Yesterdays cards

There is a whole pile of sketches to play with in the splitcoastStampers site: this is my take on last weeks sketch which can be found here. The new one goes in today. (on Wednesday's) Today is the day the Design Teams challenges start there for Members of the Fan Club...
This card has the tags are from the Punch Box set (with the large su tag punch) they are stamped on cream cardstock from staples with Nick Bantock Damsom Plum Ink. the printed paper scraps are from Anna Griffin and the flower ribbon is from May Arts. (I have purchased this by the roll of several different kinds from Impress
That Cardstock color is Perfect Plum.
This one came about as i spent the morning yesterday transplanting most of my pansies (with crinkly edged petals) to my shade bed and out of the clay pots. I'm hoping they will re-seed. anyways most of whats in the shade bed is Ferns... the Background stamp is from Peddlers Pack and is stamped with Versafine Olympian Green on Mellow Moss card stock then the Fern collage stamp is from Just for Fun and its on River Rock card stock and the Hugs is from Stampendous.
I used that spiral punch across the top of the mellow moss piece. ( I'm wondering if i use that one too much, but I just really love the way it looks) the dark green is Handsome Hunter and this card is A-2 in size. The hemp cord can be found in the bead isle at wal-mart. TFL & have a good day!

I really like how you used the tags punch and stamps. I have those and just do not do them justice- they are really a great product. There just not enough stamping hours in the day!

The stitching, the flowers and the punches. WOWZA! This is a spectacular card. Love the fern too. You have an amazing eye for layout and design, color and coordinating embellishments. Everything is spectacular!
