Pink Field Flowers

So my great plans to stamp my week-long holiday away came to nothing.  I lost my mojo and couldn't get enthused to stamp much of anything.  I'm still missing my mojo but wanted to make a card for the Freshly Made Sketch challenge.

I combined the color challenge at Still AddInktive with the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches to come up with this card:

The base of my card is River Rock (which I loved when it was an In Color but now looks pukey to me LOL), stamped with the Hello Doily background stamp.  My tag is made using the Two Tags die and cutting down one of the tags.  I positioned it where I wanted then stamped the stem image from the Field Flowers set onto both layers.  I then finished the rest of the stamping and added a few extra embellishments to the tag.  Because I don't have any Pink Pirouette ribbon, I had to use Blushing Bride, but it matches closely enough.

Thanks for looking.

Stamps:  Field Flowers; Hello Doily
Cardstock:  River Rock; Very Vanilla; First Edition DSP
Ink:  Soft Suede; River Rock; Pink Pirouette

Oh I hate it when the mojo goes on vacation. Especially when I'm on vacation too! But I still think this looks terrific. Even with the pukey River Rock! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!

Clever how you stamped one flower image on the tag and added a 2nd flowing off of the tag! Thanks for playing stillADDinktive this week!

Karen I hope you don't think the river rock still looks Pukey after making this though! Your card is so beautiful! I love the tag with the extra flower extending off it. Love the buttons and ribbon too. I think you should now fall in love with river rock again and keep using it :) I'm so glad you could play along with us at still addINKtive this week and I'm glad I've made you play with that colour again too :)
