Hi everyone! It's Tuesday and it's time for another one of Mercy's Sketches! I know I say this week after week, but I love this week's sketch! I combined this sketch with Lisa Johnson's Poppy Seed Challenge #2 to use a button, polka dots and Light Moss on a card.
I recently received a new Papertrey order and couldn't wait to use some of my new goodies! I used the new set, Flower of the Month: Violets. This card was totally inspired by this beauty by Debbie Olson! (scroll down to the third card) I stamped the smaller violet two times in Memento Tuxedo Black on some PTI Pretty Pastels DP and cut it out. A portion of the second flower was popped up on foam tape. The leaves were stamped in Memento Black on another pattern from Pretty Pastels and cut out. The Kraft panel was cut out with the Labels Eight Nestabilities and was embossed with Tin Types Impression Plate from PTI. Buttons are Spring Moss and the scallops were cut with the Medium Scallop Die from Papertrey. I finished it off with some Lavender Moon Satin Ribbon and some machine stitching and called it a card!
