All the Desires of Your Heart

St. Pat’s Fact:  St. Patrick explained that the shamrock had three leaves just like God had three personas - The Father, The Son and the Holy Ghost. This was called the Trinity. Before the Christian era it was a sacred plant of the Druids of Ireland because its leaves formed a triad.


Good morning!!  This card uses some of my fun new paper from Graphic 45.  I love the Card Positioning Sketch this week and wanted to make a huge tag out of the front panel.  It was so fun to make another little ticket to staple onto the card (sorry Marisa! I know you said you didn’t want to see another staple!).  I also tried to be a little adventurous and use 2 different kinds of stitching to frame the card…I love that look :)  Thanks for visiting!! Have a fabulous day :)

Edited to add: this card has distressed sides along the kraft panel so I’m entering it into the PTI Make It Monday challenge :)



what’s in it?

stamps: pti fillable frames #4, signature series dress form, just the ticket

ink: versafine onyx, su bermuda bay, soft sky

paper: pti cream, kraft, graphic 45 dp

accessories: pti fillable frame and ticket dies, staples, seam binding ribbon, pit buttons, thread, stitching, lace trim, su corner ticket punch

Aaaaack, they are following me everywhere, even into blog land LOL! Thanks for my morning smile :)

Great take on the sketch. Love the sentiment die and pop of rusty /orange seam binding. Speaking of which, where do you get yours? Great card as always :)

Oooh so much going off on this card, Diva! I can't stop looking at it as I see something new and fabulous everywhere I look on it! Great use of that new DP too - keep on using it because I need inspiration to use up my huge stash of it before we move next week LOL!

Holy moly! What a fabulous bunch of layers. You really must teach me your amazing seam binding beautification. =)

I'm sure Marisa didn't mind - this card's a beauty!

Oh now I really do love this one. I realized this weekend that I do not have 1, nope not a single one- St Pat's stamp. That is a shame isn't it? LOL- well you definately make up for me. :)
