a card for Card Patterns Sketch 57

Happy April!! My friends! This week's Card Patterns challenge is sponsored by Hero Arts, so I decided to join the fun.

I used this gorgeous Long Stem Flowers stamp that I got at Michael's as my focal point. The Nesties Labels Nine die cut is stamped with Friend Definition then inked with rusty hinge.

The card base is stamped using one of the images from the gorgeous Speckled Ornaments set using tea dye. The sentiment is from this set.

I used a piece of lacy trim that I got at JoAnn a while ago, so I think this qualifies me for CAARDvarks Lacy Days challenge.

That's all I have for today. Hope you have a lovely day! =)


Thanks for stopping by!


ingredients used:
cardstock, ribbon: Papertrey Ink
stamps: Hero Arts
inks: Memento, Tim Holtz Distress Ink
coloring tool: Copic
trim: JoAnn

What a beautiful card, great take on the sketch too. Those Poppies are so pretty and I love the way you stamped and distressed the label die you used for a matte under it. What a great idea!
