Beate's Sketch #7


I had intended to stay home all day yesterday and get lots of stamping done, but my DH decided he wanted to go down the coast shopping and as my DD was also heading in a similar direction we all decided to go together. We ended being out a lot longer than was originally planned but some of that was my fault, as while we were there someone reminded me of a scrapbooking shop nearby which my DH kindly took me too. I am not a scrapbooker but my DD who was with us is and I don't mind looking in scrapbook stores as they are a good source for background papers, embellishments and tools etc. While I was in the store I found a set of flower stamps - Carolee's Creations by Adorn It which of course I decided to buy.

The card above is what I made when I came home and is for Beate's weekend sketch, originally when I saw the sketch and prior to going shopping I had planned on combining it with the limited supply challenge which is using neglected stamps - but my new flower set had other ideas!

Recipe:
Stamps: Flower - Carolee's Creations Adorn It; Verse - Papertrey Ink
Papers: Au Chocolat; Chocolate Chip; Rose Red - Stampin' Up; White
Other: Black Ink; Dark Brown Fluid Chalk; Paper Piercing Tool & Mat; Trias
