Embrace Life

I totally love this set, but it sat uninked until the early morning hours yesterday.

I used a sketch from SCS for this card. I started with PTI's Spring Moss cardstock for the base. I stamped the branches with Spring Moss ink on the card base.

I then cut squares of Groovy Guava and stamped them with the flower bundle from SU! Embrace Life with Groovy Guava ink. They were then matted with Sahara Sand.

I stamped the flower with Jet Black StazOn on Very Vanilla. I used a water brush to color it and then cut it out. The scallop and circle were die cut and embossed using nestabilities. I then adhered the flower with a foam square.

Lastly, I added the sentiment to the bottom right with Adirondack Pitch Black ink.

I am not sure that the colors work, but they will have to do.

Duke made a great dinner last night; roast pork, asparagus, fried potatoes, and garlic rolls. YUM. I am fortunate he is a great cook. I totally love it when dinner is waiting for me when I get home.
I think someone is coming to paint in the coming days. We are redoing the paint color for the living room and then giving the kitchen a fresh coat. We may go ahead and paint the master bedroom and bath while we're at it. I am just thankful that I don't have to do it; I HATE to paint.
