Yahoo!  This card won over at Crafting When You Can Challenge!!!  Thanks so much for picking my card!  I am very proud and honored that you chose my card among so many other talented artists!

Hi There!
I am in love with this new paper I received from Live and Love Crafts - Maja Design/Vintage Autumn!!  I almost can't bring myself to use the paper as it is just so beautiful!!  But I made this card for someone special and they deserve the best in products and this paper is just that!!  Hope you like it!  I colored this image last year and never got to use it so here she is Ragged Angel by Mo Manning.  She reminds me of "The Little Match Girl" from years ago:)  I hope you have a great week and I know I will have a great week as I am only working for Monday and Tuesday!!  Thanks for taking a peek at my blog, till next time, - Hugs ~ CaroleAnn

  1. Absolutely gorgeous! I love your coloring and you are right these papers are beautiful. Whoever that lucky person is will surely love this card. Thanks for playing along with us at Crafting When We Can and good luck! Hugs, Robin

  2. You are so right, the paper is almost too pretty to cut into! We are glad you did and I am sure the recipient will be overjoyed! Your coloring is awesome and I love the palette that you chose for the clothing. The color integration here is marvelous! It is so cool how you pulled the subtle colors from the papers and made them bold in your design...nice technique! Beautifully crafted in every component. It was a delight to find this wonderful creation propped against our front door here at 613 Avenue Create!

  11. Hi CaroleAnn,
    So happy to hear that you're pleased with the papers. Great that they were worth the wait in the end (sorry again for the delay). As you can imagine, I quite often get that feeling that some products are just too beautiful to use, but then again if we didn't nobody else would get to enjoy them! :-) Gorgeous card; beautiful use of the frantage & the cheesecloth. I'm sure your friend willl be thrilled when this arrives in her mailbox. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend.
