Picked With Love

Hello friends!  I'm sharing a recent card made using the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  I recently purchased the latest card kit from Simon Says Stamp with some delicious floral garden images and decided it would work great for this challenge.  I'm also joining the Anything Goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

The stamps used for this card includes a bunch of tulips in a mason jar and a cute picket fence, both colored it with Copic Markers then fussy cut as the dies won't be available until next month.

For the background I used a background stamp also included in the kit, the Modern Rose Blooms stamp.  I inked it up with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink, stamped it off once, then dabbed it lightly with a paper towel before stamping to get a very light impression on the white card stock, which was then die cut with a stitched scallop rectangle die.. 

After the card was assembled I added a Jute twine bow and a couple of wood hearts, then used an aqua shimmer pen to add some sparkle on the flowers.

Thanks so much for visiting, I appreciate it so much!  I've added a link to the challenges above so be sure to check them out!
