Two posts in one day - I MUST be feeling better! This card is for SCS Sketch Challenge 163, and also for Allison's Suggestive Sunday. Allison's challenge to us was to use a $1.00 stamp as the main focal image. I had these scraps laying on my table (REALLY have to take some time to clean up!) and put this together. I saw the cuttlebugged layer swiped with ink on Julee's Poetic Artistry blog and thought it was stunning, so I had to use that idea.
The ribbon has been in my stash since last year. The stamps are Studio G, and the colors used for ink are Cool Caribbean and Close to Cocoa. I used MM brads and Stickles on the flowers, and a rhinestone on the swirl of the sentiment panel. I found the perfect spot of sunshine on DH's desk to snap the photo.
I'm also entering this into Bela's Creating Place challenge to use no patterned papers. Thanks for looking!
