If you guys have ever seen Kimberly Van Diepen's projects, you'll guess right away that this card was copied from her work. It is so obviously her signature style! I fell in love with her version of this card as soon as I saw it on her blog and just had to make my own French version of it. I changed the pink to blue and the wheel, but the rest is pretty close to her original. I also used a Bashful Blue marker to highlight one of the words on the sentiment block.
Have you gotten some tulle yet? If not, you definitely should consider getting some. I love, love it! It's fluffy, light, easy to use and injects personality into a project. No matter how big your ribbon stash (come on, 'fess up, as crafters, we all have an impressive one!), the tulle ribbon gives a completely different look. You can tie it in a bow like I did here, use it as a scallop or gathered border or make a tulle rose like I shared a few days ago.
Make sure to get some before it's gone...
Oh, and one more thing: the new foam pads are absolutely amazing when inking wheels. They give such a crisp result that I could never get with the wheels before. Just look at how clean the design looks below on the Crumb Cake cardstock...
