Freshly Made 79

Good morning, Friends! Wow! It's April already! And the weather seems to be finally cooperating! It should be getting nice and warm this week! I do hope that there will be some great spring storms but the outlook for the month does not look good for that. Bummer. Nick's schedule will get really busy now but that will just make the rest of the school year go by that much faster! Pat starts back to work full time and I will need to keep everyone's schedule in order so that we get to where we are supposed to be - lol!! Now to make sure that I am not fooled by a certain 13 year old today...

Today's card was inspired by the sketch challenge at Freshly Made. I haven't pulled this stamp set out in quite a while. I adhered a strip of Wisteria Wonder designer paper with the end flagged to a piece of Naturals Ivory. A strip of Lucky Limeade was punched with the dotted ribbon scallop punch and adhered over that. Then I tied a piece of Wisteria Wonder ruffled ribbon around this and popped the panel up onto a card base of Naturals Ivory. Then I stamped the image from Apothecary Art in black StazOn onto a piece of Naturals Ivory. I used the stamp-a-ma-jig to help me place the sentiment and stamped that in black StazOn. Then I fussy cut the image out. The image is then colored with a blender pen using Lucky Limeade and Wisteria Wonder inks. I layered this onto a piece of Basic Black that was cut using the Labels framelits dies and then popped this up onto the card. I added pearls to the flower centers.
