To Thine Own Self Be Kind!!

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday...again (are you all getting sick of me yet??? LOL!!)

Here is my card for today's Sketch Challenge on SCS, SC217!! For my card, I used one of the Sale-A-Bration sets, Botanical Blooms (I had to mount it first...no time...no time!!).

I stamped the flowers in Basic Black onto Whisper White cardstock. I then watercolored them with Cameo Coral and Kiwi Kiss inks and an Aquapainter.

I stamped the sentiment on Whisper White as well, and I punched it out with my Round Tab Punch, and adhered it under my focal panel. This punch is the perfect shape for this sentiment...LOVE that!!

I embossed both Kiwi Kiss panels with the Harlequin Texturz Background, and I used my Sponge Dauber with Kiwi Kiss ink to highlight the pattern.

I finished this off with some piercing (aren't my piercing holes nice and straight? LOVING my new Paper Piercing Template!!) and two White Brads from the 5/16 Neutrals Brads. Every little bit of this card is SUO (even the dimensionals!!!).

Thanks so much for stopping by...again!! :)
