Stampin' Up! Easter Blooms and Just Believe paired to make a For You card


Hi again! It's my second week of being on the Just Add Ink design team, being a guest designer. This week it is a sketch challenge, and this one had me hugely inspired!
 

Ok, so this card is a Basic Grey card base that has been cut down on one side, and layered with Whisper White. I have stamped the Cherry Blossom image from Easter Blooms in Basic Grey, and then I coloured the flowers in with Pink Pirouette and Pretty in Pink and the leaves with Certainly Celery. I have pierced the card base and sewn on a retired Basic Grey Corduroy button with some bakers twine. Then on the other piece, while I was sewing on the button, I left a tail, so that it can be wrapped around the other button. Sorry, that's a really bad description, but I hope the pictures help!
Here is the Just Add Ink sketch... Don't forget to check out what the other designers have created, and I hope this inspires you to create something too!
Happy Stamping!
