I started this card for the last SSS Flickr challenge, but wasn't able to finish it in time. I knew it had to be finished today so it would make it across the world. This is going to a friend whose creations are totally the opposite of CAS & I wanted to use some of her inspiration. I began by stamping Penny Black Music Background in Distress Ink antique linen. Then I used my new SSS stamp set, Warm Wishes, stamping 2 of the floral images with Distress Ink bundled sage--those on the bottom are second generation stamping. I also over-stamped the tall flowers with Delicata Golden Glitz. The panel was dry embossed & cut with the Spellbinder die. I sponged the edges with Distress Ink antique linen & swiped on some Distress Stain tarnished brass & Distress Paint picket fence. I sponged the bundled sage on white cardstock & die cut MFT flowers which are also swiped with tarnished brass. The MFT leaves are sponged with antique linen which is also used to stamp the PB Music Background & I swiped on some tarnished brass. The little tag & sentiment are PTI. I used PTI canvas/linen Impression Plate on the kraft card, added a strip of burlap & attached the panel. I used a lot of my old products along with the new SSS stamp set, so I'm entering the SSS Monday challenge. My burlap strip lets me enter at City Crafter Challenge Blog & some scraps were used so I'm also joining in at Pixies Snippets Playground. Since it's a birthday card, I'll enter Seize the Birthday.
Edited to add: also entering at SSS Wednesday since I used my new SSS stamp set for the first time.
Monday is the College National Football Championship game & we're so excited our University of Oregon Ducks are playing! The other team is Ohio State. My blogging friend, Maria, is an Ohio State fan, so we have a little wager going--just for fun. The one whose team looses has to send something to the other person, including, of course, a handmade card! Hopefully the Ducks won't let me down--LOL! Thanks for your visit & enjoy the weekend.
