You're Special

Hey there!  Kinda dead around blog land lately!  Maybe it's just my blog?!  Oh well, I keep on truck'n!  Yesterday I received my Paper Smooches order and of course inked up!  For my card I used Friendly Flowers and Sentiment Sampler.  The perfect card to give to my awesome sister!

To start, I cut a panel of Aqua Mist cardstock and adhered some Ripe Avocado cut to look like hills and distressed a bit with Peeled Paint Distress ink with foam.

Stamped, colored and cut out my flowers, stamped some stems, colored them and popped them up with foam.  I also added a color coordinating rhinestone to the centers.

Lastly, I took a sentiment from Sentiment Sampler and stamped my sentiment on the left hand side.  Distressed the panel with a bit of Tumbled Glass Distress ink and adhered it to a Vintage Cream card base.

I hope you were inspired today!  Thank you sooo much for stopping by!
