That's my name for this card. Ok, well not really. But I loved this week's Color Combo Challenge on Splitcoast, and the Sketch Challenge was rockin too! So I combined them, and here you go!
I really like how this turned out (although I have to admit that I'm more happy about having a chance to stamp)!! I sat down knowing I wanted to use my new Basic Grey Mellow paper & this Rust colored ribbon by May Arts.
I started with a base of Papertrey White measuring 8.5" x 5.5", and folded that in half. I adhered my layers of Chocolate Chip (5.25" x 4") and River Rock (5" x 3.75") together and then stitched the panel of Mellow paper (3" x 4") with my sewing machine.
The bottom corners are pierced with my mat stack and paper piercing tool, and the sentiment from Verve's Thoughtful Phrases set is stamped in Chocolate Chip. Using the sketch as inspiration, I tied the wide satin ribbon around in a knot.
For the main image, I wanted a clean, simple look, so I started by stamping the small flower from Office Accoutrement in Really Rust on White Cardstock. Then I stamped the stems and leaves from Papertrey's Green Thumb set in Old Olive. Matted that onto chocolate chip and popped it up on Pop Dots.
I hope I get some more time tonight...I cleaned my stamp room so I can get it all messy again! *wink*
Have a great Friday!
