Nothing but happiness

Hello my friends, hope you all are enjoying your long weekend. Usually I don't stamp on the weekends, but today I decided to have at least a couple of hours of therapy, LOL, so I made a card using the new set "Botanicals" from Gina K. I used the sketch from 2S4U and also added the Distress/Sponging Challenge from Stampin' Sisters in Christ.

Details about my card: I started with a piece of Ivory CS. I matted, distressed and stitched a piece of Chocolate Brown and Innocent Pink CS. The BG image was stamped in Antique Linen and the flowers in  Walnut Stain Distress Ink, then I sponged the borders with Tea Dye Distress Ink. After that I applied a couple of coats of UTEE for the shiny look. The sentiment was stamped as well in a piece of Ivory CS in Espresso Adirondack Ink. I adhered some Pink Satin Ribbon.




Card Recipe:
Card Stock: Ivory, Chocolate Brown, Innocent Pink (all Gina K. PL CS)
Stamp: Botanicals (Gina K.)
Ink: Antique Linen, Tea Dye, Walnut Stain Distress (Ranger), Espresso Adirondack (Ranger).
Embellishments: Pink Satin Ribbon (Offray).
Accessories: Sewing machine, White thread, Daubers, UTTE, Embossing gun (Marvy Uchida), Foam Tape, Scor-tape.

Hope you like it.
Have a great night.
