Live Your Dream Sketch

Good Monday Morning Peeps! Hope you all had a great weekend and a fabulous Valentine's day!

Today's card is made for Jen's Sketch for You to Try.

For my card I pulled out an oldie but goodie stamp set, SU's "Live Your Dream."
I love the flowers in that set, of course, ya'll know I love flower stamps, I am making a mental note to try and pull myself away from them, I need to stretch my creative wings and try some other kind of stamps! :)

I used the SU Raspberry Tart DS paper for my color pallet. When I was putting this one together I had thought I would use three white brads on the top panel. When I went to pull them out I found I only had two left. So what to do? I decide to use the two and add a silver ribbon slide with a knot as my third accent. I also had originally wanted to put the bottom strip across the top of my flower panel with a sentiment from "Stem Sayings" but it just didn't look right at all. So I changed it up to put my strip behind the flower which I had run through the cuttlebug with a small zig-zag embossing folder and added the sentiment, which is from the SU set "All Holidays", stamped in black and punched out with the small oval punch and layered with another piece punched with the large oval punch. I added some sticky pearls to the sentiment piece and to the flower centers.

Well, that is it for today, looking forward to my new stamps arriving, are the here yet Lois? Thanks so much for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
