New Rubber is Good




Happy Hump Day peeps!!

Today's card is made with some new rubber, not mine, borrowed from a friend, but still new and NEW RUBBER is always a good thing!!!

I used Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch for my card.

I started with a base of pink pirouette and followed that with chocolate chip and then some DS paper from the Bella Rose pack and the bottom strip is from the Parisian Breeze.

I then used more chocolate and some Riding hood Red DS paper from the Bella Rose pack. I pierced all around the edge of this layer.

The next layer consist of chocolate chip and then the water colored image and some kiwi kiss DS paper below the image.

The images are from the borrowed set, Stampin Up's Scene in a Garden. A great little set for water coloring. I just masked off the top of the bench to look like a shelf and then stamped onto the watercolor paper. I then stamped the windmill birdhouse, the bird and the stack of pots in black stazon. I colored with my aqua painter and ink pads.

I pierced all around the edges of this layer as well. I made the button/ribbon piece by cutting a small piece of riding hood red taffeta ribbon and threading a piece of cotton thread through the button and tying around the ribbon. I added three silver brads to the lower corner.

Thanks Lois for loaning me this cute little set, stop by tomorrow for another fun card with this same set.

That's all for today, thanks for coming by and Happy Stamping!
