Simply Loonie #2

Three weeks in a row combining two challenges.. woo hoo! The sketch is from Clean and Simple Stamping and color combination from Loonie Stamper's Challenge and this weeks combination is Pure Poppy, Spring Moss, White/Cream and Dark Chocolate.

This is what I came up this week. And I can't believe that I used all Stampin' Up products ... well except for the beads in the middle of the flower and the ink for the flowers. I started with Whisper White card stock measured 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 folded in half. The flowers is from Best Blossom set and was stamped randomly with Spring Moss hybrid ink, I put some crystal effects in the middle of the card and drizzle some red beads. The sentiment is from the same set and was stamped using Chocolate Chip classic ink and finished the card with Chocolate Chip satin ribbon.

Stamp: Best Blossoms from the Heart from Stampin' Up

Paper: Whisper White card stock from Stampin' Up

Ink
: Chocolate Chip classic ink from Stampin Up and Spring Moss from PTI


Accessories: Red Beads, Chocolate Chip satin ribbon and stamping dimensional
