Virtual Retreat Part 2

Hi everyone, 

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know! 

The cards I'm sharing with you today are those I designed for sessions 3 and 4 of last month's virtual retreat in my Facebook group...

Card: Unbranded white, Clarity's designer card, light rose and clear parchment
Groovi Plates: Symmetrical Floral Round (outer square), Nested Arch Tags and Jayne's Hummingbirds (trumpet flowers)
Tools and embellishments: Groovi and Pergamano embossing tools, Nested Arch Tags die, Perga color pend and rhinestones from my stash

The sketch technique I used for the 2nd one was the first time I'd demoed it, so it was a fitting finale to the event which saw all 4 live sessions within 22 hours... stark contrast to the months of planning in the lead up to it, but SO worth it!

Card: Unbranded white and Clarity's clear parchment
Groovi Plates: Nested circle picot, Trees and Landscape (both used for the pencil sketch instead of being embossed)
Tools and embellishments: Groovi and Pergamano embossing tools, Nested circle picot die, Polychromo pencils and rhinestones from my stash

Challenges (all top card)... 
#202206 Let it all hang out at 613 Avenue Create 

I'll be back soon with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then,


  1. Beautiful! I love the embossed parchment paper. The die cut window really looks like real stained glass. Thanks for sharing at 613 Avenue Create's June, "Anything Goes with a Twist/Tag Challenge".

  2. Oh my I like how you did the background without coloring them and then the ones on the tag are colored, I love that combo!

  3. Love the soft colour palette.
    Thank you for entering our Anything Goes Challenge at Through The Craft Room Door this week. Looking forward to see you again next challenge.
