I'm flying through my challenges this week and having lots of fun! My card today was inspired by the Stars and Stamps Sketch Challenge #3. I never know where or what sentiments to use so for this card I swapped out the sentiment and instead added ribbon and a bow. I really wanted to use this pansy stamp but the flowers ended up being a tad too big for the center strip so I shifted them up just a bit and walla!
My Pink Pansies card base is Yam Bazzill layered with a slightly smaller piece of Pretty In Pink cardstock then Delilah patterned paper. The center strip is Yam layered on to a strip of Pretty In Pink I trimmed on both sides using the Scallop Edge Punch. The flowers were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on PTI White using the Pansy stamp and colored in using Copic Markers. I wrapped cream grosgrain ribbon around the card base and tie a bow in front. I just love the shimmer in this cream ribbon!!! And to add a little personal touch to the card I added an acrylic jewel at the center of each pansy!
Thanks for looking! Hope you have a great day!
