Beate's Weekend Sketch

Here is my second entry ever for Beate's Weekend Sketch. I have had this Stampin' Up! set, Fabulous Flowers for several months but have only used it on a couple projects. I just love what I see people doing with it, but I will admit I am not a very good distressed/shabby stamper. I admire it so much but it takes a lot for me to come up with my own project and have it come out like the stuff I admire! Beate's sketch can be found on her blog here: http://beate.blogs.splitcoaststampers.com/. My project is 5 1/2" x 5 1/2". I wish I could get closer to the actual project on some of these so you could really see it up close. I stamped the linen background (is anyone else AMAZED they retired this?!?!) with Soft Sky on the Vanilla panel (I stamped it off once) and then stamped the flowers on top of it. It is always amazing to me to see how much Linen really looks like fabric, especially if you stamp something on top of it!
Supplies Used: Soft Sky cs, ink, Mellow Moss cs, ink, Gingham Ribbon, Rose Red cs, ink, Very Vanilla cs, Pewter Hodgepodge Hardware, Ticket Corner Punch, Sanded background stamp, Linen background stamp, Fabulous Flowers, One of a Kind (sentiment).

Oh my goodness this is the most amazing, fantabulous card I have ever seen!!! You are a stamping goddess. Why can't some of your talent rub off on me?
That is what I want you to make for the SCS event in March. Now go make 52 of them! Hee Hee. I know that won't happen. But I love you anyway.

Love it! One of my FAVE sets to use! I also love to use the big flower as a background image, stamped very pale.
Great design you did!
