You Are Loved
I'm combining two challenges with my card this morning. The Paper Players has a Spring theme challenge this week, and I'm using the sketch from the Retro Rubber Challenge for my card's layout.
This pretty little flower basket is from a previous year's SU Sale-a-braton, although I don't remember if it is from last year or the year before. It is stamped with Memento black ink and colored with Copics in pastel shades. I wanted to use lighter shades for a nice contrast to the dark background that I used. The background is from the SU Wood Textures 6 x 6 DSP pack and then embossed with the Basket Weave EF. After coloring the image, I cut it out with SU square die and layered it on a SU scalloped square. The sentiment is cut out with a SU Stitched Rectangle die, and for the three flag elements in the sketch, I used three SU pink flower sequins.
I made this card into a birthday card by using birthday themed sentiments on the inside. These are from another SU set that is also over a year old.
It's still rainy here today. I may do more stamping, but I also need to do laundry and pack for this week's work trip.
Hope your Sunday is relaxing. Thanks for looking in,
