Hello Friend

Hi!  Today's card was made using the inspiration photo from Inspired By All The Little Things and I'm also playing along with the Make Your Own Background challenge at Simon Says Stamp.  I was also inspired by the sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch - flipping the sketch to a landscape orientation.

I created my own woodgrain background by scoring some white cardstock, then rubbing various distress inks over the panel.  Once it was dry, I die-cut it with a stitched die and adhered it to a white card base.

I glued some fun foam behind some gold foil cardstock and some Sno Cone cardstock then die-cut the sentiments.  The flowers were stamped with Altenew inks and die-cut.  The bottom flower was adhered directly to the woodgrain and the top flower was popped up on foam tape.

Thanks for visiting!
