A Few Of My Favorite Things

If that tittle doesn't get you singing the song, nothing will!  But quit singing for a minute and come join in the challenge at Shopping Our Stash that has the theme - A Few of my Favorite Things!  Yes, we want you to create a card (or project) and include your favorite things!  It's that easy!  Be sure and check out the blog of all the details and be inspired by the Design Team.  Don't forget to use up that STASH!

A few of my favorite things..........this was so easy since everything I have to go on a card are my favorite things!  LOL!  But I DO love ribbon (and lace is right up there with it), pearls (even though I'm not a pearl type girl), DP (it's all so pretty), nesties, images, etc.....you name it and I love it!


This is NOT the usual type of card I create - at all......but thought I'd try it since I like all the elements on it.  I used one of my favorite SU sets, Pocket Silhouettes, for the image and Watercolor Trio for the sentiment.  The lace is some I found in a thrift store so long ago.  I used a scalloped oval nestie and some DP from Prima.  I've had this paper forever and just stare at it and never use it.  The flourishes were sent to me from Carol over at Our Little Inspirations!  What's not to love about those things.....so pretty and delicate!
As I said, this really isn't a "Lynn card" but still like how it turned out.

I'll be back shortly with my {Pin}spirational Challenge post..........

Thanks for stopping by.............and be sure and check out the Shopping Our Stash challenge.

Well, even if it's not your usual style, you certainly did a fantastic job on it, Lynn. I adore the lace ribbon and the way you tied it! Nice leaf swirl and great papers.

Wow Lynn, absolutely beautiful card! The lace is especially pretty! Great card!

Very nice, great job stepping outside what you normally do too. I love pearls and lace on cards but you would never know it by the way I dress!

Monica said...

Lovely card, Lynn, love it's feminine appearance and the ribbon looks fab.
I love that song and the movie is one of my faves to date.

Love,
Monica

Anne Temple said...

This is so very pretty! Love the knotted lace you added.

Bonnie said...

Isn't it fun to do something different once in a while? Pocket Silhouettes is one of my favorites too. It fits so beautifully in this sweet frame and the die cut is to "did" for!

Tammy said...

This is beautiful Lynn! I love the soft colors and how you've framed the image!! Gorgeous lace & pearls!
Hugs, Tammy

Isn't that funny how so many of your favourites can combine to make something that doesn't feel like your usual style? I love the soft colours & the awesome dies!

Shelly Schmidt said...

Beautifully done- LOVE the lace and the beautiful DSP- they showcase off the image perfectly!

MaxineD said...

Those colours are some of my favourites.

I'd definitely say this is a "Lynn card!" You put it together and created it which makes it yours ;)
I love the feminine touches with the lace, flourishes and pretty birthday fonts! Simply beautiful :)

gale said...

Gorgeous. I need to get some of those scalloped dies. I only have plain scallops and they're getting kinda boring. lol

Shannon White said...

Nancy in Iowa said...

Oh Lynn! This is a favorite! Tied lace - LOVE LOVE LOVE it - have never done that before but it is smashing! I hope you don't mind if I 'borrow' this idea!
The flourishes are the perfect pop for the nestie and pearls with swirls - what's not to love?
I too have some DP that I look at - move on - go back to - move on - look at it again - move on....Sometimes wondering what the heck do I keep this for... Well this is why - cuz sometimes it just becomes the PERFECT solution!
This card is so wonderful!
