Hello, Wonderful You

November 11th, 2008 · 34 Comments

Hello, Wonderful You

I really love the colors Kristina Werner picked for her challenge this week (#30): Old Olive, Certainly Celery, Sahara Sand, and Whisper White. I was inspired by the duvet cover in the picture; perhaps you can tell?

I inked up the Stems & Silhouettes jumbo wheel by rolling it across the Sahara Sand ink pad and then rolled it on Whisper White card stock. The Wonderful You flowers were stamped and then cut out; two of them were adhered to the card with dimensionals. The sentiment was stamped vertically with the retired Rough Edges Mini Alphabets stamp set. A piece of wide Certainly Celery grosgrain ribbon finishes off the card.

Thanks for stopping by!
