Pink & Green

Simple card, but feels good to just make one again!  My inspiration came from 3 challenges: ODBD, Dynamic Duos (not posted in time) & Freshly Made Sketches. Since I used snippets, I'm also adding this to the gallery at Pixies Crafty Workshop. Love my Lil' Inkers stitched dies (more on my wishlist!) & in case you don't know, the die used on the card front does only the stitching--no cutting. The stamps are all ODBD as that's the  
theme for the final challenge celebrating their 6th anniversary. "Each Minute" is inked with Versafine Vintage Sepia & heat embossed.  The 2 smallest blossoms from "Sweet William--Small" are die cut with the matching Spellbinders, stamped in VersaMagic Pink Grapefruit & covered with Wink of Stella. Only embellishments are the brown enamel dot & brown grosgrain ribbon tab.  All the elements are mounted with foam tape.
Forgot to tell you, Debbie (Flickr friend) is home from the hospital & currently doing better.  I know she appreciates your prayers & kind thoughts.

    Your card is lovely, the pop of colour lifts it beautifully and it is a wonderful sentiment.
