Enjoy Your Day

Hello everyone. I can really feel that spring is coming! It's starting to warm up and I noticed some new buds in my garden today. I really am tired of the cold weather, so this is a welcomed change. My card follows the shabby pattern inspiration challenge from The Shabby Tea Room.
You are asked to create a card or project inspired by the COLORS IN THE PHOTO and INCLUDE FLOWERS and DAMASK!

One great thing about this challenge was that I had a chance to go through my stash of papers. I always get a sense of relief to use something that has been stored for a very long time. The background paper was purchased approx 7yrs ago! Pays off to keep some things. I started building up a floral focus. I used some foliage and three sized roses. Here are some close ups..

And finally my sentiment...


Paper: Kaisercraft vanilla cardstock, Grant Archival scrappy chic, Glitz Design beautiful dreamer, Stampin' Up cardstock

Stamp: JustRite Stampers Heart to Heart set

Ink: Distress ink walnut stain

Other: Spellbinders shapeabilities foliage, Spellbinders nestabilities classic ovals large and floral ovals, Hooked on Craft flowers.

Thanks for stopping  by!
