Seeds of Friendship

A few weeks ago Silke Ledlow was having a blog giveaway, and  much to my delight and surprise I was the lucky winner. I got to choose a stamp set from Flourishes release. I chose Seeds of  Friendship -- the perfect stamp set to complement my love of flowers and love of vintage. When I saw the first peaks of this set, I thought it was such a clever idea to be able to create vintage seed packets. I was thrilled when my set arrived, but Silke didn't just send the stamp set; she included another precious stamp, some sweet Prima flowers, and some silver and gold bling. THANK YOU, Silke for your generous gift!! Opening the envelope was Christmas in July!
For my first card using Seeds of Friendship, I chose the small image from Sweet Peas, because I didn't want to look for some post-it notes or take the time to mask. I know, lazy Mazy!

The soft colors of sweets peas were great for the vintage look of the card. I kept my coloring of the packet detail to a minimum, coloring only the word "seeds" with Copics V91 and V95. For  the sweet peas I used V000, V91,R81,R83, G21,G24,G28. I cut both sides of strip of green patterned paper with a border punch to create some paper lace. Some brown twine and a button are simple embellishments for this simple design.
 Have a good one!

Stamps: Seeds of Friendship, Sweet Peas (Flourishes)
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa (Tsusinko), Lavender Moon (PTI)
Paper: Vintage Cream Lavender Moon (PTI), green pp (K and Co), lavender pp (My Mind's Eye)
