On a flower kick....

I just HAD to show you a close up of this sentiment....It's one of my favorites! I took my BV000 marker and swiped over my favorite words in this sentiment too.
Pure stamping, I don't do it that often anymore with all that yummy patterned paper that is on the market but sometimes it feels so good to get back to the roots of stamping!
I stamped my background in "London Fog" memento is such a pretty grey that looks wonderful with lavenders.
I cut out my flowers with the peony die from Spellbinders on Claudine Hellmuths' sticky back canvas. I stamped the canvas in eggplant ink and scuffed the ribbon....hmmm, nothing I had matched! I took some white cotton ribbon from the fabric store and airbrushed it to match (BV08)....perfect!
Here are all the deets:

Stunning card, Sherrie. Lots of great details and lovely color scheme. Good idea to get back to making your own patterned paper - you're right, that option is overlooked a LOT!!
