Hi there stampers!  Whew, it has been way too long since I created a card and I’m so sorry for my absence.  I have been sick for three weeks now and had some work travel that kept me from stamping.  I’m back this week with a card for the TGIF Challenge and this week it’s Sale-a-bration inspired.

I used the beautiful Lovely Lattice stamp set for my card.  I started with a piece of Shimmery White cardstock and stamped the image in Versamark ink.  I heat set the image with white embossing powder.  I then used several colors of inks to watercolor the image and the background.  I used Blushing Bride, So Saffron, Grapefruit Grove, Mint Macaron, Pear Pizzaz, Soft Sea Foam, Balmy Blue, Highland Heather, Gray Granite, and Smoky Slate.  

My card for this week's #tgifchallenge #199 featuring cards using #saleabration items. I used the #lovelylattice stamp set and watercolored the image on some #shimmerwhitecardstock and then used the #subtleembossing folder to create the background by inking it up with #smokyslate ink.

I watercolored one additional large flower and fussy cut it out using my Paper Snips.  I then used the Rectangle Stitched Framelits to cut out the image and adhered this to a piece of Soft Sea Foam cardstock.  I used the Subtle Embossing Folder that I had inked up with Smoky Slate to emboss a panel of Thick Whisper White.  I then adhered all the layers together.  I cut out the sentiment “friend” using the Well Written Framelits and added the card.  I used my Wink of Stella to add shimmer to the popped up flower and friend sentiment.
