Hi all!!  It's been a busy, busy week - sorry my blog has been quiet the last week!  Today, I wanted to pop in real quick and just share a card I made last week.  I didn't make this card for a challenge or anything - just wanted to be crafty and this is what I came up with.  I did actually give this to a friend of mine.

I was in the mood to use my Distress Inks ( who am I kidding, I am always in the mood for DI).  I took an older background Paisley stamp from SU! and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  Then, I took Ripe Persimmon, Peacock Feathers, and Wild Honey, and blended that onto my background.  So fun, and gives such an awesome look.  I stamped out my sentiment "Hello There" from the Hey Day Sentiments set from Studio Calico.  I first stamped it in Butter Bar Midtone ink from Hero Arts - then stamped it again with Gray Flannel Memento Ink.  The gray ink turned a greenish color - which I didn't intend to do - but it turned out fine.  I then added some ribbon from SU! and a dimensional flower sticker from Sassafrass.  I wanted a different element for my sentiment instead of just placing it onto my card panel - so I took out some  Memo Pins from Tim Holtz - and it added that "something" that I was looking for.  I added my card panel to my card base with is a A2 size which is Summer Sunrise from PTI.  

Turned out cute, I think.  Hope your weekend was a good one!!
