a vase of flowers

Good evening everyone,
I just got back from a stamp swap. I picked up the sweetest little vase of flowers and I couldn't wait to use it. Today I'm playing along with Freshly Made Sketches and Color Q.  My new stamp works perfect with both of these challenges .This is Rita's sketch

And here is the color combo


Here is the card I created using both challenges.


The supplies I used are paper,  inks, and water color pencils in the challenge colors from Stampin' Up.  Also from Stampin' Up Petite Pair stamp set and Stripe and Perfect Dots Embossing folders.  The flower stamp is from Serendipity.  I die cut my image with a Spellbinder die. And finished it off with a scrap of grosgrain ribbon that just happen to match up great with the Lucky Limeade card stock.  I hope you like my card and hope you'll stop back again soon.
HAPPY STAMPING

Beautifully created! I especially love how the striped embossing folder goes so well with the stamp. It almost looks like a white picket fence! Thanks for sharing with us at Freshly Made Sketches!
