Happy Monday!  It is Labor Day so No School today!  I love teaching, but I love breaks, too!  Anyway, I have a card to share since I had some time to get crafty!   I am playing along with a couple blog challenges.

I am using MFT Stamps supplies.  I started with a smooth white card stock base.  I stamped die cut a stitched panel from Blueprints 25.  I distressed stamped Fine Check background in soft sno ink.  Next, I die cut a pierced rectangle stax and embossed with the Modern Morocco die namic.    I die cut a pierced tag stax and layered the Modern Blooms in shades of wild wisteria and pure plum.  I stamped the leaves with soft sno in keeping with the color scheme.  I added contrast to the flowers and leaves with black licorice.

For the sentiment, I die cut a stitched sentiment strip from Blueprints 20 in black licorice.  I stamped the sentiment from Spring Tulips in versamark and white embossed.  I added some loose looped threading for the tag tie and finished with a few sequins. I am playing along with this week's ColourQ and MFT Weekly Sketch Challenge.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!



  1. Beautiful card, Betty. I love the contrast of the dark coloured flowers with the pastel shades in the rest of the card. I'm not getting a lot of cardmaking done at the moment while my craft room is having a makeover so I'm taking the time to admire other's work instead :) Elizabeth xx
