Stamps Only Sunday

Good Morning!  I hope your weekend is going really well.  I have a really fun card to share with you today that I made to participate with The Crafty Pad challenge which was to use pearls and Sunday Sketch and Stamp which was to use their great sketch.



This was a really fun card to make.  I pulled out some hoarded decorative paper from SU!.  Yay me!  I'm digging in the stash.



I also created the flowers by using Penny Duncan's roses SVG except that I only used the base of the petals in two different sizes to create these flowers.  They were really easy to make.  Penny, I hope I did you proud.  I added the pearls for the center - they are white, but using a Copic marker I "stained" them a bit.

Supplies:
Stamps/Ink:  Swiss Pixies Nora on a Swing, Amy R Spring Stamps Sentiments, Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Card Stock: Neenah Classic Crest, White & Cream (Recollections)
Paper:  Soft Sky decorative paper (SU!)
Copics:  B000, B60, B63, B97, B99, BV00, BV02, E00, E02, E33, E37, E53, E57, Y15, Y17,
  YR20, YR23, YG95
Tools:  Cricut/SCAL, SVG by Penny Duncan, Oval cutters (CM)
Embellishments:  Pearls (Recollections)

I hope you enjoy my card and that your Sunday is a blessed one.  Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful card! It's so neat how your frame for the little girl overlaps the tree branch and then the tree continues. Beautiful roses, too -- love how you shaded them with your markers! Hugs, Deedee
