sepia flowers

Hey everyone!  Did you have a wonderful Saturday?  I did all my running around today.  Hopefully I'll get to stay home the rest of the weekend.  I like to stay home.  Besides I have lots to do around here.  Weeding anyone? Or laundry?

We had to hit Lowes and pick up more zucchini and cucumber plants.  The dogs ruined the ones we had.  We put a fence around them last month, so no more dog troubles. 

They ruined most of my broccoli too.  Its not doing so well now.  Can you believe it was 90 degrees today?  Already?!  I have a bunch of cherry tomatoes coming and some green beans too.  My peppers look so happy. 

Alright, enough garden talk!  You came here to see stamping right?  This is the last of the cards we did a few weeks ago. 

Elements of Style (Summer Mini).  Kraft, soft suede and very vanilla cardstock.  Soft suede ink.  Kraft taffeta ribbon, large oval punch, 1 1/4" circle punch, brads, sticky strip and dimensionals.

Isn't it pretty?  I love the sepia tone of the Soft Suede.  I don't really do vintage/shabby, but this stamp set makes it effortless.  You can't mess it up. 


I did the loopy ribbon trick again.  You can see here how to do that.  I kept a flat spot where the lable/tag goes and stuck it on with dimensionals. 

Pretty pretty card. 

Alrighty then.  I need to go get the spa turned on and ready.  My men have been working on the boy's truck all day today.  It was lowered when we got it and today they raised it back to normal.  So they are extra dirty and tired.  

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great holiday weekend.  I have a special Memorial Day card to show you. 

Blessings, b.

I love this card! You inspired me and I created one similar to this yesterday for my demo card swap! When I post it to my blog, I'll send credit your way. Thanks for sharing!

This card is SO beautiful! I just recreated it; my ribbon doesn't look as good as yours does. I added spritz from my color spritzer and a Soft Suede marker and cut the Modern Label punch to make it shorter and put it behind the circle, but really didn't change anything else! I will give you credit when I post it to my blog--you deserve it!!!
