May all your weeds be flowers

I know, I know. I just posted an easel card a couple of days ago. But I had a request for a friend who needs cheering up, and they wanted an easel card. So, here it is. This is actually for our CCEE Inspiration challenge this week. Here's the photo we were supposed to use for our inspiration. I went with the colors, and I thought the stack of cookies looked like scallops. I used Mercy's sketch found HERE.

I stamped the flowers from the JustRite set Plant a Little Love, with Versamark, embossed them with Detail Black ep, and colored them with Tombows. The sentiment is from the set Seeds of Kindness. You can purchase JustRite stamps, along with a huge variety papers, inks and embellishments from Stamper's Dream. The name of the store says it all. Not only is this online store full of fabulous images, paper, rhinestones, buttons, and more, but the shipping is like none other. Michelle always ships the packages the next day. And if you place it before noon Central Time, she'll have it shipped that day. No joke!!

I love the Cream Velvet Scalloped ribbon by Maya Road. I also added some borders with Fiskars and Martha Stewart border punches. The main image is framed with one of Spellbinders newest Nestabilities Big Scallop Circles. And I added some Frosted Lace Stickles to the flower centers. Lastly, I added some mini pearls by Zva Creative, and some PTI buttons, along with a May Arts Satin ribbon bow. Oh, and finally, the yummy paper is Gossamer by Memory Box.

Here's a look at the inside:


Now, we'd love to have you join in on our CCEE Inspiration Challenge. Just head on over to the CCEE Stampers Blog for all the details. It's always fun to see how other crafters are inspired.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you're having a fantastic week.
My next post won't be until March 30 because I'm working on a few projects for that week, that I can't wait to share with ya'll!!

Happy Stamping!!
Tosh
