Scented Message


It doesn't happen often, but I love it when a card comes together just as I imagined it, right down to the embellishments. After I bought Scented Message, a new stamp from Penny Black, I knew that I wanted to pair it with Tim Holtz' vintage cabinet die. 

I've seen Hero Arts' Shari Carroll use it several times and I just loved the unique shape for a card. Move over, Reverse Wonky Rectangle.  
                              

After coloring the image with Copics, I cut out some of the flowers and mounted them on dimensional adhesive. I love how they pop off the card. And I had the perfect shade of ribbon scrap that was dyed with distress inks.

I'm planning to enter this card in Lily Pad's latest challenge with flowers. Go here to see all the details.

I hope you all have a great week. Thanks for visiting today!
