Card a Day Challenge and Stamp Something Challenge

Apparently I am in a pink mood:) This card uses all scraps of paper I've had but it uses a brand new stamp set I just got. The set is from Clear Art Stamps and is called Rosy Wishes. I didn't have any stamps that had roses and I really liked this little bouquet of them. I also used a new Friskars Starburst punch I got at Target.

I stamped the roses in Antique Linen Distress ink so that the outline would be soft and then colored the image in with my Prismacolor pencils. The oval was cut and embossed with my Nesties. I added some sponging of Antique Linen to the edge of the oval and pierced it. The solid pink layer is embossed with my Cuttlebug, Swiss Dots folder. I stiched up the sides with my sewing machine and added a bit of transparent blue ribbon to the bouquet. The sentiment is from CHF. It reads"Plant a seed of friendship reap, a bouquet of happiness."

Jen over at Jen at the crazy scrapbooker is doing a challenge of making a card a day for this month and I wanted to jump in. Go check out her card today, super cute. And this also doubles for the Stamp Something challenge this week which was to stamp something new.

Thanks for visiting!
