Stampin'B Challenge

NancyRuth gave us a list of things to include on your Stampin'B's challenge card this week -- a diecut, a circle, and a flower. Actually I used two dies – my circle is a diecut also. My flower is a dianthus.

I cut two Fleur de Lis shapes , trimming down one of them, leaving just the points. Not a lot of other explanation needed for this card. I wasn't too familiar with the dianthus, so I had to google it. Don't you just love Google? You can find ANYTHING!!! Coloring was done with Copic markers; sponging done with Palette Raw Sienna; and the background piece was embossed using the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder. The cardstock is from Mark’s Finest Papers Premium Paper Craft Pack – Spring Has Sprung.

I don't have any salt & pepper shakers that even look like that flower, but I thought my hobnail milkglass ones coordinated with the Swiss Dots embossing folder I used.

Your card is gorgeous, and you're so right, those salt and pepper shakers were perfect to be displayed with the Swiss Dots emb. folder. Just lovely hobnail milkglass shakers.
