MTSC71 Thanks so much

Happy Hump Day Peeps!!!

Today's card is made with Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge. This card is also 3rd in a series of a set I have been working on. See the first one here and the second one here.

There will be one more in this set and I am also working on a "tote" for them, so stay tuned for those.

This one I made with a square element in the middle, like the sketch. I did flipped the sketch to put my bow on the opposite side and I used a butterfly at the top for the element there in the sketch.

I used my new jewelry tag punch and the Tiny Tags stamp set for the sentiment. The base of the card is rich razzleberry and I followed that with a layer of whisper white and then a layer of perfect plum, (a fave of mine that is retiring). I stamped the main image onto whisper white card stock with rich razzleberry ink. I then went back with my aqua painter and quickly colored the flowers in. I added a bit of summer sun into the middle of some of the flowers and some old olive for the leaves.

I used some whisper white satin ribbon, if you have not used this ribbon you should try it out soon, It ties up like a dream! The DS paper used come from the Cottage Wall paper pack and I added white mini brads to the corners and three little sticky pearls to the butterfly center.

Well, that is all from me today, Thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
