Fall Field Flowers

TGIF Peeps!!

Today I am sharing a card made with the sketch challenge this week on Splitcoaststampers.

I love these flowers in the Stampin' Up stramp set called "Field Flowers" and today I wanted to make a fall card. I am using the new DSP that will be available September 1 in the Holiday Mini called "Spice Cake". This paper is seriously FABULOUS!!! Love it! I stamped the flowers using more mustard and cajun craze ink. I cut them out and added them to the card with some dimesionals.

Ya'll know my love of making sentiment flags but that was not my intention when looking at this sketch. But when I laid out the strip across the card and decided to put my sentiment on it, I just HAD to make it a flag. :)

I added an antique brad and some old olive grosgrain ribbon to the end of the sentiment piece. I used a pencil to curl the piece and added some dimesionals under the curved portion.

I embossed the more mustard piece with the square lattice EF and added a few more brads.

The base of the card is Soft Suede and I followed that with some more mustard card stock.

Well, that is all from me today, thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
