I thought I was keeping it simple today


So how did I end up spending over an hour on this card? I really wanted to do today's color challenge to use baja breeze, not quite navy, and kraft, and this is what I came up with. I also used Julee's Mojo Monday sketch for the week, which was a lot of fun.

I started with this large topper stamp by Stampendous. It's actually a Mother's Day stamp, so I just inked the circle and flowers with not quite navy marker and then added my own sentiment (also by Stampendous). I stamped onto vanilla cardstock then paper pieced the vase and flowers using Green Tea and Urban Garden papers. I cut out the vanilla circle and put that onto a kraft scalloped circle cut and embossed with Nestabilities. The rest is a strip of the same Green Tea paper on not quite navy cardstock, two strips of kraft taffeta ribbon, and three baja breeze buttons tied with hemp twine and adhered to 3/4" vanilla circles.

I'm all out of time now so I'll just say thanks for stopping by, and be sure to come back tomorrow for the return of the Inspiration Challenge!
