Happy Mail & Yummy Distress Colors

This is the reveal card from Renski ~ Angie :) for the wish rak Spring / Summer exchange. Cool-ioo Loot!! :) those bombshell chicks are gonna make hysterical cards i just know it. so i started out thinking lets make Angie an Thank-You card and i started playing with that wide wide yellow ribbon. ( I dont have anything like it and its a dream to touch) so, i had this card front about half done with the ribbon on it and decided i needed an "image" to go on the topmost panel and then i stamped this Stipple Gardenia on some Neenah Classic Cream and colordusted over it with Newer colors of Distress ink, layered it to an Petite ovals die cut and haha it did not fit onto the card i have started. ( scale was Waaay off...) so the card took an new turn and didnt actually use anything from the loot pile but soon, hopefully today soon. :) Stampin Up Stipple Gardenia in Versafine Vintage Sepia ink with Bundled Sage, Vintage Photo, Forest Moss, Wild Honey, & Stormy Sky Distress ink and an white gel pen. Sentiment's from SU too. ( but, it was pre- write on the wood block the set name set so...) your guess is as good as mine as to which one it came out of. perhaps someday i will get all the wood wrote on but, its more fun to just make cards. This is 6" Square in real life, the Sentiment is stamped on an scrap of PTI vintage cream and color dusted with some forest moss and vintage photo distress. its Die cut with an Spellbinders fancy tags die and up on popdots. the Textured yellow cs is from Bazzill a scrap of it was run twice through an Tim Holtz Sizzix on the edge Bracket border die and sewn to a panel of Basic Grey PP. the second layers from the same pad of it. The Black Linen texture base is Neenah Papers as is the White liner.

What a great RAK!

I love the highlights of the flower with the white. I might give that a try next time I use a flower on a card.

TFS.
