Sweet Peas

Happy Friday!!!! I am SO ready for the weekend!!!

This card is for SCS Sketch Challenge #215 and SCS Color Challenge #205. The colors this week are Perfect Plum, Pink Pirouette, and Kiwi Kiss. PERFECT for Basic Grey's Eva paper. And this SweetPea Lockhart stamp is also perfect for it :)

My base card is Whisper White with a layers of Kiwi Kiss, Perfect Plum, and Eva DP from the 6 x 6 pad. The vertical element is Kiwi Kiss and Perfect Plum with some paper piercing to dress it up. The next element is more Kiwi Kiss, Perfect Plum, and more DP and is up on 3M foam squares. The focal element was stamped on Solar White card stock from PTI with Memento Tuxedo Black in and colored with Copic markers (see below for colors used). It's cut/embossed with a square Nestabilities die and matted with Perfect Plum and Kiwi Kiss. I tied a ribbon around it with some double sided Kiwi Kiss/Vanilla satin ribbon and mounted it on more foam squares. A couple Dew Drops from the Orchid collection was all else it needed, I think. No sentiment so I can go in several ways with this card: birthday, just because, sympathy, etc.
