Hello there! I hope your Saturday is going well! I have been spending it in my stamp room doing some major reorganizing! I decided to take a break and create something! I used Jen's Sketch For You To Try from last Saturday and my color inspiration is from The Play Date Cafe Creativity Challenge #18.

The card is pretty self-explanatory, so I won't bore you with all the details. My patterned papers are from SEI Black Orchid, and I added a lot of stitching! Now it's back to reorganizing for me... Thanks so much for stopping by!

Stamps: Mixed Messages (Papertrey Ink)
Paper: Classic Crest Solar White (Neenah), Black Orchid (SEI)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko)
Accessories: Labels Nine Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Scallop Sentiment border punch (Fiskars), Square punches (EK Success), Flowers (Prima), Pearl (Kaisercraft), Pearl brad, Foam tape, Thread, Sewing machine.
