Feel Goods

DSC00576This week the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge is a fun and simple Sketch Challenge.  I’ve been playing around with the Swallowtail stamp.  I have to say, when I saw the stamp in the mini…did NOT like it!  Now that I’ve been playing with it a bit…LOVE IT!!!  I was soooo happy with this card!

The base of the card is Natural Cream.  I stamped the Swallowtail using Crumb Cake, added a piece of the flower print from Tea for Two dsp than a piece of the Primrose Petals Stitched Satin Ribbon.  I inked the greeting from Feel Goods using Old Olive and Primrose Petals and stamped on the card front.  I stamped the leaves from the Oh Hello flower using Old Olive, cut out and added to the top.  Finally I took 3 of the Vanilla Flower Trim, colored the tops using Primrose Petal then added to the card front to finish it off.  This really isn’t my usual style but I must say…LOVE IT!!!
