TSOT358 and SIP139 Happy Anniversary

Hey peeps!  Sorry this is a little later than normal...I have managed to avoid catching a cold all winter long and I am afraid it's my turn!  Just sort of lazing on the couch today, taking it easy.  I roused myself to make a card with the Try Stampin' On Tuesday sketch and the ribbon theme from Stamp Ink Paper:


The optional theme for TSOT was Flower Power, so I pulled out my neglected Beautiful Bouquet and three ink colors:

I stamped each of the flowers on Very Vanilla cardstock in Crushed Curry, Flirty Flamingo and Blushing Bride, then cut them out with the matching dies.  I swooshed some ink and water in the same colors on some scraps of VV cardstock and cut them out with a Stitched Shape circle die.  I added some speckles with Itty Bitty Backgrounds and mounted the florals on with a dimensional.  Finally I added a matching scallop layer and mounted them all on a Very Vanilla panel that was embossed with the Quilt Top embossing folder:

I stamped the sentiment with Flirty Flamingo on a scrap of VV and used one of the square Stitched Shape dies to cut and emboss it, and added my little snippet of ribbon in Powder Pink, below it:

Since the embossing causes the cardstock to become a bit flimsy, I mounted it on a base of thick Very Vanilla cardstock; that really helps give  a "firm foundation" for the embossing...and we all need a firm foundation!!  Thanks for popping in today!

Ice cream plays an important part in the Hendrickson household!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!
