The files are sent as PDF which is a standard for printing high resolution pictures, however JPGs and PNGs will be happily provided upon request. Printables give you more bang for your buck as you can print your favorite papers any time they fit your project!!

We also have a wonderful Facebook TRD Group! Join us and be inspired daily with a new sketch and a new card posted by the fabulous I Love Sketches by Tsunami Rose Design Team!

Today's sketch is #3

My Project

I have been a part of the Tsunami Rose Design Team for several months. I have always loved the wonderful papers that owner Daisy Collins creates.  It is interesting to me that a year ago when I started creating cards, I did not consider myself a vintange person.  Now, I find myself waiting for the new designs Daisy creates.  I know that once you visit Daisy's shop, you too will fall in love with her designs and her printable papers. Just a little lower in this blog posting, you will see her new "Lifes Abloom" printable journal kit.  I have seen just how awesome this paper is, and I can promise you that you will want to get your hands on it as soon as possible.

To make my card for today's blog hop, I used pink Basic Basil card stock as my base. My card is 5.5 x 5.5.  I added two panels of Daisy's "Rose Paint Crackle" Paper in pink.  EAch panel is 2.5 x 5, with the edges inked using ColorBox Cat's Eye Archival Dye Ink.  I complemented the shabby chic roses in the paper with a beautiful shabby chic ivory color rose at the top of the page.  My wonderful sister in law Lisa sent me the pack of flowers. The two tiny flowers on the bottom left corner are some flowers I received as a gift from Anne-Therese Cermola Luper from Paper Patch Crafts for hosting a stamp swap. I thought the yellow and pink flowers went well together.  I completed my card by adding a sentiment of Congrats.  I believe the stamp set is a Unity Stamp Set, but to be honest,  I do not recall for sure.  I do know that it is part of a Graduation Stamp set.
