Creative Sketches Style

Happy Thursday, and thank you for stopping by to see what I've been crafting.  I want to thank everyone who had posted a comment on yesterdays blog candy post.  Good Luck!  But, now it's time for another challenge from Creative Sketches!  The challenge this week, is pretty easy - create a new card showcasing your style!  Easy Peasy!

I know what you're thinking, 'this really isn't you, Sharon.'  but take a closer look.  I've used vintage-style paper, a piece of text paper, a hand-made flower, some ribbon, and some sparkle.  It's me, just not my usual color combo.

 A fellow paper crafter had made a comment to me a few weeks back, that she didn't know that blue was my favorite color.  And it's not.  Red, is my favorite color.  I love the color itself.  (To me it evokes strength, power, passion, and love.)   So, she wondered why I don't use it.   If Red is my favorite color, then why does 80% of my cards have no red.  They have Pink, Blue, and Crumb Cake.; this is my typical color combo.  But, they don't have Red.  When I paper craft, and I don't have to follow a style, I love vintage/shabby chic.  And you really don't see alot of red.  But I love Red.  
And then, I found this new paper in my local scrapbooking store, Authentique.  I had to have at least one sheet of each pattern paper that is in the collection.  And I LOVE it!  For some odd reason, this paper makes me think of my grandmother.  Don't know why, but it does.  And so, I have had a smile on my face the whole time I have worked with it. 
Thank you for stopping by and for looking.  Let me know what your favorite color is.  Even if it doesn't make numerous appearances in your crafting.   Have a wonderful day!

Hi Sharon. Its lovely! Those flowers are gorgeous and I love how you have put it all together. Its so nice when you create something you are so proud of and even nicer when it gives you a warm fuzzy feeling of nostolgia.
My favourite colour is Purple :)

Love how the colors enhance each other on your card! And that satin ribbon is adding just the right touch of elegance :)
