Thinking of You...Time Out Challenge #4, STAMPlorations May Challenge, Crazy 4 Challenges: Flower, Simon Says Monday Challenge: Yellow

Oh yeah..I'm back with another quick post for my second card that I tinkered with this week.  Originally inspired by Time Out Challenge #4: CASE Virginia Lu with Your Own Twist (swooning over Virginia's card...)


it's also off to:

STAMPlorations May Challenge: Stamps and Flowers (heaven knows we are ready to see flowers around here!!!)




My card - and a first time attempt at a loop-de-loop around my flower. I think I need more loopies for a fuller loopy effect...(speaking of loopy...pick me!).  May need to do renovations before this card heads out...


Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments make my day!

I'm out of the loop but you sure aren't with this card! It's beautiful and a gorgeous take on the inspiration piece!

I really like your loops! That patterned paper is so perfect on this card and the thread- nicely done. So glad to have found you through the Simon Says Stamp challenge.

So pretty, spring-like, and overall delightful, Carol ... including the loop de loops! What great use you made of that unexpected Sunday! Hugs, Anita :)

Geri said...

Your loop-de-loops are perfectly delightful! Anything loopier would surely have stolen the limelight away from that gorgeous blossom...great job pulling the tan/kraft color from the DP! The scalloped border looks awesome!

Dana said...

Hiya Loopy! I actually knew a girl in High School who's nick name was Loopy. Very sweet card. And I'm adoring that bloom! Love the colors you've chosen for it. It really compliments all your other papers so well. Love this!! Glad you got home safely. Bev

Don't touch a thing! No renos required - nope, not a one!! Love, LOVE it just the way it is (suddenly I'm hearing Billy Joel in my head!). It's beautiful, Carol - and your loop-de-loo - super awesome!! How do you keep nailing all of your "first trys"?!!

Kim S said...

I have tried many times with the loopy thing and failed every time!

I am in love with your colors and patterns! It's all just a perfect backdrop for the gorgeous flower!

Brenda said...

I don't think your card needs any renovations Carol and your loop-de-loops look fabulous!! Now I would have made a hot mess of them myself. lol I love your take on the Virginia's card, the colors are so beautiful-loving that pattern paper!! I love your scallop border in that touch of yellow-perfect! And of course you know how much I love that flower. lol That flower is so pretty! And your loop-de-loops couldn't be anymore perfect my friend. You just leave this card alone and no renovations! I want to thank you for all your sweet comments on my blog-you are just too kind to me!! Big hugs
