Just Breathe...

Hi all! Happy Thursday to you.  I thought I would share my latest creation.. I had been so wanting to ink up my Flourishes Ferns and Fiddles Stamps and the CR84FN color challenge #22 gave me just the inspiration I needed to break them out and stamp away! 8-)  Actually, I was able to squeeze in Mojo's Monday's sketch challenge contest #185 as well for this card.  I know there are some of you very talented cardmakers out there that are able to knock out several challenges with just one card, and I sure hope to get there someday LOL.  But for right now, I am just tickled to be able to combine a couple at a time.

I started off by stamping my Hero Arts La Letter stamp onto some Kraft cardstock with  Antique Linen Distress Ink and Layered my Flourishes Image over it with Memento Bamboo.  After inking the edges of my image panel, I matted it up with some Brown cardstock from my stash and some great DP from K&Co.  My Flourishes Sentiment was stamped with Memento Bamboo onto a layered little eyelet circle that I made up with my Eyelet Circles Nesties set and then popped it up with some dimensionals.  And I finished it all up with the help of a MS border punch, some fun ribbon from Michaels and a few little green pearls.  And there you have it, pretty easy peasy, huh? 8-)

Hope you are all having a lovely Thursday!  Thanks so much for visiting!
