Graceful



I'm using a sketch today from the Mojo Monday sketch challenge #302 and entering my card there.

 
I've also made my card for the Inspired by Stamping IBSIC #60 challenge. The colors are really pretty and one of my favorites. I'll also enter my card into the Inspired by Stamping Customer Gallery Contest for July. - http://joannamunster.com/customer-gallery/  
 
I hope my colors are close enough. I used two different colors of pink Copics. The stamps I'm using are Inspired by Stamping Vintage Background and Graceful Hydrangea. I stamped the background with Memento Tuxedo Black on white cardstock instead of using patterned paper. For the image, I colored the leaves with a bit of gray so as not to use any green. I think that is close enough for black.
 
The ribbon is pink grosgrain and I added some pink rhinestones. The rest is PTI white cardstock and black from Hobby Lobby.
