TSG - Just Because

Hi there!! I had some stampy time today, so I made a card for this week's There She Goes Challenge - TSG141. I used Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #151 for the layout.

I don't normally buy flower stamp sets because I don't think I can color them very well. My Copic skills are severely lacking. I decided that if I don't practice, then I'll never learn, so I got this Bloom set by TSG. It's a beautiful set perfect for many different occasions. Coloring this image was definitely out of my comfort zone, but I love how my card turned out!

I did some sponging around the edges of my image and accented a few of the flowers with pearls. I stamped the sentiment and cut it out with Circle Nestabilities and did some more sponging around it. I popped it up with foam tape on top of the ribbon.

The papers are from the My Mind's Eye Madison Avenue collection. I love this beautiful pink and brown color combo! I finished my card off with a few more pearls in the bottom corner.

That's it for me tonight! Thanks sooo much for stopping by!! :)
