Charming Hum...................

I can not believe it is snowing again. We/I have had enough already. I just get everything cleared up and it comes again.

I created my card today from the Stamping 411 sketch.


I added a background to my card with a retired background stamp stamped in Versa Mark. (Riot of Petals)



I took a look at the color coach and River Rock was a color that they had matched up with Rose Red and then I added the black for a sharp contrast. I tore away the stitched edge on the stamped image part and then matted it with a black piece.

eta: I just felt it need something more so I added the butterflies.

Thanks for Stopping By.

Here's what I used:


Stamps: Riot of Petals (retired), Charming


Paper:  Rose Red, River Rock, Black, Whisper White


Ink: River Rock, Versa Mark, Black


Accessories: Dotted Scallop Edge Punch from Stampin Up, MS Punch

Oh Peg, I'm so sorry you're getting more snow. It's beautiful here today but I hear we might get it again on Monday! Just know that spring is coming! Great job with your card and this week's sketch. I love that you only used half the top note and the way you placed the ribbon is really quite striking. The butterflies were the perfect finishing touch! Thanks so much for playing along this week at Stamping 411! Blessings, Gretchen

I love how River Rock acts like a chameleon. It looks a bit different when paired with different colors. This card is stunning!

P.S. We're forecasted to get 10-15 inches of snow over teh next 36 hours.....ugh!
