Hand Stamp Sentiments 116 & Cards & Things 118

Thursday, May 3, 2012

The very cool color challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments got my creative juices going so I hunted around a bit and settled on using the Cards & Things sketch challenge to make a card.




For the focal point, one of the flowers from the lovely Raining Flowers was stamped once in Pink Pirouette, then another smaller flower was stamped with Regal Rose and the two layered together.  In between those two layers I put a pretty flourish that I cut from a bit of Pool Party.  As a final touch I added a horizontal layer of Pool Party that  I accented with some curly ribbon. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Excellent card! I love the texture, and especially how you offset the flower in the center circle, it really adds a cool visual interest. Thanks so much for playing at Hand Stamped Sentiments! Erika
