Sending Smiles

Hello all!

This week I am playing along with Lucy's Lines Challenge over at Lily Pad Cards.

Here is Lucy's sweet and simple sketch. We also had to use a Penny Black stamp for out main image since they are sponsoring. Good thing I just bought some new ones huh ? ;)

Here is my card
I started by stamping the flower (To You, Penny Black) twice on each patterned paper (Tickled Pink, My Mind's Eye). I fussy cut out the whole flower of the first one. I only cut out the smaller folded over petals from the second one. I stamped the flower 3 times on white card stock then colored them with shabby shutters and a foam applicator. I cut them out with just enough flower at the top to adhere my paper pieced flowers. I layered the two flower pieces with foam tape and adhered them flat to the stems. *I also cut off their leaves*

I cut my kraft card stock to a standard size and rounded two corners. I adhered the flowers down flat then added two cut out leaves. Stamp the sentiment (Sending Smiles, Hero Arts) in jet black archival ink (Ranger).

For the twine I wanted them to be evenly spaced so I drew a light pencil line using a ruler then laid down a line of glue and adhered the twine. I trimmed off the edges and added my bow (made with my bow easy).

A sprinkling of hot pink pearls and I'm done :)

I'm off the play games with my girlfriends, Happy Thursday to you and thanks for stopping by!!
