Getting Sketchy at Flourishes

My gosh, I am fortunate this is posting as I lost everything on my blog except one card as I tried to post my labels, all because I put an exclamation mark. Yikes!!! Well, I'm back and breathing a sigh of relief..so let's get on with it.


My card is for Flourishes Get Sketchy ... and WIN! challenge. It is today's noon challenge and the sketch is given to us by Barbara Anders. You should check it out and possibly win their entire July release (4 stamp sets). Oh my, that would be awesome as I love their stamps! And, today is not the last day.

I am using Flourishes Humming Along set for the leaves, sentiment, and hummingbird. I hope it was o.k. to turn the sketch a bit. I was trying to preserve my clock. LOL I'm using some Webster's Pages paper and used both sides. Thinking I wanted some texture, I ran my nice, thick dp through a Cuttlebug textile embossing folder. Of course, there are Spellbinders that I use on just about every card. This is a classic,  large oval and I used a Spellbinders nested pennant to stamp my hummingbird.

Recipe:
Stamps: Flourishes Humming Along
Paper: PTI Dark Chocolate, PTI white cardstock, Webster's Pages dp-Lullaby Lane (dbl sided)
Ink: Memento Bamboo Leaves and Rich Cocoa
Accessories: Brown seam binding, Recollections Adhesive faux pearls, Copics

What a great sketch and WOW to that paper. I gotta get me some of that-but then again I would cover it up wouldn't I....lol This is wonderful and the choice of brown as an accent color makes it striking.
