With Love

I finally have another card to post on my much neglected blog!  I hadn't made a card for about 6 weeks, so it was a bit of a challenge to dust off the stamping cobwebs and create something.  I started with a great sketch by Dawny from Papertake Weekly.

I then set out to combine a few of my favorite challenges, since for Basic Grey Challenge 59, ODBDSLC90 and SNTODBD50, the current challenge is Anything Goes.  My Basic Grey papers are all from an older collection called "Lily Kate."  (Well, I think they are all from that collection - the binding on my little 6 x 6 pad has fallen apart since I've nearly used the entire pack, but these sheets were tucked in there, so I think that is the correct collection!)  Since I was playing along at Our Daily Bread Designs, it was the perfect chance to ink up this new clover image from "Simple Things."

This card is going to be going to my Dad as a thank you for Christmas.  He is a farmer, so the clover image is perfect for him.  I tried not to go too girly on it and just added touches of pink (coordinates with the tiny pink flowers in the dp) and just a tiny bit of ribbon.  :)  He knows I like ribbon!

Stamps:  Our Daily Bread Designs "Simple Things" clover image and "Poinsettia Tag" (I inked just the With Love off of the With Love From sentiment on the tag set)
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black (image), Vintage Photo Distress Ink (sponging), SU! Cameo Coral marker for sentiment
Other:  Copic markers, Bow Easy, satin ribbon from stash, MFT scallop border dienamics die, sponge

Thanks for stopping by!
