Happy Tuesday, peeps! I have two sweet little cards to share today; they use the sweet little sketch from Fab Friday:
I needed a bridal shower card for my soon-to-be-niece and I loved the invitation that came for it; it had beautiful roses in deep burgundy and pink shades. (You can see the top of it under my card). So I pulled out my Altenew Painted Flowers and a few rosy colors of ink and went to work:
Both the background DSP as well as the tag were from CTMH's Chelsea Gardens; I backed the banner in Smoky Slate just to bring it out a little. I originally stamped three large flowers in dark, medium and light shades of pink, but ended up not using the large pink one and created a smaller pink one. I stamped some florals directly to the DSP, the added some greenery in Pear Pizzazz and Always Artichoke and finally added a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes. I happened to have a little scrap of already-dyed green shabby seam binding, so I added that to the top of the banner. It's hard to see, but there is also silver thread looped under the flowers.
The inside is a combination of two sentiments stamped in Berry Burst and Smoky Slate; the "blessed" is from Technique Tuesday and the "wishing" is from Altenew as well. I love that layered look!
Since I already had the Altenew pink rose and greenery cut, I went ahead and created another card with the same sketch, using a scrap of Pear Pizzazz DSP and some retired baker's twine, all attached to a Blushing Bride card. The sentiment and greenery are from a recent Paper Pumpkin kit:

Enjoy your day and be blessed!
