I decided to go all scrappy with this card and I brought out the very first Inspired By Flowers set, Set 1. I've always LOVED this carnation image. I stamped it on some patterned paper, colored it with Copic markers, and went to town with the sketch. I stamped the sentiment, from the recently released Inspired By Months Of the Year on a Ticket Tab Die-namics die cut and attached it to the image panel with some zig zag stitching. I decided to leave the ends loose for a little textural interest. I used my Simply Scalloped, Medium Die-namics die for the border, did some more stitching, and added some twine and a button to finish off the sketch. I really like how this card turned out.
For the INSIDE of the card, I stamped the carnation again, stamped off once, and a sentiment from the set.
And that's it! Thanks so much for stopping by!
