Stampin' Up! Beautiful Promenade for the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome to our weekly blog hop. I  used the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Promenade stamp set to create my card for the Hop.  We’ve got a sketch challenge this week and here is what I created for it.

and here is our sketch.

No photo description available.
Before I tell you about my card, I'd like to enter it in the Watercooler Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge WWC206.

My card base is Mossy Meadow. I cut a square of the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper and adhered it to a Very Vanilla mat that I embossed with the Petal Burst TIEF.

The circle is a die cut from Eastern Medallions and I used Berry Burst Card Stock. I adhered it to the card front with mini dimensionals. I used two of the wooden leaves from the Butterfly Elements (free with a purchase of $50 during Sale-A-Bration). I stamped the sentiment from Beautiful Promenade in Mossy Meadow on a scrap of Very Vanilla and sponged the edges, adhering it with more Dimensionals.

For the inside, I cut a mat of Berry Burst and rounded the edges with the Detailed Trio Punch. The Very Vanilla mat was also edged and punched with that punch. I stamped another sentiment from the stamp set in Mossy Meadow.
