Same Elements, Three Ways

Although I have always loved this sheet of Beau Chateau Designer Series Paper, I just haven't used it. In fact, it is probably the reason I bought this pack of paper to begin with. However, at my class for retiring products, one of my customers made the comment that this is the sheet she doesn't like. So I just had to take up the challenge and design a card with it, a card that led to three designs. I just love the results and hope she does, too. [Sorry my scanner doesn't always get the top and left edges of the cards, but I'm sure you get the idea.]

The above card is vertical, uses Soft Suede for the frame around the flower and includes one of those untied bows made by scrunching together the two loops with a brad. The card below, however, uses a Pink Pirouette frame and the retiring Chantilly Crochet Trim. The image, however, is from the Fresh Vintage stamp set in our recent Sale-a-Bration catalog and is no longer available. I colored it with Soft Suede and Pink Pirouette markers before stamping on Very Vanilla card stock.

After I made those two cards, I decided to use one of the "scraps" of dsp for a large card. We have run out of cards large enough for everyone in our ABF (Adult Bible Fellowship) to write a note in, so I need to restock our supply. One of our ladies just lost her husband to Alsheimer's Disease, so this card was designed with her in mind.
