MoJoMaria and Sweet Dreamers Blog Challenge #4

Monday was the 100th card sketch for the MoJo Monday blog. In celebration, they posted a fantastic sketch every day this week. I just loved this sketch from Tuesday and finally got a chance to play with it. I decided to incorporate the Sweet Dreamers blog challenge for this week also. It was to make a card with a word only stamp, no coloring images this week! Of course for that sort of a challenge I had to go with a Verve stamp, as I've said many times they have the best sentiments around! And this one is another fabulous one!

The flower centers (brads) are covered in black stickles, looks very elegant in person! This is the first time I broke into the package of Ocean Tides cardstock I bought a while back. I really love this color and think I'll be using it a whole lot more often.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Verve To Risk Plain Jane
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, PTI Ocean Tides
Paper: PTI ssw, Ocean Tides, Basic Black, Blush Blossom
Embellishments: SU top note die, nesties, MS border punch, PTI Ocean Tides Ribbon, prima flowers, black brads, stickles, sponges, SU slot punch and corner rounder punch, Cuttlebug embossing folder
