Sent with Love

This vintage card was created using the Sent with Love set by Gina K.  I started by cutting a piece of Whisper White paper using the Nesties large classic ovals #5 die.  The floral image was stamped in StazOn Black and colored with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol.  The flowers were done in Light Cerulean Blue and the leaves in a combination of Limepeel and Old Olive.

The edges of the oval were distressed and sponged with ColorBox Chalk Creamy Brown.  The main image was adhered to a piece of Soft Suede which was cut using the Spellbinders lacey ovals #5 die.  Three Bashful Blue brads were added to the center of the flowers.

The dreamy background paper is Cappella by Basic Grey and was adhered to a piece of Soft Suede.  I added the Martha Stewart cloud ribbon before mounting everything to a Glacial Blue card.

A closer look at the flowers.

Enjoy your weekend everyone.  I will be gardening and working on a few wedding cards.

Hi Donna,

Pretty card! Looks almost as if it is a ceramic trivet! The lines were so crisp and clear on the flowers and leaves, then of course I saw the sponging and read further. Very nice.

I just planted lilac bushes in my back yard! I see yours on the side of your blog, and remind myself, one day, some day!!

Thank you for sharing, Donna.
