Embrace life!

Wow! I can't believe how long it's been since my last post... So much has been going on! Most notably is that Lillianna has come home after being at her dad's for 3 months! I am so glad that she is back home. I've also been helping Emily repaint her room. That has been taking longer then it should have... I have been finding bits of time here and there to craft, I just haven't had time to get to the computer.

I made this card for the Sketch For You To Try over at Jen's blog. This week she is also giving away some goodies! I started out with a Very Vanilla base then I pulled out my Sizzix Big Shot and Top Note die for a Ruby Red and Blush Blossom layer. I used the Embrace Life stamp set and Cameo Coral ink for the blossoms then I used Barely Banana pastels to color in the littl buds. The ribbon is Very Vanilla 5/8 grosgrain and the strip of DSP is really old, so I can't remember the pack it came from. The main flower was created in three levels. I stamped it twice in Timber Brown Stazon and watercolored with Ruby Red. After they dried I cut the flowers out. The first one I left whole and the second one I cut into separate petals and then using stampin' dimensionals I layered them. You can't really see it but I added yellow glitter on the stamens. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in the inside.

I have more to share this week... a heart album and another progressive page layout. Thanks for visiting and happy stamping!!!
