Apothocary Art: Sketch Challenge

Good evening friends.  We've come to the end of another busy, fun-filled weekend, why is it that the week seems to move slowly but the weekends are gone in a flash?  Tonight I wanted to share with you my card for this weeks Stamping 411 challenge.  Tomorrow is the last day to purchase items from the Occasions Mini catalog and I couldn't believe that I have not used the Apothecary Art stamp set since I purchased it months ago.  This is such a pretty stamp set and so easy to use with the matching Labels Framelits.  The greeting is from the Loving Thoughts stamp set.  After stamping the image and cutting it out with the Big Shot and framelits I colored in the flowers with Stampin' Write markers and sponged the edges with Crumb Cake ink.  The cardbase is Crumb Cake and I ran a piece of Pool Party cardstock through the Big Shot with the Lattice embossing folder.   

The beautiful floral designer series paper is from the Attic Boutique DSP and is only guaranteed to be available through tomorrow.  I also added some Pool Party Seam Binding Ribbon and a nice fluffy bow.  The final touch was to take a small Old Olive flower button, tied a bow with linen thread and added it to the center of the bow.  I also had to make a matching envelope with the same DSP and was nice and simple with the Simply Scored and new Diagonal scoring plate.  This card is so soft and pretty, love it.

Have a great week!

Pin It!
