Hello and happy Sunday! I haven't had much time for crafting lately but it's been raining here in Southeast Missouri most of the day, so I was forced indoors. It's the perfect day to sit inside and get inky. Today's card was created for the latest Freshly Made Sketches and Color Throwdown challenges. To create my card I started by stamping the Sketchy Lines Background stamp by Simon Says Stamp onto some white cardstock using Gina K Designs mango ink and die cut a circle window out of the panel. I adhered the panel directly to my white A2 card base. I stamped a few black dots from the Stampendous Sunny Flowers stamp set on the circle background using Memento tuxedo black ink. I then stamped the leaves from the Stampin' UP Kinda Eclectic stamp set using Gina K Designs fresh asparagus ink and fussy cut them out. I adhered them around the circle using a glue pen. I then stamped the flowers from Stampin' UP's Flower Shop stamp set using Memento tuxedo black ink and colored them in using pink Copic markers. I added some white gel pen dots to the centers and then punched them out using the coordinating punch from Stampin' UP. I popped the flowers up using foam dimensionals from Scrapbook Adhesives. I then stamped the sentiment from the Verve Stamps Poppy Birthday using versamark ink onto some black cardstock and heat set it using Ranger white detail embossing powder. I cut the sentiment down to a narrow strip and popped it up next to the flowers using my foam dimensionals. To finish off my card I added some clear rhinestones from Paper Studios. Love how pretty this card turned out!
