Hello friends! It's a rainy day here, so I turned to the current color challenge at CR84FN for a little sunshine! These fresh colors are paired up with this week's sketch at Card Patterns.
I've been doing a lot of CAS cards lately, so I felt like going a tiny bit shabby on this one. I used several stamps from SU's Nature Walk to create a little botanical collage on white cardstock, then stamped French script over the top with Ranger's Antique Linen Distress Ink. I used PTI's Linen & Canvas impression plate to add some texture to the panel before matting it with Hawaiian shores cardstock.
On the card base is a Lemon Tart panel embossed with Framed Tulips, a gift from my sweet friend Nance. I added a strip of New Leaf cardstock and a Hawaiian Shores border cut with PTI's Victorian Lace border die. The wrinkled ribbon was originally white, but I sponged it with Distress Ink to match the sponging on the rest of the card.
For the sentiment, I stamped "best wishes" from PTI's Mat Stack 2 Collection onto a banner, then added a few pearls as accents.
