Happy Saturday!  I had a little bit of time in my crafty space supposedly cleaning it to make a card.  I am playing along with a few blog challenges for this card.  I am playing along with  Papertrey's Make It Monday Challenge.   This week is randomly stamped backgrounds.  
I am using the sketch from this week's Seize the Sketch.  My inspiration came from this week's The Ribbon Reel Challenge.  Love the bold contrast with the chevrons and the flowers.  I am playing A Passion for Papertrey's Challenge, too!   The challenge is 3 embellishments.  I used ample restraint and ONLY used three clear gems in the center of my flowers.  So hard! LOL!

I am using PTI's With All My Heart stamp set and the Limitless Layers Hearts dies.  I mixed harvest gold, raspberry fizz, hibiscus burst inks for flowers and simply chartreuse for leaves.  I used Memento tuxedo black for sentiment.  I also used PTI rustic white and true black card stocks.  MFT chevron dies.  I topped the focal flowers with a few clear gems.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!



  1. I'm with you Betty, those black chevrons with the flowers is such a stunning combo! Great card :)
