By now, you have probably guessed that SU Simply Sketched is my favorite set in the new catalog! Actually, I may have told you that already. I wanted to play around with the flower in the set and use some new favorites also in the new catalog – Strawberry Slush from the In Colors 2013-15 and Quatrefancy DSP. Here is what I came up with using the layout at Freshly Made Sketches # 93 and the Tic-Tac-Toe grid from Amy’s The Friday Mash-Up # 117 – Pearls, Ribbon, Flowers …
Below is a pic of the card before I added the pearls- I like them both but think the pearls added a touch of fancy to my black tie card. What do you think?
STAMPS: SU Simply Sketched
INK: Stazon Jet Black, SU Strawberry Slush, SU Lucky Limeade
PAPER: SU Strawberry Slush, SU Basic Black, SU Watercolor Paper, SU Quatrefancy DSP

OH GOLLY, IT LOOKS LIKE OTTAWAMOM AND I ARE THINKING ON THE SAME WAVELENGTH. I LITERALLY TOOK A GLANCE AT BOTH SITES BEFORE I POSTED- THEN HAD TO TAKE A DELIVERY AT MY DOOR AND WHEN I POSTED- MY CARD WENT RIGHT NEXT TO BRENDA’S ON BOTH SITES…LOL! NEEDLESS TO SAY, I LOVE YOUR CARD, BRENDA!!
Another striking card, Cindy. I love the color combination and do like the card with the pearls added. Have a blessed week!
Thanks, Bernadette. I just love coloring with the blender pens;)
That is too funny. Great minds do think alike! LOVE your card, it is gorgeous. That stamp set and the new Strawberry Slush are quickly becoming some of my favourites too. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you, Brenda. Definitely my favorites in one card.
Gorgeous card, love the pop of black! Thanks for playing with us at Freshly Made Sketches!
Thanks so much, Allisa. Black and another color are always so fun to work with!
Love this! I think I would have added the pearls too:-) Both are beautiful!
Thanks, Elisha. I was partial to the pearls, too:)

Wow! I have to say it again. Wow! This is a stunning creation, Cindy! I love the black! Beautiful choice of colors and papers, and your flower is so pretty. Very well done! Thanks for sharing with us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!
Awe, Cindy, thanks! I loved the layout and the stamp set is so pretty and easy to work with.
Love how the colors are so bold but the flower is colored in soft. It works really well and softens up the card.
Thanks, Alina. I hadn’t noticed how the light and dark worked together until you mentioned it!
Yay, Cindy! Another well-deserved win!!!
Thanks so much, dear Darnell!
The pearls do add an extra little touch. Very pretty! Your bow is perfect! Thanks for joining the Friday Mashup this week.
So pretty and yes, the pearls were the perfect touch!

Thank you, Lisa. I did like the pearls when I added them specifically for the challenge using pearls- thanks for the inspiration at FM!
