Blue Blossoms


Happy Monday! Hope everyone's team won this first weekend of NFL football. If not, sorry and hopefully next time (unless you are playing my team, LOL.)

I made this card to enter a challenge over at Sparkle n Sprinkle. Every month they have a new sketch challenge and someone has a chance of winning some of their great products. This month's winner will receive a stamp set of their choosing. September's challenge goes until 9/30. Here's this month's sketch:


Head on over to their challenge for a chance to win!!!

I used the Blossoms 3 stamp set. The background was creating using a Faux Patina technique from their Tips & Techniques page. Plus some glitter and embossing powders. Added some pop dots for added dimension.
