Today's card is made with the sketch on the Stamps and Smiles Fresh Batch Blog. I was very much inspired by this beauty, by Connie Collins. I really love her style and creativity!
I used the same stamp set and colors that she used and just changed it up a bit to fit the sketch challenge. I used some shimmer white to stamp the flowers onto with black stazon. I used creamy caramel, baja breeze and mellow moss to color the flowers. I added the dots with my SU black marker. I do love the now old in color of baja! It was one of my favorites. The DS paper is from Sweet Slumber and Parisian Breeze. I love the country homespun feel of the gingham and dots.
The friend sentiment is from the Bella Blossoms stamp set, now retired, and is stamped with black stazon onto shimmer white and punched out with my small oval punch. I ran the edges of the oval around the baja ink pad to add a bit of color to the edges.
The two white button is from the Designer Buttons, Latte pack, and I threaded some sheer black polka dot ribbon through and tied.
Well, that is all for today, Thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!
