Saffron Muse

Today's card covers several challenges out this week:  the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches; the color challenge at Just Add Ink; the SUO Challenge to use SAB 2013 products and the Friday Mashup challenge to use markers and/or texture.  And I've only now realised the sketch at FMS is a square card - oops, sorry ladies!

The colors this week at JAI are really pretty together - Midnight Muse; So Saffron and Whisper White.  I chose to use Whisper White as my base, with So Saffron as my second color then touches of Midnight muse.

I inked up the stamp using markers and stamped onto Whisper White cardstock.  I then cut it out using my Circle Scissor.  It is adhered to the large doily using dimensionals.  The smaller doily is from the Delicate Doilies Sizzlet with a punched piece from the now-retired Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch.  A 3/4" circle punch in Midnight Muse and a jumbo pearl finishes off this embellishment.

Thanks for looking.
