2 Sketches 4 You #55


Hello friends! I hope you're enjoying your weekend so far. Once again, I've waited until the last day to submit a card for a challenge! What can I say, I work better under pressure!

This week, Laura's sketch at 2S4Y had me a little stumped, but I finally came up with something that I like.

I was inspired by some lovely paper from Cosmo Cricket's Everafter line, which coordinates beautifully with PTI's Terracotta Tile and Smokey Shadow. The layered flower was cut with PTI's flower dies, stamped with Beautiful Blooms II using Versamark, then heat embossed with clear powder. I decided not to include a sentiment because I thought it would be too busy.

Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Terracotta Tile, Smokey Shadow, Vintage Cream)
Patterned paper: Cosmo Cricket (Everafter line)
Stamps: Papertrey Ink (Beautiful Blooms II)
Ink: Versamark, Papertrey Ink (Chai tea dye)
Tools: Papertrey Ink (flower dies, Linen & Canvas impression plate), Marvy Uchida (square punch)
Accessories: Papertrey Ink (ribbon), Stampendous (embossing powder), button, thread

The inside of the card just has a strip of that pretty paper and tea dye inked edges.


Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have some time to get inky this weekend!
