Good morning crafty friends!
It's been a slow uneventful week for me, especially since it has not stopped raining since the beginning of last week. It was a super soggy day on Monday Memorial Day as well. Hubs and the kids of course had a 3 day weekend. Since it was too wet to barbecue, we had a nice dinner inside and had a conversation with the kiddos on the true meaning of that day.
I did manage to complete another card though!
For my card, I used an awesome layout from Sunday Sketch and Stamp. I really had lots of fun with this layered sketch!
I drew inspiration for the colors from my newest DP stack from Recollections! I just love the paper sets they have out now, I want them all! lol
I used a super adorable stamp from Wee Stamps called Sweet Blossom. I had so much fun coloring her and her little friend! I bought mine in rubber stamp form from Whimsy Stamps but if you prefer digis, you can also get them directly from the Wee Stamps shop!
I had an extra beaded pin that I created for my last card and thought it matched perfectly with this one too! I also created a little glass image pebble for the bottom corner to show a bit more of the beautiful blossoms that come from the background DP.
No sentiment for me this time...I almost always have to add a sentiment. But I thought it looked perfect without one and I didn't want to take away form the gorgeous image!
