PPA97...Signature Style....


Pals Paper Arts challenge this week is to design a card in your signature style.  I try to push my comfort zone now and then but my go to style is definitely clean and crisp!  I love white space - or in this case Crumb Cake space.  The red, black and white look so sharp against it!  The daisy from Every Moment was perfect for a game of "Loves Me, Loves Me Not."  Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds add a bit of sparkle to the daisy centers.  Interesting that my closet is mostly black, white, red and taupe - must be directly related to that signature style!  If I start sprinkling myself with Dazzling Diamonds I have gone too far............

Oh my goodness...this is so pretty!!! The patience required to cut these out; well, that's just something that passed me by! Glad you have it, your creation is just lovely!

Nancy said...

Absolutely gorgeous, I love the CAS and colors too. Great job with all that cutting out, but I really like the "loves me, loves me not" idea, so creative!
P.S. the added little flower stem on the sentiment is the perfect touch too!

Linda, I think it's so clever how you sprinkled those petals around! And I do love your crisp and clean style. It's one I gravitate towards, as well.

This is definitely a Linda-style card. You are right, clean and simple with ample "space" of some color. But your details are always delightful!

Marisa said...

You are too funny, Linda Callahan! You know I LOVE your style! Clean, classy, and crisp! And today's card is no exception! I LOVE what you've done with the daisies and I love the color combo too! You don't need any Dazzling Diamonds, friend (on yourself or your cards)! You and the cards are GREAT! No changes necessary! : )

Linda this card perfection! Only you would think to cut the "love me love me nots" from the daisies....... How cute is that!
I LOVE your cards and I always learn something new... thanks sooooooo much for sharing.
PS: I mostly LOVE your sense of humor, and hey... I think you'd look fabulous with touch of Dazzling Diamonds! Hugs.

This is absolutely stunning Linda and I would have completely picked this as yours out of a stack of cards. Clean lines with super detailed little extras? And a great overal design sense. Yep, that's you.

Nance said...

Oh my gosh, this is the perfect Linda C card! Certainly clean and crisp but your cards are always so thoughtful. You really think about your creations and through you they tell a story. No one else does it like you! Love this one--those daisies just pop and your other signature? Those little trailing rhinestones--LOVE 'em! ((hugs))

Wow Linda...this is gorgeous, I love the crisp colours and the pop of white that compliments the flowers! I DO wear dazzling diamonds...usually all over my fair and hairline, my hubby gets a kick out of it! He thinks it is pretty cute when I am glittered like a card!!!
Hugs,
Lesley

This is a fab card, Linda! The kraft is always 'in season' as far as I'm concerned and the way you have put red and black with it is outstanding! Love it xx
