Happy Cinco de Mayo!

With the help of my Spanish stamp sets, Flores Suaves and Gracias, I created this card for Color Challenge #11 on the Stampin’ Addicts site and Jen del Muro’s Sketch for You to Try (5/2/09). These colors seemed perfect to brighten up this rainy day in Maryland.

The Bashful Blue panels were embossed with a SU! texturz plate. I stamped the flower with Riding Hood Red ink on Whisper White card stock and stippled So Saffron ink around the image. The sentiment was stamped with Pacific Point and punched out, then adhered with dimensionals after the edge was sponged with Tangerine Tango ink. A little bit of taffeta ribbon tied to a mini clip finishes off the card.

Thanks for stopping by!
