Congrats to You – CYCI #114

Congrats to you for making it to mid-week!  Today I am playing along with the Can You Case It #114 sketch challenge….


As you can see, it is a positively lovely sketch.  I stayed very true to the entire sketch right down to the flower border.

I am definitely a “neutrals” kind of girl. One look in my closet tells you that!  But I love pairing neutrals with soft colors as I did in this card.  The DSP is from the Neutrals DSP stack in Crumb Cake.  I added the faux lace border, also stamped in Crumb Cake, from the Grateful Bunch stamp set.  I had entirely overlooked this stamp in that set up until now.  Once I stamped it on this card, I thought of so many other ways to use it.  I have made a promise to myself:  from now on I am going to try to use every stamp in a set at least once.  I think we see so many samples of card using just the main stamps and forget about all the other great stamps in each set.  I stamped the sentiment in a shade darker, Soft Suede, to make it more pronounced on the card.  This sentiment is from the Tin of Cards stamp set.

The flowers and leaves, from the Birthday Blossoms stamp set, are stamped in Soft Suede and colored with Blushing Bride, So Saffron and Pear Pizzazz ink and a blender pen.  The flowers were a cinch to cut using the Pansy punch and I fussy cut the leaves.  They are popped up with dimensionals.  I did add Wink of Stella to the flower petals, although it is not really evident in this photo. It really give the petals such a pretty shimmer.

The inside sentiment is from a random set in my stash.  I used this sentiment because I will be using this as a bridal shower card and thought it was appropriate.  Again, there is that lace border!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Please remember that during April I am offering a set of Basic Pearls with any order over $50 (before tax and shipping) along with a handmade card.

Until next time,
