More Elements of Style

Happy Memorial Day! I hope that everyone has the chance to spend time remembering those they love. Today I have another card to show you using the stamp set Elements of Style. This is a card I made for a swap with my downline, and we also made this as part of our Stampers Clubs this month.

And, a last minute reminder, today is the last day for the May Promotion. When you purchase select sets (including this one) you earn a free package of Designer Brads!

For this card, I started by stamping my main image with Close to Cocoa craft ink. While that dried, I randomly stamped that same image on the card base. I also used my Color Spritzer with a Chocolate Chip marker to add texture to the base. The Blush Blossom layer is spritzed with the new Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz from the Summer Mini Catalog--giving it a very nice shimmer. Note: Both Close to Cocoa and Blush Blossom are being discontinued.

I colored the main image using my Aqua Painter and Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, and Blush Blossom. I added Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds to the center of the flowers. To add the ribbon I used my Hobby Blade and cut a slit to pull the ribbon through. The cute ribbon slide is from the Hodgepodge Hardware collection.
