Bright summery flowers


Stamp Simply has the above sketch this week and I started out trying to follow it, and then went for a slightly different layout and tried to figure out how I could get back to the sketch. So I tried paper ribbon tabs. I used Dawn's W Plus 9 Woodgrain Silhouette flowers and it made me think of her lovely post all about ribbon last month, click here. I think ribbon might have looked better, but I didn't have any in the red/yellow/orange theme I was working on for Mark's Finest Papers Speedy Cat challenge. Jenny at Wee Memories is giving away a Lawn Fawn gift certificate (drool) for summer themed cards and while mine isn't hit you over your head summer, these colors do make think of warmth and sunshine, which is a nice alternative to my current cold and grey winter weather.

Materials: W Plus 9 Woodgrain Silhouette flower stamp, Versacolor Marigold ink, orange and yellow card stock from Spotlight, Stampin Up Red card stock, paper ribbon tabs

Great minds think alike, I also made a paper tab on my creation today because I didn't have ribbon to match. Love the bright sunny cheery nature of this card.
