Sow Seeds of Love!

Today I combined two challenges to create my card that I have posted here! First up it is for the color challenge to celebrate Kristi's birthday ... the owner of Hanna Stamps! As it is her birthday we are having a party for her over in the Hanna Stamps Members forum of SCS tonight from 8pm - 11pm EST .... we will be having challenges and giveaways of not yet released stamps ... so why not head on over if you can!!!!!!! The colors we had to use for the color challenge today were Kristi's favorite colors: Charcoal Grey; Shades of Teal & Pink ... hopefully I have achieved that in this card. Don't forget that these new Riley stamps will be released by Hanna Stamps on Friday 1st February!

The second challenge here is Beate's weekend sketch challenge ..... I did have to flip the sketch this week so that I could use the Riley Moose image I wanted to on my card ... I prefer my images looking the towards the verse rather then away from as it would have been otherwise!

I think this card is pretty much self explanatory ... except for how I did my scallop layer for my verse ... that is actually 3 scallop squares joined together to make the size I need.

Stamps: Garden Riley & Words Hanna Would Say - Hanna Stamps; Scratched Grid - CHF
Paper: White; Grey; Pretty In Pink; Not Quite Navy
Other: Black Ink; Blue Bayou SU Ink; Square Nestabilities; Paper Piercing Mat & Tool; Pink & Blue Brads; Prima Flower; Photo Corner Punch; Blue Ribbon; Foam Tape

This is so cute, Frances, and such a great design. I like how you used the scallop square to make a rectangle! Really neat example! Riley is coming to my house next week!!

Hugs and grins.

I love Riley. I think I'm going to have to find the time to do some of the challenges.
I'm going to try to get to Splitcoast tonight. Today is my birthday, too!

Thanks for sharing your beautiful art with us.
