"Believe In Yourself" Card

Today I have a simple card that was inspired by a couple of challenge blogs. This card measures 5" x 7" and uses the following color palette: Indian Corn Blue, Sweet Leaf, Sorbet, and White Daisy.

The design for this card was inspired by Retrosketches, challenge #124, found HERE. The colors of cardstock and inks for this card were inspired by Color Dare, challenge #102, found HERE

The stamp set used for this card is called "Believe in Yourself," and I find myself using it quite a bit. For this particular card, I focused on the birds that come with the set.

The Sweet Leaf cardstock was run though my Cuttlebug machine using the CTMH Quatrefoil Embossing Folder. LOVE that folder and the embossed image it makes!

All of the colored cardstock was inked around the edges for a bit of dimension. The sentiments were stamped with Sorbet ink and attached to the card with foam tape to pop off of my card! Finally, I added a small white organdy ribbon bow in the center to break up the stamped images.

I'll see you in the craft room,
