You Make Me Smile!

Welcome to the third day of sneak peeks!!  Today the JustRite girls are showcasing Seeds of Kindness!  This set is made up of 6 centres and borders in the 1 5/8th size.  Today however, I have only used the centre and paired it with the flowers from Plant a Little Love.  Both sets are available for pre-order from Monday 18th January and shipping on the 20th!  I was inspired by Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge (they are always fantastic to kick that mojo into gear!!) MTSC56!   I know the ribbon isn't in the right place, but it just wouldn't fit the other way!!!  :)

I started with a base of Riding Hood Red and layered with white (pierced), gold and some Bella Rose DSP.  The vertical panel is more white that's been punched with the Martha Stewart Arch Lattice border punch and layered with more Bella Rose.  Next I added a piece of Old Olive that's been embossed with Swiss Dots EF and across both panels attached a piece of 1/2" white satin ribbon.  The feature panel has been stamped using the flowers from the soon to be released Plant A Little Love in Memento Tuxedo Black (twice) and the sentiment from Seeds of Kindness in Old Olive next to one set of flowers.  I colours both sets of flowers with markers and a blender pen and then cut one with Label 4 Nestabilities and the flowers from the second set were popped up on top of the first.  To finish I added a line of gold around the edge of the Label 4 and popped the panel up on foam tape and added a bow to the top of the ribbon.

For more inspiration see the creations of Barb, Angela and the JustRite Blog!!

beautiful card Kathy. I love how you combined the 2 different stamps to make it look like just one stamp. I hadn't thought about doing that.
You color combinations are very nice together too.
