Oh my. Today's sketch snuck up on me. I think it was the long weekend that did it. Yup. That is my excuse. Anyway, the sketch for today's challenge at Create with Connie and Mary is such a great sketch I was able to create my card in no time. Phew!
My card began with some soon-to-be-retired Gingham Garden designer paper.
Some of the tiny flowers on the paper are Night of Navy so I used that color for my layers. I love the crisp contrast it makes between the paper and also the embossed Whisper White card stock.
My flowers are from the Stippled Blossoms stamp set. LOVE that set! Again, I used the colors from the designer paper for my flowers. To create the contrast in the flowers - since it is a two step stamp, I stamped off 2 times with the solid stamp. The detail stamp was inked and stamped full strength. I did both flowers and the leaves like that. Once I fussy cut my flowers I used dimensionals for the Melon Mambo rose to give it a little extra height.
All supplies are Stampin' Up!
