Flowers of Kindness - JUGS14 " (2 of 2)

"Just Us Girls" Sketch Challenge! Here is my second card for this challenge. I wanted to make a card that only used Stampin' Up! products. The two stamp sets are both retired - sorry (Echoes of Kindness & Dream a Little). The stamp with the two birds is an incentive stamp. The card base is Close to Cocoa card stock. The brown polka-dot paper is from the Chocolate Chip DSP. The pink strip is actually Blush Blossom card stock, that I ran through my Perfect Polka Dot embossing sleeve. I used the scallop circle to punch that piece out of Very Vanilla card stock. I used the 1 1/4" circle punch to create the inside circle, and I used dimensionals to lift the circle off the scallop circle. I stamped 'dream' on a scrap piece of Very Vanilla card stock (I used the curly label punch to create that shape). I inked some of the edges with a sponge and close to cocoa classic ink, to help give the card stock some dimension. The matted flower piece is lifted off the card with dimensionals. I used my blender pen with Blush Blossom classic ink, Certainly Celery classic ink, and Pretty in Pink classic ink to color the flowers, leaves, and stem. I used my glue pen to outline the flowers and added Dazzling Diamonds.
Thank you for looking!

Sharon, I am so glad you posted a comment on my blog, as it has been a real treat to visit yours! I especially like your background! Anyway, your JUGS challenges, both of them, are just lovely! I can't wait to get my Vintage set--the first one I ordered was in French! Ooops! The colors you've used are just lovely!
