Still AddInktive......Just Because

Happy Tuesday Peeps!!

Today over at Still AddINKtive Challenges 
we have a fun sketch and color combo challenge for you!

The best part of this challenge is you can use the sketch, the color combo or both for your project.
I love this color combo so that part was easy and I have had the Stampin Up Floral Framelit Dies for a while so I was anxious to make a floral shaped card with this sketch!
I used the largest framelit die with rich razzleberry card stock to make the base. 
The next layer is some razzleberry DSP from the Polka Dot Parade pack cut with the second largest die in the set. I then used this same die to cut two white floral pieces, one I used for the inside and the other is cut for the strip across the middle.

Awhile back I started buying the new firm ink pads from Stampin Up, I have to say I LOVE, them. I wasn't sure about them when the were first introduced but they are so nice and much easier to get a nice solid stamped image than the older ones. I have heard that they need re-inked much sooner but I can not attest to that yet as I have just started getting them. I am keeping my older ones too, since I like to squish my pads together for watercoloring, I will still be using them.
I used the beautiful Stippled Blossom stamp set for my flowers. I got the two colors on the flowers by stamping off the base flower once before stamping on my whisper white card stock, then the next layer is razzleberry full strength. I did the leaves in the same way with old olive.
The sentiment on here is from the SAB set called Vintage Verses, and I used black stazon for it. 
I punched a little butterfly using the new Bitty Butterfly punch from the spring mini with pretty in pink card stock. I added some basic pearls to the center of the butterfly and to the flower centers too.

Be sure and hop on over to the Still AddINKtive Challenge Blog
 to see what the rest of the girls did with this fun challenge.

Thanks for stopping by today and

Your cards are always so beautiful! I love the way you used the stamp set, the framelits, and cut the Vintage Verses along with the framelit! I need to remember that one;) Pearls are such a pretty detail!

Vicki, this is GORGEOUS! Love the shape! Your flowers turned out beautifully too!
I'm loving the new ink pads as well. I haven't bought the re-inkers though. Suppose I best do that eh?
