Blooming with Kindness

CCMC249Can you believe…it’s the LAST  THURSDAY of the month so the LAST Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge for April!  This week…it’s a sketch challenge!

The base of the card is Baja Breeze.  I took the grid design from Tea for Two dsp and added to the card front.  Next was the green print, then a strip of Island Indigo that I ran through the Delicate Designs embossing folder and added to the card front.  I tie a piece of the Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon around it.  I cut a Very Vanilla Oval, stamped the flower in Baja Breeze (thumped some with Island Indigo), stem in Lucky Limeade.  The greeting is stamped in Early Espresso.  I added the oval to the card front using dimensionals then added some pearls to finish it off.

Set(s): Blooming with Kindness
Paper: Very Vanilla, Baja Breeze, Island Indigo, Tea for Two dsp
Ink: Early Espresso, Baja Breeze, Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade

Until next time…HAPPY STAMPIN’!
