Inspired By Nature, CC207

While I'm still in Florida, hopefully enjoying the warmer weather, I was able to pre-post this before leaving. Hopefully no technical issues will occur. This card was inspired by last weeks SCS color challenge (CC207) and a sketch from Stamps and Smiles blog. Not my usual colors, but I think it turned out ok. I inked up this large stamp by using daubers to isolate the colors I wanted and then 'huffed' on the stamp to remoisten it before setting it on my Whisper White. I used my Scallop Edge Punch to decorate the edges of my Kiwi Kiss layer and then placed that on Pumpkin Pie and Summer Sun. The sentiment from Sincere Salutations was inked in Pumpkin Pie Craft ink and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. Punched it out with the Wide Oval Punch and sponged the edges with Pumpkin Pie and offset it with a Summer Sun Wide Oval. Hope you liked it.
