FTL104.....Miss You Already

Happy Hump Day Peeps!!

Today's card share is made with the Fall to Layout #104 on the Clean & Simple Blog.

I am not sure I worked it all out to match the sketch but I was determined to use this beautiful black eye Susan from the SU "Inspired from Nature" stamp set. I stamped the flowers with some chalk ink onto my white card stock. I layered that onto some Early Espresso card stock. I used my MS daisy chain punch and some summer sun 1/4 inch grosgrain ribbon. The sentiment comes from the retired "Really Retro" stamp set and is stamped with Early Espresso ink. I used my stamp a ma jig and it is still a bit crooked, the ribbon had already been added so it was hard to hold the stamp a ma jig handle in place. To finish I added another strip of early espresso that I had embossed with an EF.

I do love this flower image! What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
