Stamping In Time #15
I really enjoy taking part in certain challenges like the ones at Our Daily Bread Designs because it gives me the opportunity to make cards that are a little more elegant. I have been participating in ODBD's Shining the Light challenge and have added their Stamping in Time On Assignment (SNTODBD15) challenge to my growing list. This week's challenge was to use a "go to" sketch for your card. I don't have a particular sketch that I return to over and over again, but I do have a sketch blog that I return to over and over again: Clean & Simple. Lately I have used one Clean & Simple sketch (which I have posted) for several cards and I'm using it again for this card. The stamps I used are from the ODBD set Grow in Grace, which I just love. The dogwood image is gorgeous and the sentiments/verses are beautiful.
I punched the bottom edge of the cream cardstock piece and then stamped the dogwood image on the cream cardstock with River Rock and then on a scrap of cream in Pretty in Pink. The three flowers were trimmed out and popped up on the main image. I slightly overstamped the verse over the main image as well. I added a few little rhinestones and some yummy cream organdy ribbon to finish it off.
Thanks for taking a peek... have a wonderful day!
