Sprightly Little Flower

DSCF4243

I love the little sentiment on this card...it is from an Inque Boutique set, and unfortunately they are no longer in business. A darn shame, too, their stamps were great! Anyway, this card fulfills a slew of challenges:

DSCF4242

Pretty straightforward; I probably would have put a sentiment on the front bottom panel, but left it off so I can add it as I need it. Thanks for visiting today!

  • Stamps: Flutter By, Butterfly, Inque Boutique
  • Paper: WW, Haiku, Parisian Summer, Hostess Prints Pack, So Saffron, Bashful Blue, Pumpkin Pie
  • Ink: Ballet Blue, Pumpkin Pie
  • Acc: Birds & Blooms Die, Dew Drops, Gingham, Buttons, Walmart, Sponge Dauber, MS Eyelet Scallop Punch
Edited to add: Liza asked me where I used the Sponge Daubers....the flowers are two layers, one of Pumpkin Pie, the other Haiku. I sponged the edges of the PP flowers--hard to see in the photo! Thanks for asking, Liza!

So pretty and creative. The colors are very springy. I forget that it is springtime as here it always feels like summer.

LeAnne very pretty. Sorry if this is a dumb question, where is the sponge dauber used in this card? Just curious... maybe there is a technique I dont know :)

Just the cutest card LeAnne!! So cheery, sweet flowers and that sentiment is PERFECT!! Sponging the edges of punched or die cut flowers give such depth to them... YOU ROCK! SMILES... :)

Tomorrow we're driving the 40 miles to Michaels. Do you think if I got more nestabilities and some rubber, I could use a rolling pin to get it to work? My Cuttlebug is too heavy to mail to me.

dpkennedy said...

That is a pretty sentiment...and a wonderful card too! Love these colors and pretty flowers!

Julia Aston said...
