The sketch is the Viva la Verve February 2012 Week 3 sketch, and the color palette is CR84FN49.
The sentiment panel, flower, and leafy sprigs are all raised up with foam dots.
Eyelets on the vertical flag. The paint peeled a little bit, but I like the look on this card.
I stamped the flower once in Vintage Photo ink, then again in Mustard Seed, slightly offsetting the second stamping, then cut it out with a Scalloped Circle Nestie. Then, I adhered the button to the flower with hot glue, using just a little more than necessary so it would form the little nubs in the holes.
I decided not to add a sentiment to the inside of the card, instead just decorating it with the same flowers I used on the front. I just loved coloring them. For the edges of the white panel, I used a deckle-edged ruler and moistened the paper just a little bit before tearing. I then sponged Mustard Seed Distress Ink along the edge of the paper and followed that with a light swiping of Vintage Photo. I can't believe I've had these stamps so long and haven't used them like this before. They are really pretty grouped together.
Well, that's all I have to share with you today. Looks like I may actually get to bed before midnight tonight! :)
Thanks for stopping by!
