A Card for Grammy...or Super Baba...or...

In my previous post, I shared one of the cards made for my sister-in-law's mom - Grammy - or, depending on what she decides - for Grammy's mom - Super Baba.  Today, is the debut of the second card, which was sparked by  retrosketches #51, combined with the Spring colours of Muse Challenge #5.  Or, perhaps it was the inspiration of Muse Challenge #5, using retrosketches #51. Whatever the case, I hope you like this 'partner' card - and I hope Grammy, or Super Baba, will, too.

Here's the sketch,

and here is the bright, bold, beautiful Muse inspiration, from Marion Vagg:

My card:
The paper is from Echo Park's Scoot collection..."meant" for boys but I love how wonderfully 
the colours fit the 'girl', or rather, 'grandma' theme.

I'll be sharing these cards 'in person' with my sister-in-law tonight; hope she LOVES them...and I wonder what the final 'destination decisions' will be.  These challenges are awesome!!

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I hope you enjoy what you see...


  1. Very pretty. That paper is just too cute. Great take on Marion's card. Nice! Bev

  2. You've captured the colors in the Muse card so well. Such a pretty card!!!

  3. Hi "C". Drop me an email, and we'll chat! It's always good to have blogfriends. Still coming back to your card. It really is quite lovely. Bev : )

  4. Love your card--the flowers are fabulous!

  5. Beautiful! Those flowers are perfect!!! :)


  6. Carol this is BEAUTIFUL! So so beautiful! The layered flowers are gorgeous, and your patterned paper choices for them (and the rest of the card!) are perfect!! And I love the detail of putting the butterfly in between the two hearts on the side! I am in LOVE with this card! And you mastered the combination between the two challenges too! I know these cards are going to be LOVED by Grammy and Super Baba...but don't be surprised if your sister-in-law just wants to keep them all to herself!!!

    How was your visit?!! Filled with fun, cuddles and lots of love I'm sure! What a treat to spend time with your family. If they are anything like you (and I'm sure they are!), I can't imagine a more delightful place to be!

    I am going through a little challenge withdrawl! I haven't made a card for almost a week (gasp!). I plan to change that today!! Hope you have a lovely weekend and safe trip back!

    Talk soon ;)

  7. Did we just have some telepathy?! I think we just left comments for each other at the exact same time!!!
