late night stamping

I should really be in bed. I have to get up in about 5 hours, but I was on a roll and really wanted to get this card done. This is another for the CLASSroom challenges.

I first stamped the sentiment in pacific point on soft sky card stock. Then I randomly stamped the sprig, stamping off once first. I added faux stitching with a not quite navy marker. Then I cut two strips of creamy caramel and faux stitched those to use as faux ribbon.

I then stamped the flower in pacific point on vanilla, faux stitched the edge, layered it on night of navy and added a jewel brad in the center of the flower. The ribbon is just tied around the layered panel and then the panel is raised on foam tape. Another easy card.

stamps: true friend
ink: pacific point, not quite navy
paper: night of navy, soft sky, very vanilla, creamy caramel
other: jewel brad, crop-a-dile, turquoise and navy grosgrain ribbon, foam tape

Thanks for stopping by. Be blessed.
