Hello Bloggers,

As I told you last time, I do not have many supplies with me this summer so I brought some "leftovers" with me to use up.  Here is another card using some leftover pieces:
Toni's birthday
I had some glossy cardstock that was dry embossed with an embossing folder.  I used a brayer to roll ink from the Kaleidacolor rainbow ink pad called Spectrum.  Love this look which I learned from my former design teammate, Shona.  Cut to desired size and layered it on white paper.  After that it was simple!  I added the white ribbon with a thinner apple green ribbon to the middle, plus 3 half pearls.

The flowers??  Those are dollar store sticker finds!!!   (Thanks to my Florida friend, Gloria.) Yep, they are dimensional and really pretty.    And you get quite a few for $1.  What do you think????

Added a couple of the smaller stickers to the inside sentiment (Heartfelt Creations).  The writing uses a Sakura Glaze pen (these give a pretty color and sheen along with a little dimension).  Will probably be using these more this summer since I am without most of my stamps.  LOL.

Hope that this has given you some ideas!

Entering this card into the following challenges:

Cheesy Sandy

So, so, pretty, Sandy! Love your brayered background! But I really thought you had stamped and colored the Hydrangeas from the new Spring Floral set from SNS! Awesome card. You've inspired me to try my hand at making some left-over cards! Thanks for sharing.

We've had our electricity going off and on all afternoon - I already commented, and it didn't work apparently. Love this, the brayered background came out great! ... and I thought you had stamped and colored the hydrangeas from the latest Spring Florals set from SNS!! Great card Sandy. You've inspired me to look in my left-over box!! Thanks!
