Happy Monday! We've had a whirlwind of a weekend, and are just now getting caught up! Our kids won't be starting school until after Labor Day weekend (next weekend), so we are trying to enjoy every last minute of Summer!
Today I've got a fun card to share with you. It feels kind of "scrappy" to me...even though almost everything is stamped. Not sure why that is, but I do really like how it turned out regardless! :-)
I pulled out my Lemonade Pretty Bird set (by Basic Grey). I couldn't really decide on a color combination...so I just wen with "eclectic"! LOL!! I stitched the stems, added some buttons to the flower centers, a tag (using Nestabilities Label Four die) with some Burlap String wrapped underneath it, and some ribbon. I used a couple different patterns from my Cherry Hill patterned paper pad (from October Afternoon) and offset them a bit. The sentiment on the tag is from the General Sayings set (from Whiff of Joy). What the photo doesn't' show is the embossed horizontal lines on the kraft cardstock (I think you can see the bottom one and maybe part of the top one...but they are spaced 1/4" apart and continue over the whole card base). I love the subtle texture it gives!
Well, I need to go figure out what we are having for dinner! :-) I hope you all have a wonderful evening! ~Laurie
