A Springy card for Today's Sketch Challenge

My daughter has been fighting a nasty cold and my son is off-track (year round school), so I have been able to just relax and stamp. Yesterday was a full-on Jammie Day. Don't you just love those once in a while? I know that I do. My daughter is feeling better today, I can tell, but I don't dare push it. I think we will take it easy again today. I participated in Today's sketch challenge over at splitcoaststampers. I wanted to use springy colors so I chose Saffron, Celery and Artichoke.I also added a fun design element that I have noticed recently on the SU! samples; add embossed circles to the scallops with the crop-a-dile. I really like how it turned out. It has the feel that I was trying to achieve. Also, as I mentioned in my previous post, I will be trying to add things to my blog daily, and don't miss out on the blog candy coming up soon! Thanks for fluttering by!

Stamps: Garden Whimsy, Tres Chic

Cardstock: Whisper White, Always Artichoke, Certainly Celery, So Saffron

Ink: Artichoke, celery, saffron

Accessories: pretties kit, vanilla 5/8 inch grosgrain, saffron brads, slit punch, crop-a-dile
