I'm sharing the card I made for the JustRite Friday Challenge #117 - Sketch!!
Both my Mother and MIL are Celebrating Birthdays soon so I thought it would be FUN to use this sketch challenge to create a card for my MIL!! She LOVES to Garden and Flowers and the soft colors!! So I decided I'd use the BEAUTIFUL New Prima Something Blue Paper Collection!! SWOON!! These papers make me HAPPY!! I also used the New to me A2 Locking Loops Spellbinders Dies!! I have SO MANY ideas for using these!! I was able to pick them up from Joann's for $14.00!! SWEET!! =) I also used the JustRite Embroidered Background Stamp and my sentiments were from the Buntings and Banners Stamp Set!! I LOVE how the Embroidery Stamp looks on any project!! It goes with almost any style!! I used Distress Inks in Pumice Stone and Gathered Twigs to Ink up the Stamp and then I used a Paper Towel and wiped off some of the Ink before I laid my Die Cut on top of the stamp!! Then I just ran my fingers around on the inside portion of the die cut so that the detailed edges of the die cut would remain free from the Stamped Image!! I LOVE the soft and irregular look you get with this technique!!
I inked all of my pieces including my Prima Flowers, Leaves and the Layered Trims!! I LOVE the Vintage and Aged Feel it gives!! I used some Very Old Vintage Buttons for the top left corner and I think they add just the PERFECT finishing touch!!
Here is my finished card!!
THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by and have a FABULOUS WEEK!! =)
I'm also sharing this for the Simon Says Stamp Birthday Challenge!! They are Celebrating 5 years with the Challenge Blog!! YIPPEE!! Here's to many more!! =)
