Blessings - JUGS14 (1 of 2)

"Just Us Girls" Sketch Challenge! (One sketch and two cards.) Here is the card I submitted for the JUGS14 Sketch Challenge. I wanted to make a card that had no 'limits' or restrictions as to who's products I used. I think if your products are the best, everyone will use them, right? So, as you can see, most of the products are from Stampin' Up!
The card base is Blue Bayou (retired). The pattern paper matted on the card base is Baja Breeze DSP (retired). I ran the strip of Certainly Celery card stock through my Polk Dot embossing folder. I stamped the flower from Vintage Vogue, in Baja Breeze classic ink, and hand cut the flower out. I used a new Pretty in Pink Corduroy Button for the flower center. I used Dimensionals to lift the flower off the card. I used Shimmer White card stock for my rectangle. It is matted on a piece of Blue Bayou and I used dimensionals to lift this piece off the card. I used stamps from the With Sympathy (PTI) stamp set. I stamped the leaves in Certainly Celery classic ink. The rose buds are stamped in Baja Breeze classic ink. I stamped the butterflies in Pretty in Pink classic ink, and gave them 'flight' with my glue pen and Dazzling Diamonds glitter. The greeting 'Blessings' is from Fall Elegance (PTI). I stamped the greeting in Bravo Burgundy classic ink. (I thought that black would be too harsh, and brown would be too washed out.)
Thank you for looking.
