Always Two Scoops Card

This is a card I made for a sketch challenge on Serendipity Scrapbooks. I just love that site! Kristen the owner is super sweet! She stocks the store with all the latest and greatest must have items! The shipping is super fast and she includes a little bit of chocolate with EVERY order. The forum is always busy with all kinds of challenges and contests. There is something for every crafter whether you are a stamper, scrapper digi or traditional. Now for the card! The sentiment image is from the set Always from SU. I just love that set! I stamped it in purely pomegranate ink and then used my versamark pen to color over it and emboss with clear EP - I did this several times to make it look like a gel sticker. I had to hand cut it out cause would you believe I don't have a punch that coordinates?! I then layered it on a pretty in pink circle and that on a close to cocoa circle. The scalloped border at the bottom was made using my threading water punch! The patterned paper is from the 6x6 pad Two Scoops by Basic Grey. I love that line but chose the smaller pad ~ perfect for card making since I didn't think I would use it much to scrap for my boys! LOL! I used pink grosgrain ribbon and tucked it behind the pp, and tied two little knots. The flower is punched out of cardstock. The smaller one is an OLD SU button punch! The larger is the SU 5 petal flower punch. I used a pink rhinestone brad in the middle. TFL!
