I spent this weekend trying to get my new vegetable garden ready so that I could plant my veggies. I am glad that I can report that I was successful! In fact, as I sit here typing this I am contemplating my dirt-covered feet and realizing that today was a good day in the sunshine tilling the earth!
My card today is for The Paper Players where LeAnne has cooked up an awesome sketch. I started making this card yesterday and finished it up tonight.
To me, this sketch was tailor-made for showing off some DSP, so I figured I'd start off by picking a patterned paper and let my card evolve from that. I looked through several candidates before settling on this subtle Sahara Sand print from Sweet Pea. I followed it up with some accent colors of Chocolate Chip and Old Olive with my flowers colored in some dusky pinks.
The sentiment is from Perfectly Penned and - I can't believe I'm saying this - I've had that stamp set for nearly a year and it's the first time I've inked it up! My Chocolate Chip stamp pad is the worst ever and I wanted the sentiment to really show up, so I inked it in Versamark then embossed it with some ancient SU! embossing powder called Powder Stack Earths. It's not as good as the current embossing powder, but it gets the job done.
I'm sorry to say that it's back to work for me tomorrow. I wish every week featured a three day weekend! Thanks for stopping by!
