FTL #87

Hi everybody,
Hope you are having a good weekend! Its a long weekend for us in Australia as Monday is ANZAC day. So many holidays in April for children. Nearly an entire month! We are having fun at home. Baked some cup cakes, bought heaps of secondhand books from the library book sale and generally relaxing. I managed to make few cards and one of them is for Clean and Simple Blog sketch FTL#87. 
Here is the sketch for you.

And here is my take on the sketch.


I have layered kraft cardstock on kraft cardstock but inked the edges with SU's Whisper White craft ink.The layered flower is made of tissue paper which is stamped with PTI's background basics Hearts stamp using Tim Holtz's Fired Brick distress ink. Punched 6 scalloped circle, layered it and centered with a red button and SU's red rhinestone brad. Other than that there is no stamping on the card. The rest are all rubons from SU.

I like the red and white on kraft.Thanks for another awesome sketch.Your sketches always inspire me to do something different.Tomorrow, I am participating in the PTI's blog hop. So please drop by when time permits.
Continue to have a great week end!
Hugs

Great card! I love the colors, and the flower is fabulous. Stamping it with hearts is a great touch. And rub ons - I always forget that I have them.
