Bugs and Blooms

     I love this Bugs and Blooms set which comes from Deedee's Digis and I decided that the snail  needed to put on her finest pink for this card.  The sentiment is also from that set.  I'm using up scraps today so both the image and the sentiment were printed onto scrap CS.

I based my design on the sketch from Sunday Stamps, turned vertical,
and took colors from Inspired by Stamping.

  June-IBSIC95---Color, Inspired by Stamping

     The image is colored with ProMarkers, then fussy cut and matted with a rectangle die cut CS piece (another scrap), layered on in such a way as to create an out-of-the-box technique, one of my favorites.

     Both ribbons are from Really Reasonable Ribbon and I tied the double layer bow using my Craft-Dee Bowz bow maker.  The background dp is from Lawn Fawn and I'm happy to say I won that stack in a challenge.  :-D

     Well, it's the first day of a new week in a new summer and I really hope your summer has started well.  Thanks for visiting and feel free to browse around while you're here.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

  11. A gorgeous card with a fabulous design and lovely colouring - however, it unfortunately is not quite pink enough to be considered in our challenge. Our guidelines show clearly that your entry should contain more pink than any other colour. Thanks for sharing with us at In The Pink - hope to see you again soon!
