A Couple of Challenges

Hi Everyone! It has been a little quiet here this past week. Don't you hate it when life gets in the way of stamping!!!

My card today uses two challenges. The beautiful color scheme comes from Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge, which is a inspiration challenge. I used Inspiration 1. The sketch is based on Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #67.

This is the first time I have had a chance to ink up this pretty Flourishes stamp, from the stamp set From My Garden. I colored with copics and cut it out with my nestibilities. I did some machine stitching around the edges and on the middle panel.

The pretty paper is from Memory Box. I added lace, ribbon, and a bird charm from my stash. The edges are sponged with Tim Holtz distressing ink in Tea Dye.

Thanks for stopping by. My Favorite Things Teasers start on Saturday!!
