All Your Heart

Welcome back!  Tonight I have a card to show you that I made for CAS(E) this Sketch and Paper Players, where we are to make a clean and simple floral card.  Done and done!

The card itself was truly quick and easy to make, after I settled on which stamp set to use.  I had to hunt around for instructions for making a Triple Time card, and then just kept it to two layers to align with the sketch.  I tried some solid floral stamps but nothing seemed to work the way I had in mind.  Then I remembered a long retired stamp set with a seriously beautiful floral image and settled on using it.

Using an Aquapainter, the flowers were colored in Pink Pirouette and Pretty in Pink, the leaves with Pear Pizazz.  The sentiment and dragon fly were then stamped in the middle.

I love the elegance of those flowers combined with the rustic Kraft paper.  I looked at ways to add embellishments or ribbon, but decided it would only detract from the overall clean and simple look.  You can see where I decorated a corner on the inside as well.

Thanks so much for your visit today.  I'd love to hear from you if you have a moment to leave a comment!  Be sure to use the links above to check out all the fabulous inspiration and join in - there's still time!

I just submitted a comment under the Google banner but it shows up with my daughter's name, not mine - don't know how that happened but will see if I can get it corrected! My name is Pat Jandacek, and my email address is So Jane Ervin probably has not visited your blog. I'm putting this under Anonymous until I find out how the i.d. was messed up.

Steph, your card is simple perfection. The simple beauty of the flower stamp and your coloring, combined with the dragonfly and the lovely! And I agree, anything else would have taken away from the card. It's wonderful to see you playing along with the Paper Players, thank you!

This is so pretty, Stef! I love, love, love that stamp set and I'm jealous that you have it and I don't, LOL! It's perfect for this layout. Thanks for playing along with us this week at The Paper Players!
