Hi There!

Today's card combines two stamp sets that I have had my eye on for quite a while...Petal Prints and the Cheesecloth background stamp. Both of these sets are really fun to work with and I know I'll be using them lots...sorry Mom, you may never end up seeing your Petal Prints set!

I used the poppin' pastels technique on the main image. Then I stamped over it with the Cheesecloth inked in Sage Shadow. The background also uses Sage ink stamped on Sage card stock. Then I lightly sponged the edges with Perfect Plum to give a more softened, distressed look.

The patterned paper is Enchante double-sided designer paper that matches the Carte Postale stamp set which is in the winter mini catalog. The enchante paper is just gorgeous! I made some faux hardware using the oval punches and stamped "Hi There" from Fancy Flexible Phrases inside. I attached that with pewter brads from my Hodge Podge Hardware kit, and I was done. Hope you like it!
