Welcome to my little corner of the vast God planned domain. I plan to share mostly my card projects here, you might even possible see some scrapping, quilt projects, and photography. Who knows I may even try other craft projects. Might even share a selection of little recipe cards I have collected over the past few years - scrapped, of course. There may even be some little things of greatness of my daily life. Every now and then, I might even vent!

The Earth Laughs

Looking through the SCS gallery last night I found a card done by sleepyinseattle that I really liked there fore I decided to case it.  I then found the CC324 and decided to case this card in the same colors and also used the MOJO192.  Thanks sleepy. She is one of my favorites to get inspiration from.

Keywords: CC324 Mojo192 Fabulous Florets
Stamps: Fabulous Florets
Paper: Soft Suede, Baja Breeze, Perfect Plum, Very Vanilla
Ink: same as paper
Accessories: Border and Label punches, Marina Mist Gross grain ribbon, Dimensionals, Square Lattice Embossing folder

I used the soft suede as my card base, layered on that perfect plum and baja breeze each using the scallop punch from SU.  Stamped the foliage from Fabulous Florets with Soft Suede and the smaller flowers on Very Vanilla and Perfect plum using the plum ink. I dabbed some perfect plum onto the vanilla flower to give it some color. I then stamped the sentiment onto very vanilla and cut into an oval with a SU punch and used other  label punches to make the background for it using the baja, plum and suede. Tied a Marina mist ribbon around the layers and added a bow.  I also used dimensionals behind the plum florets and the oval sentiment.

Thanks for sharing your comments as they are very much appreciated.
