For You!

Happy Saturday!  I am popping in with a card to share.

I am playing along with a few blog challenges.  Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge to add Red, Just Add Ink, and Freshly Made Sketches.

 I using some products from my Simon Says Stamp February Card Kit! I love the vintage vibe this card kit has.  I started with a piece of PTI select white card stock.  I used some post it tape to mask off the bottom right corner.  I sponged on Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry, and Candid Apple distressed oxide inks. I stamped the background that comes in the kit with versamark ink pad and heat embossed in white.  I sponged the edges of the whole panel using Aged Mahagony distressed oxide ink.

Next, I stamped the flowers and leaves from Even More Spring Flowers stamp set using Momento Tuxedo black ink.  I colored with copic markers.  I used a heart die in my stash for the sentiment.  I sponged that the same way and stamped the sentiment from Mandy's Flowers stamp set.

I stamped the floral heart in the Love Always stamp set using and heat embossed with antique gold embossing powder.

I arranged the images as best I could for the sketch.  I finished my card with a few clear sequins using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.  I do want to add that I used my Gemini Jr. for all the die cutting!  Love this machine!  

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
