amazing to see. Great idea to sell the stuff for a very good cause; raising money to enable college for your daughter. Following you for quite some time I know that you worked a long list of amazing brands and manufacturers. I got an idea how much it must have been. And yes; sometimes when you make just one card your creatvie space ends up a creative disaster with supplies everywhere:)

Mona this card is fabulous! The papers are so sweet, and I love the felt flower. I'll have to check out that PTI felt. I am constantly trying to purge too, but it's a never ending task as I keep purchasing more. I'm going to have more self control in 2016... So glad you joined us at The Paper Players!
