Hello

Well, we've still got some chaos going on here right now. I'm squeezed in my livingroom between all the kickplates and my countertop and trying to type sitting diagonally...

But I DO have something pretty to show you today in the midst of the kitchen renos.

While we were in the US I managed to finally get some PaperTrey Ink Stamps that I've been craving. Ever since I saw Debbie Olson use this gorgeous flower I was hooked! I colored the images while I was on vacation, so I put something quick together this morning for the Sketch Challenge on SCS.
I colored this gorgeous flower with my Copic collections from Flourishes (Tea Rose and Evergreen) (which is out of stock right now but will be in shortly). I carefully trimmed out the flower and leaf.
I stamped a background on the middle panel with the smaller flower from the set in Vanilla Craft. And I used my Deckled Rectangles to achieve the pretty edges on the card.
Chat with you soon!
Recipe: Stamps: PTI - Friend Til the End; Ink: Memento Black, Vanilla, Basic Brown; Paper; Melon Mambo, Chocolate Chip, Au Chocolat DSP, Flourishes Classic White Copic Paper; Accessories: Copic Markers (Flourishes Evergreen and Tea Rose Collections); Chocolate Satin Ribbon, Dimensionals, Big Shot, Deckled Rectangle Nestabilities.
