To You from Me


I really should be cleaning up my stamp area...you would all die if you could see it! LOL! Once I got the desk cleaned off it looked like it needed to be messed up again so I decided to make a card using Jen's weekend sketch. They are always fab, but I must admit that I really struggled with this one and I am not sure I quite like the finished card. There is something *off* about it. Oh well! I decided to head into the other room where I store all of my retired stamps and I stumbled across "Natural Beauty". I thought the main floral image would work well on this layout, so I went with it. I also paired it with some More Mustard prints pattern dsp. I colored the images with a blender pen and re-inkers. I added some diamond stickles to the flowers and butterflies, tied a knot of diamond stickles and called it good! Thanks for fluttering by!

Supplies: Natural Beauty and Best Yet stamp sets

Ink: Always Artichoke, More Mustard, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Palette Noir, Vintage Photo distress ink

Paper: White, More Mustard prints dsp, always artichoke

Accessories: circle punches, white taffeta ribbon, diamond stickles, foam squares, sponge
