Simple Pleasures

Last night I dug out all the supplies to finish my ATC swap that's due this weekend. I always say I'm going to finish things early, but it never fails I'm doing it at the last minute. After I finished, I decided I had a little time that I could use the leftover supplies from the ATC's to make a sample for this week's mojo sketch.

All stamps are from the Floral Whimsy set. I stamped the big and small clusters of open flowers around my main panel in Versafine Vintage Sepia and then colored with Copic markers. Next I sponged around the panel with Sepia. I used a post it note to mask part of the stamp to just ink up Life's Simple Pleasures. I added a few piercings and then colored and cut one extra flower to pop up in the corner. This panel is matted on Chocolate Chip and I used the Fiskars Threading Water border punch for the scalloped border. The designer paper is from the Afternoon Tea collection from SU! and also is punched with the border punch. Ribbon is SU! poly twill. I intended to put jumbo eyelets in the corner, but made my holes too close together so modified it by adding some flat back pearls from Stamping Bella. Finished off with Stardust Stickles accents and a Groovy Guava card base.
