3/16 Kind Words Echo

Jen Balcer hosted the Weekend Sketch Challenge and what a lovely sketch it was. I LOVE the Top Note in the background and as soon as I saw this sketch, I knew I would do it . . . just a matter of time. I finally found the time late yesterday afternoon and this is what I came up with.

I'm especially pleased with the perfect match the flower is to the Kraft cardstock. I squirted two kinds of re-inker onto a sheet of plastic hoping that the combination would resemble Kraft. I used a good squirt of Sahara Sand and about a third of a good squirt of Creamy Caramel. Mixed the two colors together with a very wet Aqua Painter and then pressed and dunked my Pretties Kit flower into it. Isn't it a WOW? I thought so, too!

I used my Big Shot and the die called Swirly to make some vine-like tendrils on my card. The smaller flowers are all punched from the Boho Blossoms Punch. The sentiment is from a Level Two Hostess Set called Echoes of Kindness.

Supplies I used to create this card:

Stamps: Echoes of Kindness
Paper: Kraft, Mellow Moss, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Pretties Kit, Boho Blossoms Punch, Vintage Brads, Swirly Die, Top Note Die, Big Shot Machine, Kraft Taffeta Ribbon, Mini Glue Dot, Pop Up Glue Dots
