Wildflower Postcard


I made a quick card for the Free For All Challenge over on Splitcoaststampers yesterday.  The challenge was to make a card that fit the theme of True Blue Flowers (so, mostly blue with flowers).  Well, I stretched it a bit.....but my flowers are blue!

I stamped the silhouette image from the Wildflowers set once, then inked it up again, stamped it on scratch paper, and then stamped it slightly to the right of the image on my card stock.  I inked up the Friendship Script image, stamped it off on scratch paper, and stamped it on my card stock so it would appear in a lighter gray.  I inked up a few images from Vintage Postcard and stamped them so they'd appear darker. The postmark image was inked up in blue, stamped off, and then stamped onto the card.  I die cut the circle using a die from the Pennants & More set and stamped the images I wanted on there.

The card came together pretty quickly, and I couldn't be happier with it!  It's always nice when my husband, unprompted, says he likes a card :)
