...Wildflower Joy

Happy Sunday, everyone! As you all know, the March Verve release took place Friday night...and I am LOVING these sets! Not a bad stamp in the bunch! I especially love this sentiment from the "Feel The Sun" stamp set...and wanted to showcase it with vivid colors. I chose to use Red Cardstock as a card base, and paired it with some patterned papers from the Report Card and Farm Fresh paper packs by October Afternoon. I stitched the panels together with my Janome Sewing Machine, and attached them to the embossed and distressed Red Cardstock background panel. I pierced the edges of the large red panel, and also sponged them with White Craft Ink and a Sponge Dauber. The sentiment and flower were stamped in Black Ink onto PTI White Cardstock, and cut out with Circle Nesties and a Big Shot. I stamped the flower again on a scrap piece of white cardstock, colored it with Copic Sketch Markers, cut out the blossom and leaves, then attached them the focal panel with Dimensionals.

That's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by to see me! I have a fun-filled day of laundry and carpet cleaning planned...so I'd better get some rest! :) Until tomorrow...
