Flower Power

I think we are all a little bored with making Christmas cards so I switched themes and went with springtime and flowers!! YAY!! I can hardly wait! ROFL!

This card was done for the sketch challenge on Splitcoast Stampers.

Since, it is the day after Christmas, they went easy on us and just had a simple card with a circle on it, but the circle had to be cut off at the top.

I had a heck of a time doing that AND having a decent image in the middle but I guess I did manage.

The white cardstock is from Papertrey Ink. It is by far the best in my opinion and so very sturdy being 110 lb weight. Talking about paper weight used to be a whole other language for me a few months ago.....but now I know.....that is GOOD!! LOL!!

I was kind of fooling around with my new stamp set from Papertrey Ink called "Text Boxed", and stamped a whole lot of the same image in Paper Salon's ink "Petal", on top of each other.

I thought that would be an interesting background, so I used it for this sketch challenge.

Then I took Autumn Leaves "Flower Trio" single stamp by Rhonna Farrer that I got at Scrappin' Great Deals and stamped it on top of the Text Boxed images. I used Brilliance "Pearlescent Orchid" to stamp that image.

The image was adhered to pink cardstock and the whole thing was glued to the white background and done.

It really was easy except I kept cutting off the image. Finally I cut the circle first and THEN stamped! LOL! Sometimes it takes awhile to sink in to this old bean!! LOL!

Anyway, I am off to bed.....we have a little treat tonight....our 14 month old grandson is staying with us overnight.....he is just learning to walk so tonight he just kept going back and forth and back and forth, all the while looking like a drunk little grandpa.....hee hee!

I'm whipped!! LOL!!
