Love You Forever


Yesterday was a cold and blustery day so after doing a few odds and ends around the house and swimming and walking Atticus, we hunkered down for some movie time!  No craftiness at all over the weekend so I'll be playing catch up for the next few days.  Today's card uses the colours from the Colour Throwdown and the sketch from Inkspirational.  I pulled out some of my older stamps for this one.  The flower is Hero Arts' Large Solid Flower but I have no idea who makes the flourish stamp.  Must dash and do something about my rumbling tummy but I'll be back later!


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Certainly Celery, Wisteria Wonder) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Large Solid Flower) Hero Arts, (Flourish) ?, (Sentiment from Faux Ribbon) Papertrey Ink

Yeah... thanks for not defining what you think is cold and blustery. Freezing rain here today, thank you very much. :D
What an awesome card! Love the ginormous flower, and those no-name flourishes are to-die-for with it.

Thanks for playing along at Inkspirational this week Jen. I love your take on the sketch. I love the use of the background image for the circle shape in the sketch and the flourishes just fill some 'otherwise' white spots beautifully.
