Life Brings Simple Pleasures

TGIF! I've got a new card I've created with the new sets just released from Crafter's Companion. I seriously love all their sets and how they can be used together. As a stamper, that's a huge deal!

Today's card I made features a vase and flower image from SET 71. I Cut out the vase after using my inks with sponges to color it with a soft yellowish brown and cut a slit in the actual vases center. I then took my flowers and cut out around them after coloring them in with my watercolor pencils and stuck them in the vase. Makes it look like they're coming right out of the vase! If you click the photo, you might be able to see I added some Stickles to the purple on the flowers. 

The sentiment is from SET 60 which is just on simple white cardstock in black ink. I rounded the one corner and used a notebook punch I had to give it some interest. I then proceeded to sponge on various colors from different ink pads I had. I think it gives it a warm antiqued looking feel! Perfectly matched the the vase.

I used foam pop up adhesive on the backs of everything to give it dimension and adhered it to a darker purple blue cardstock to really accent the images. Finished it off with a tan colored bow and then glued the whole thing to another cream colored base and then put that whole thing on the card itself. Gives a lot od dimension!

This was another fairly quick card to put together, but so many layers yet it's simple!
