I am blessed....

I answered a sketch challenge over on Paper Wings this week and just love how this turned out! I used the new set called Blossoms & Blessings (one of my favorite new sets).  I used Jardin Moss PH ink for all the stamping and enhanced the leaves with the Stardust Clear Gel pen (and I do have some projects where I don't use it - gasp!).  I used white and green card stocks and edged the white layers with the green ink.

Maria gave us this sketch for our inspiration. She used the same stamp set but used the large flower so I did change which image I wanted.  Are you ready?

I originally wasn't going to layer but one of my images didn't get inked well and so part of the image was missing, very noticable.  So, when you have a boo-boo, embellish!  I added more layers!

Can you see that I outlined the veins with the glitter pen.  It just added so much to the card!

I will be placing an order in a couple weeks so if you live in Green Valley, AZ and want to place an order, PLEASE contact me.  Remember we're celebrating Christmas in July and it does NOT mean you have to buy Christmas stamps!

What a beautiful card - love the sketch and you adapted it very well. The layers add beauty. I am liking this stamp set a lot.
