Sending You...

I've mentioned before, that each week the FSJ team I am on, has a challenge in our Facebook group.  We alternate between a sketch or a color challenge.  My favorites always seem to be the color challenges, as I sometimes struggle with making a sketch my own.  However, last week, as I scrolled past the sketch a few times, an idea took hold that led to today's card.  

This soft and sweet handmade (DIY) card is perfect for any occasion.  Created using Fun Stampers Journey Hope Anchors, and Summer Rose Stamp Sets, as well as the Summer Branch Die | muchlovesara.com

In the original sketch, there were two angle cut banners in the top corner, and the rectangle shape was a layered element.  Once I decided on using the Summer Branch die as my "banners", The rest of the card started to fall into place quite quickly.  Using a pierced rectangle for the rectangle element, and a staple to attach the branches adds a bit of quirky charm to this card.

I stamped the Bubble Gum rose base, then layered with Sweet Berry for the detail stamps.  The resulting image was just a little bright for me in the card I envisioned, so I used the base stamp once more, inked with Whip Cream Ink.   This toned down the whole image.  I stamped my sentiments with two different colors of ink.  A snippet of leaves left over from the trimmed branch die cut, some simple Sweet Blooms, and a couple of scattered pearls finished off the card.
