Stamps Only Sunday

Good Afternoon everyone!  I hope you've had an enjoyable weekend so far.  I have a quick post for you for today.  My friend Katie Skiff is having a Back to School blog party and her first challenge (and 2nd) has been issued.  The first one is a great sketch created by Katie.  So here's my card....

I had a lot of fun with this one.  It's very clean and simple... lots of white space.  I used one of the Spring Pixies by CC Designs.  I also have discovered that I really love this faux suede technique where the card stock is distressed and pulled apart.  I did that to create the grass.  I also found a cool tutorial to create the flower using a button, red-line sticky tape and glitter.

Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Pretty in Pink
Paper:  Just Chillin' collection (Making Memories)
Stamps/Ink:  Sweet Pixie (CC Designs), Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Copics:  B00, B000, E00, E02, E33, E37, RV000, RV02, RV10, RV13, YR20
Embellishments:  button (my stash), green glitter, red-sticky tape

I hope you join the party over at Katie's blog.  She's got some really great prizes.  I will be back later with the 2nd challenge she issued.  Have a great rest of your weekend and thank you for stopping by.
