Friends & Flowers

I saw a fun sketch from Ellen Hutson Classroom on Lin's wonderful blog and decided to join in the fun.


I pulled out some paper which of course didn't make it onto the final card but it inspired the use of the damask stamp and damask embossing folder on my card.  I also had this beautiful bouquet of flowers (Making Memories)  that worked with the sentiment perfectly. 

The verse is from Verses Rubber Stamps - Flowers in Bloom - FS1119-D. The damask stamp is Hero Arts Cling - Classic Fabric Design stamped in Memento London Fog.  The sentiment is stamped using Stone Grey StazOn.  The background is embossed using a Sizzix Embossing folder and sponged with white acrylic paint.

Here is the sketch:

Have a wonderful Monday!
