Creative Elements

I didn't get a chance to stamp last weekend, as I spent my usual stamping time taking up the hem on four (yes, four!) pair of work jeans for my husband.  The things we do...LOL

Anyway, I got into my stamp room for a few hours this afternoon and pumped out a couple of cards.  This first one is for the Freshly Made Sketches and Just Add Ink challenges.

And here is my card:

I'm quite happy with how this came out, with lots of lovely white space.  I cut a circle using a nestie then before removing the die, I did some sponging and stamped the flourish image using So Saffron for both. Love this look!

Cardstock:  Whisper White; Daffodil Delight; Brights DSP; Subtles DSP

This is gorgeous, Karren! I love the softness of the sponged and stamped circle, in contrast to the crisp layers of paper. Love that satin ribbon. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Just Add Ink this week!
