bloom...

Hey friends!!  Popping with a card that I made for several challenges.  The current Essentials by Ellen Mix It Up challenge is asking us to mix our Essentials by Ellen products with products from Concord & 9th.  I recently got some happy mail in the form of a new EE stamp set (from the late summer release) and several stamp sets and dies from Concord & 9th.  I combined the Mix It Up challenge with the current Color Throwdown and Freshly Made Sketches challenges.  Since the Simon Says Stamp Monday and Wednesday challenges are "stamp it" I will also be adding my card to those line ups.  I cut a piece of white cardstock and then stamped it with the Barnwood Background using light grey ink.  The large blossom from the Brushed Blossom stamp set was stamped using yellow ink and then the leaves were added using aqua ink.  I then overlaid the die cut on top and stamped the sentiment from the Essentials by Ellen Lovely set in black ink.  The Barnwood Background was stamped again using the same aqua ink and trimmed to fit my yellow card base.  I finished things off by adding some pale yellow Pretty Pink Posh sequins. 

Hope you have a wonderful day...


Supplies:  Cardstock:  white, PTI Lemon Tart and True Black; Stamps:  Essentials by Ellen and Concord & 9th; Dies:  Concord & 9th; Inks:  VersaFine Onyx Black, Memento Dandelion, SU! Coastal Cabana, SSS fog; Pretty Pink Posh sequins
