Lily Pad's The Greeting Farm Challenge

Hi all!

So, here's my final card for the day...maybe the week depending on how busy I get! I decided to play along w/the sketch found over on the Lily Pad website. You can find them here. Since I'm a big fan of sketches, I thought this one would be right up my alley.

Here's the sketch:

Here's my take on it:

I started out using my cuttlebug to emboss the front of the card w/the swiss dots folder. Then, I used some dark purple cardstock and, again using my cuttlebug, cut out the center panel. I stamped the image w/white pigment ink. It's from Delta and it's called Solidaga Sprig. I bought it a long time ago when it was on clearance at Michaels. To get several images, I simply repeated the stamping w/out reinking. Not sure I LOVE the look, but it's ok. Then, I took some orange ribbon and adhered it to the front of the card. Using dimensional adhesive, I placed the center panel. Then, using an EK Success punch (I think?), I cut out some photo corners in the purple. Done! :)

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I really like that stamping technique, it produces such a pretty image. Really lovely card, you've done a great job with the sketch. Thanks for joining us at Lily Pad Cards!

  2. Hi Pat, I have that solidago sprig also, it always reminds me of a sprig of lavender. Very pretty elements on your card - thanks so much for playing in the Pond with us!

  3. Great take on the challenge and lovely shadow inking! Thanks for playing with us!
