Bloom Where You're Planted

Hey, everybody! Hope you had a great weekend! We're into the beginning of November (can you believe it?!) and I'm posting my DT inspiration project for Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog LTSCB #17 - Anything Goes! Come play with us! We're being sponsored by the awesome My Crafty Heart!

I dug into my GKD stash and played with the "Falling For You" and "Wild At Heart" stamp sets, used some Pure Luxury ivory, kraft and sweet mango cardstocks, and some gorgeous paper from the "Wishing You Joy" 6x6 paper pack. Oh, and can't forget the fabulous gross grain ribbon from the Grateful Heart StampTV kit! I just love how this inspirational note card turned out - I'm really lovin' these colors! Even with the blooming posies, this card has a definite autumn feel! ;)

All these awesome layers are matted on the sweet mango cardstock which I just love, including the sentiment which is also layered on a lacey circles die cut.

I stamped the flowers again on the inside lower left corner, leaving plenty of room to write a note. The Memento Morocco ink is almost a perfect match to the cardstock!

I'd love to enter this card into the following challenges:

  • GKD Pure Luxury ivory, kraft and sweet mango cardstock 
  • GKD Wishing You Joy 6x6 paper pack
  • GKD Falling For You and Wild At Heart stamp sets
  • Copics: E07, YG17, BV17, YR15
  • Sakura Stardust pen
  • Memento Morocco ink
  • Spellbinders Classic Circles and Lacey Circles dies
  • Orange sherbet flat-back pearls

Hope you've found some inspiration to join the fun and create something for our Anything Goes challenge! Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time! ;)
