sweet peas. . . .

grew profusely along the winding country road where I lived as a little girl.  I loved picking a bunch to give to my mom on a warm summer day.  :-)

Here is a card I made for the Timeless Tuesday challenge, which is to "frame-it":




I stamped the image repeatedly on a piece of Basic Grey patterned paper with pumice stone Distress Ink to make the background.  The focal image was colored with Memento markers and a bit of Stickles gold glitter was added.  The frame is Spellbinders Labels Ten.  I also used some washi tape and a Martha Stewart punched butterfly.

Thanks for visiting!


EDITED:  At Dawn's suggestion, I am entering this card into the Die Cut Divas challenge to use washi tape and dies.  Thanks, Dawn!!

Oh wow, Joy--gorgeous creation! Love that you made your own background paper & I never think to use gold Stickles on pastel images--have to remember that! I love sweat peas, too, as I had a dear friend who grew them where I moved for my first job out of college.
