TESC #118

Hi folks! It has been very hot and humid here the last couple of days, which meant lots of browsing air-conditioned stores yesterday and little time in the craft room! But I managed to whip something up this morning for the sketch of the week at Taylored Expressions. Check out those cute scallops!

I decided to cut into another piece of patterned paper from my stash! I love this pattern from October Afternoon's Thrift Shop collection. I decided to mimic it in the focal image by stamping a small flower from Beautiful Blooms II and some leaves from Turning a New Leaf, both by PTI. The sentiment is from Mega Mixed Messages. I thought I was all done, then decided to add the pearls, and I really think they complete the card.

Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Vintage Cream, Pure Poppy)
Patterned paper: October Afternoon (Thrift Shop collection)
Stamps: Papertrey Ink (Turning a New Leaf, Beautiful Blooms II, Mega Mixed Messages)
Ink: Papertrey Ink (Dark Chocolate, Ripe Avocado, Chamomile Tea Dye), Clearsnap (Cranberry)
Tools: Spellbinders (scalloped circle die), Papertrey Ink (scalloped border die), EK Success (corner rounder)
Accessories: Papertrey Ink (ribbon), Michaels (pearls)

Simple on the inside, as always. Everything got a good dose of Chamomile ink from PTI's Tea Dye Duo. This stuff still intimidates me, but it softens as it dries and I do like the aged look and warmth it adds.

I hope you're able to stay cool today, wherever you are! Thanks for stopping by!

Looooove this card! The scallops are super cute and the way you've interpreted the little flowers is so inspired! I can't believe how much love the inside of your cards get too! Amazing. This is such a pretty card - it makes me feel happy all over!

This is so cute! I am so impressed with how you combined the stamps to make the circle image to match the paper!! Way to go girl!
