Fifth Ave. Floral in Neutrals

Hello and Happpy Labor Day Weekend! I'm a little sad to see the unofficial end of summer come because this has been a GREAT summer, but I am ready for some fall weather. Mother Nature doesn't seem to understand that fall is coming. We have had 90-100 degree temperatures here for over a week!

This card is CASE'd from Ronda Wade. I love her cards- they are very simple in design and layout, but very nicely done and so pretty! This card is done in all neutrals and I think it is an elegant color combination. I stamped the flowers in Early Espresso and Crumb Cake on Very Vanilla CS and then sponged on some of the images using Crumb Cake ink and a sponge dauber. I then ran my stamped image panel through my Big Shot in the Square Lattice folder. I love the effect this gives. It softenes up the images really beautifully. I cut out the corners with my 1/2" circle punch (because I don't have a ticket corner punch, but that would have been easier) and mounted it onto Early Espress CS. I tied the ribbon on and added the sentiment from the retired set "Well Scripted" and punched it out with the scalloped oval punch and then used the wide oval punch and Early Espresso for the layer. The card base is Crumb Cake CS.

Hope you like this one and that you have a fun, relaxing weekend! Enjoy!
