Stampin' Up! Flowering Fields for the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop


Welcome to another HITBH! If you came from Sue Prather's site, I'm glad you are continuing the hop. If you haven't then I hope you'll continue to hop using my links below. No matter what, I'm glad you're here. Today we have a sketch challenge and here is what I created for it...

Here is our sketch...
The Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper did all the work for me! I also used scraps of Highland Heather, Soft Succulent and Merry Merlot. I embossed each strip with the Thanks & Hello EF, Tasteful Textile 3D EF and Timeworn Type 3D EF.

I cut a circle out of Basic White cardstock with a die from the Layering Circles Dies and stamped the windmill from the Tulip Fields Stamp Set in Gray Granite ink. The "hello" is from the Sweet As a Peach Stamp Set, stamped in Evening Evergreen ink. I adhered it to the card front with mini Stampin' Dimensionals. I used 5 Pastel Pearls for my embellishments. Measurements are listed below the names of the hoppers. I'm entering my card at Krafty Chicks Challenge #601 Week One - Stamp Act.

The inside is plain except for a strip of the DSP.
