Caardvarks Challenge - Don't quote me

The Caardvark's challenge is to use a quote on a card. This card is actually a circle card. I laid it on brown cardstock to show off the colors.

I love this little black and white flower stamp from Hero Arts. It makes such a beautiful background!


  • Impression Obsession - C5319 Lofty Dreams
  • Hero Arts - Black & White Flower
  • Hero Arts - Monarch Butterfly
  • Fiskars Circle Templates / Shape Express Cutter
  • Clear Embossing Powder
  • Versafine - Vintage Sepia
  • Ranger Distress Inks - Shabby Shutters, Tea Dye
  • Vellum

I have a second card using the same techniques (Sponging, Resist) but with a very different feel coming along. If work lets up a little I will try to finish it tonight so I can share with you tomorrow.

Have a great day!
