…and my interpretation.

SAB Stamps and Sketch Challenges 006

This is a super easy sketch from our own Selene Kempton. She fabulous when it comes to creating these for us. We so appreciate you Selene!!

My card base is White (oh what a surprise)!!! It’s cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and the front of it is run through the Big Shot using my Polka Dot Embossing Folder.

The Old Olive Mat measures 3 1/4 x 4 3/4 before I punched it. The image piece I’ve done features Awash with Flowers…a Sneak Peek from our Catalog that will be released in July. Isn’t it cute? That piece measure 3 x 3. I stamped with Black and filled in the flowers with Always Amethyst and Lovely Lilac. The leaves and stems are done in Old Olive Pad and Marker.

The bow is done using the our delicious white Satin Ribbon. I love, love, love this ribbon. It’s so easy to work with and really jazzes up a card, don’t you think?

I guess that’s it today, except I hope you will visit the Stamping 411 blog and play along.

…now go on and have a ……….

Have a Stampinglee Good Day
