...and here is my card:
I typically stamp my main image and look for awesome, coordinating patterned paper to add to my base panels. For today's card I cut out three layers of my bloom from PTI's In Bloom patterned paper, and stamped all of my other panels. Oh and yes, I'm stuck on PTI's Fancy Flourishes stamps as well ;] On the flower I popped up the two top layers using dimensionals and I colored the center of the flower with my VersaMark pen and heat-set with white embossing powder. I stamped the rust panel under my flower with Tim Holtz' Vintage Photo Distress Ink using PTI's Background Basics: Text Style, and then stamped some Fancy Flourishes with VersaMark and heat set with White embossing powder. I stamped a flourish design using the Antique Linen ink on my main rust panel, and stamped my pattern on the blue cs using the large In Bloom flower and Fresh Snow PTI ink.
I used a Martha Stewart punch with vellum and In Bloom patterned paper for my butterfly. The vellum layer was in my stash...I stamped it a LONG time ago. I added some blue pearl rhinestones and adhered with a glue dot. I rounded alternating top corners on my panels and main layer and added some pretty blue twill ribbon I found at Michaels. Isn't it pretty? I love it!
For my tag sentiment, I'll give credit right to Mona for that one! She is the master of creating sentiment tags! Hers turn out so beautifully every time. Well, this is my stab at it ;] I cut a piece of the In Bloom patterned paper and adhered it to the main tag before stitching them together.
My layout is from the very talented, Mercy Kerin's Tuesday Sketch Challenge (MTSC48)! I flipped it to fit my design and I'm so happy I did! I needed the extra space for my sentiment ;]
