Elements of Style

Good Morning, Everyone and Happy Saturday! 

It is a beautiful, sunny day here and hopefully much of our ice and snow mixture will melt.  I hit the craft room early this morning and made a card for 2 challenges at SCS- for the inspiration challenge and for the Lovefest challenge, sponsored by MFT. 

I decided to go with the colors blue and yellow, based on my inspiration piece, but then I added in Cajun craze to define the embossed bricks a bit more.  I inked up the embossing folder with the Cajun Craze pad and embossed.  I stamped the flower in More Mustard two times.  I colored the images with More Mustard and So Saffron using a blender pen.  I fussy cut flowers that I wanted to pop up on dimensions.  I cut an Island Indigo vine using my favorite flourish die.  The bow was made using Becca's Bow Maker.  'Friends' is from the Tiny Tags set and is punched out with the jewelry tag punch. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!
