Holy smokes – I can’t stop stamping today! I think I was “dry” for so long, once I got a little bit of Mojo, I couldn’t control myself:) Today’s submission for the Truly Scrumptious sketch challenge #36, with the option of ‘How does your garden grow’? I have to admit, my flower image just “happened” to fit with the optional challenge, since I completely forgot about it when I was making this card. Isn’t that just serendipitous? This card is a little off of my usual style. I tried to incorporate and make the most of the 100th Color Throwdown challenge I sifted through all of my new 6 x 6 patterned paper packs until I found one that I thought was pretty close to the challenge colors (Regal Rose, Certainly Celery, Real Red, Baja Breeze). I pulled out a stamp that I hadn’t used in ages as well as one I hadn’t used before! How’s that?! Here is my card recipe for those who’d like to know:

Card Stock – PTI White (for base, flower image & sentiment), Certainly Celery, Baja Breeze, Real Red
Patterned Paper – Basic Grey June Bug and Green at Heart
Stamps – Stampington & Co “Elegant Stems”, SU “Elements of Style” (sentiment)
Ink – SU markers in Baja Breeze, Real Red, Regal Rose, Certainly Celery; Momento Tuxedo Black
Accessories – PTI & Gina K. buttons, SU punches, dimensionals

I think I’m happy with it. What do you think of it?
