You're a true treasure!!!!

Hi Everyone,

Last night I was chatting with my dear friends Summer and Rosette and I asked them what card they liked the most...with or without the sentiment (which I think is perfect for this card).
I really like this new open shell stamp from "Alota".

I also like the following sentiments...Please let me know if you think in more ideas...

- "I treasure your friendship"
- "I'm so lucky to find you, you are a real treasure"
-" You are a treasure friend"
-" You are my biggest treasure"

OK, now is your turn...I'm open to new ideas!!! I'm working on two additional cards with this new open shell from Alota and more Magnolias. Stay tuned!! :))

( All highlithed items bellow can be purchased at "Roses on Paper" and right now is a sale of 25% off on select items!)

Stamps: Alota ( open shell), Magnolia ( Tilda with heart), Stampabilities (sentiment- DR1030)
Papers: Basic Grey( Bittersweet Collection) and Bazzill
Inks: Distress Ink Pads (Worn Lipstick, Walnut Stain and Antique Linen)
Embellishments:Prima Flowers, Buttons and brads ( Bittersweet Collection from Basic Grey), pink center kisses, gems-pearls, crystal stickles, heart charm from stash.

Wow! Wonderful cards you make. Love them, your style and colors!


Karen said...

Gorgeous either way !

I'd be more likely to say 'You're a real treasure'. Sometimes wonder if those sorts of sayings vary across the pond? Or maybe it's just me! :)

Monique said...

She's just a pearl! Pearls are my favorites! I adore her with or without the sentiment. I go with "You're my greatest treasure"! I love the details you have on her and she's colored so beautifully. I just love your work!

Hugs to you,


Peta said...

This is adorable Lim, I think I like the one with the sentiment better, no wait, maybe the one without, oh no, I can't decide, it looks great either way

Jodi said...

Lim, I love what you created with this shell stamp!
I have something for you on my blog! =)

Elley said...


What beautiful cards these are, I too love the opened shell. I think my favorite saying would be the one you wrote ""I'm so lucky to find you, you are a real treasure"
Because when you find one of these shells, you could find a treasure, as in a pearl and those are a rare find. Great jobs on the cards.

Hugs, Ellen

Renee said...
