Freshly Made Swap

Hi Everyone: Today, my post is for the challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches challenge plus it is also for a swap.  I got the idea for my card from Sandy Mathis over at Stamp with Sandy.

Thank you Sandy for the inspiration.

The challenge at Freshly Made Sketches is called "seeing double".







Stamps: Flower Fest (c-122280, $24.95, w-122278, $33.95, p. 124, 2011/2012 IB&C), Just Believe (c-120453, $31.95, w-116948, $41.95, p. 109, 2011/2012 IB&C)
Paper: Naturals Ivory, Cajun Craze, Pear Pizzazz, Always Artichoke,
Ink: River Rock, Always Artichoke
Accessories: Big Shot, Label Framelits, 5-Petal Flower Punch, Versa-mark, White Embossing Powder, Pearls, Very Vanilla 5/8” Satin Ribbon


To make the leaves, I stamped another flower from the set and punched out with the 5-Petal Flower punch and then cut the petals apart to use for the leaves.
 
This colour combination is new to me and I am very pleased with the way it came together.  I am certainly loving the framelit dies.

Enjoy the rest of your evening and until next time.
