Blog Candy Sketch - Spring Solitude


This is a card I have made for Glenda (SCS gallery) and Angie Britt (no blog). They both favor Beate's WSC#29 Sketch which you can see right here .

For this card I have used the fabulous Hostess II Set - *Spring Solitude*. It is such a pretty Set and I don't use it that often....and today I thought it would work great for this particular Sketch!!!

This card measures 5" x 5". I have started out with the long strip of Chocolate Chip CS and adhered it. Next I have added the DS Blue Bayou Ribbon.

For the main image I have stamped the flowers randomly with Pumpkin Pie Ink. Then I have stamped one solid flower image with PP and cut it out. Next I've layered it on top of the main image and added a Copper Brad in the center. The stem and the leaves were colored with Chocolate Chip and Old Olive Markers. The *bird* was inked with Blue Bayou both images were cut out and raised with Stampin Dimensionals.

Next I have used the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to line up the sentiment from the same Setand punched it out with a 1" cirlcle Punch. Then I've layered it onto a 1 1/4" circle Blue Bayou CS. It was also raised with Stampin Dimensionals. To finish it all off I have added some Silver Brads. Voila!!!

Glenda and Angie - I hope you like what I have done with your favorite Sketch??? ~TFL~

So gorgeous (as always). I LOVE this set. I try not to use it so much so that I can try the other sets that I have.

Ya know, every time I pull a white card stock I think of you. I'd be thinking... ok, keep it clean, keep it white, don't mess up this white paper so that it'll end up like Silke's.

Thanks for all the comments! I really appreciate it!!! :)
