Jest Thinking of you...


Hi everyone, I hope you had a fabulous Easter.  I'm back with another new card for your viewing pleasure. This time I stepped out of my box and used colors I rarely use, but always admire when others do! I love color, honestly I do, but my style leans toward the softer hues!

So here is how I put the front of the card together. I just used my own sketch (as far as I know) and used three coordinating papers from my stash together. I have used Jester Tilda available now from Diana in her Magnolia-licious shop. This is a darling collection from Sweden called Prince and Princess - just perfect for children theme's, or as you can see I've used this for a "Jest thinking of you" card. Okay, enough waffling, here is my card...

Here is a closer look at this little cutie...


And...a side view of the card...


Now for a peek at the inside of the card...I hope you'll love my sentiment, which I generated on the computer...hehehehe!


The salutation panel tucked into the pocket...


Panel removed....




This is the entire inside view of the card...



Here is my cock-eyed, artistic view of the card...



That's it for today. I so appreciate your dropping by to visit. Your comments are always so very appreciated and I read every single one of them!
