Wish Big Freestyle Collage

Welcome!  TGIF (thank GOODNESS it's Friday!!)!

Today I'm sharing a card that features one of my favorite styles:  Freestyle Collage.  I love adding various patterns (from paper, stamps, accents), and lots of texture (punched leaves, gems, a staple, a paper flower) to come up with a one-of-a-kind creation.


I've been trying to use up some Colorbok die cuts (the doilies and bird), and they looked kind of bare as a trio, so I added punched leaves and a paper flower.


The banner/sentiment was dressed up a bit more with a mini staple, and some pink bling.


Keepin' it short and sweet, as the evening I am writing this is quickly winding down, and my pillow is calling.  :-)

Have a terrific weekend, and thank you so much for coming by!

A sweet little botanical grouping and a lovely selection of accents to make it even more special. One of a kind is right! Isn't that wonderful? My pillow is calling my name right now, too. Oooooh, I like the sound of it!

Colleen this isop you. Elegant. I love the mix of neutrals (g-o-r-g-e-o-u-s bird!!) with a splash of color. Fab idea to add leafs and a flower. It adds a bit of dimension and it works perfect together. Lovely!
We had a wonderful time in Liverpool. Martijn is doing well and meeting Ros was amazing.
Thinking of you; life is hectic and that's why I have not been around much. Sorry...
Sending a big hug!
