Thinking of You...'Perfectly'

Wowzers, May is already zipping by!  

Today, I'm sharing a card that was made almost entirely, using my Perfect Layers Rulers.
These rulers are right up at the top of my 'favorite' list!  They make getting a perfect mat so easy!

Each of my layers utilizes the 1/8" ruler.
These tools are so easy to use!  You can use any brand of craft knife, or even a rotary cutter!
Check out the company site for a tutorial video, on how to use them.  Check out the code on my sidebar for a discount on any order you place with Perfect Layers Papercrafting!
Please check out the Perfect Layers Facebook Page, as well!


The patterned paper is from an older Cosmo Cricket 6 x 6 pad called 'Togetherness'.
The stamps, and cardstock are from A Muse.
The flowers are from the "Charming Gardners' stamp set, and...
The sentiment is from the 'Friend to Friend' stamp set.
The flowers were outlined with Copic Marker R27, and blended with R32. 
Inside petals were blended with YR30.
Leaves are outlined with G82.
DD and her DH are on the road again.
We miss them so much!  And Rosie....Oh my.  We had the grand-doggie for a month,
and she left a hole in our hearts, for sure! Even our dogs seem lost.
They are visiting Nick's family in the DC area, and will be leaving next Tuesday for their tour in Germany.  They'll be there for 3 years.  
Thank you all so much for your patience,
and understanding, while family was our priority in April.
Have a great day!
Hugs & smiles,
Patti J.

Very pretty - I may have to play more with the perfect layer tools - because as you know I am not always the bestest straight cutter!!! Love this set a lot and very versatile. Thinking about you and will say a little prayer. PS you know where I live.

Oh, Patti - your card is stunning! I absolutely love the way you colored the flowers. I've long thought about getting a set of those rulers. I've actually fashioned my own (sort of) out of wood, but I know these rulers would be much more accurate. Hugs to you as you miss your DD and SIL.

Love this colorful card, Patti! The papers look beautiful with the image.

BTW, I use the disount code on your sidebar to order a new set. My set of perfect layers need replacing since the edges on mine are cracked and chipped.

Thanks!

I use this tool every time I make a card! Love it - couldn't do without it! I need to replace the 1/16 one, but they don't sell just that one! Bummer! Wonderful card!!!
