Special Day in the Garden


I am playing along today with the Clean and Simple challenge at Splitcoast Stampers to create a card based on a sketch.  Now normally I don't do well with sketches, but this one came together just fine.  First I stamped the flower panel by masking the main flower and stamping the two on the sides.  I coloured them with Copic markers and added the black line to pull it all together.  I mounted that small panel on a piece of embossed white then mounted that onto a piece of orange with 2 scored lines to define the edges.  The flowers are from the new Penny Black set called Petal Party and the sentiment is from the set Gratitude.
Thanks so much for coming by to take a look and hope you have a great week.

Supplies:  stamps, Penny Black/ twine/ pearls/ corner chomper/ Mix and match cardstock/ Copic markers

Oh I like this! Love how you paired the kraft with another color. I love working with kraft but somehow, I just can't get the color combinations to work =(
