TGIF363 Sketch Challenge

Being that it's Friday it's time for a card making challenge over at #TGIF363.  For this week we are using a sketch for our inspiration/challenge.  I really think this is a cool sketch that lends to all kinds of cards and styles.   Since the trees in my neighborhood are finally popping with blossoms I went for a super spring themed look for my spin on the sketch.

I made this card using the additional stamp set that was so generously included in March's Beyond the Horizon Paper Pumpkin Kit.  The large floral image is a two-step style and super easy to align.  I stamped the first step with Fresh Freesia on Basic White.  Then I stamped the more detailed second step with Versamark Ink and heat embossed it with White Embossing Powder.  Last, I stamped the second detailed image again right over the heat embossed image with Polished Pink Ink.

All the leaves were stamped with Coastal Cabana.  Some are stamped full strength and some a lightly stamped off.  I like how this gives a variety of colors/levels/shades.  Both the "hello" and "a little note" are from the Beyond the Horizon PP Kit.  Lately the images in the Paper Pumpkin Kits are super great. 

I mixed different packs of paper for this card.  I used a piece of Fresh Freesia gingham from the Pansy Petals DSP and a piece of Coastal Cabana from the Brights 6" x 6" DSP (retired) pack.  Look close and you'll see a sliver of In Color Shimmer Velum.  It's a small touch, but I like it.  To finish I tied a Linen Thread bow through the tag and splattered Wink of Stella.
