Hi! This card is for today's Limited Supply Challenge: Oldies, But Goodies.
We were to make a card using:
an old Sketch Challenge: SC128
an old Color Combo Challenge: CC115-Vintage Violet, Old Olive and Certainly Celery
2 embellishments: Rhinestone Brads, HPH
any tools: punches, crimper
Any stamps that hadn't seen in a while
So, I dragged out On the Spot and Paisley! Those babies haven't seen ink in LOOOOONG time. I also chose Doodle This. It used to be my favorite, but it has not seen ink in a while, either!
I stamped the flower on Very Vanilla three times and used re-inker (Vintage Violet) to color in the petals. I achieved the different colors by adding different amounts of water to the re-inker.
I stamped Paisely with Vintage Violet on to VV paper. Next, I stamped the DP with Old Olive. I used the Signo Pen to highlight the petals.
The sentiment came from Tres Chic.
I'm sending this to my sister, who is a teacher, and her son is having a HORRIBLE first week of school, poor thing. My sister is really worried about him. On the inside I printed, "...is who you count on, when even your "friends" won't clean up your vomit!" (I'm pretty hyper right now, and laughed so loud I woke up the dog!) I'm kinda the "weird sister" in this relationship...LOL!

Beautiful! I love how you used the crimper...now that's a tool that has not seen action in my stamp room. Very nice the way the brads attach it...I think I stopped using my crimper because crimped paper was so hard to adhere. Thanks for the idea!
