Happy Hump Day!
Let me start this post off by saying that I am SUCH an idiot! Last Wednesday I posted a card for our sketch sympathy challenge that was supposed to be THIS week!!! So, to make up for it, and since last week I used the sketch but not the sympathy sentiment, today's card uses the sympathy sentiment but not the sketch!!! LOL!!! I must drive Mary (Owner of Serendipity) NUTS!!!! LOLOLOL!!!
Here is my card ~
The layout is based on this weeks Clean & Simple stamping ~ FTL93. The base of this card is Vintage Cream with a mat of Dark Chocolate and then a pattern of October Afternoon's Fly a Kite Collection. I added some stitching using my Janome Sew Mini sewing machine. The beautiful Sweet Pea image is from Serendipity Stamps and was stamped directly on the grid Fly a Kite paper using Cocoa Momento ink. I colored using a blender pen and Pink Pirouette and Old Olive ink. The blue on the butterfly is a Ranger reinker called Tumbled Glass. I used my blender pen to color it on the butterfly. The polka dot strip is also from the Fly a Kite Collection. I have had the blue & brown May Arts ribbon for years! I was so excited to finally get to use it because it matched PERFECTLY!!!! I LOVE when that happens!!! I stamped the sentiment, from Serendipity's Pansy Corner set, using Cocoa Momento on the same grid paper as the image. I cut it out using one of my Spellbinders label punches and then added a heart charm I got from Stampers Dream HERE. The stick pin is from Making Memories.
This week my Serendipity teammates will have played along since this is the correct week to post!!! I know, it's kind of scary that I drive a car and even worse, REPRODUCED!!!! LOLOLOLOLOL!!!!
Before I go, I'll repost my card from last week that was a Sympathy/Father's Day card!
Have a wonderful day!
