Thinking of you...

Today I am showing you a card that I have created for the Dynamic Duos #21 Challenge and the Retrosketches Challenge #30. I have not used Always Artichoke  and Certainly Celery together in a long time and thought it would be a great challenge for me. I LOVED the simplicity of the sketch for Retrosketches and had so many ideas going through my head, but this is what came together:

I used the Elegant Bouquet Impressions Folder and used the brayer to apply Always Artichoke Ink. I used a sponge dauber on the EF to remove some ink to soften the color around the edge of the raised image. I added Dazzling Details to make the center of the flowers sparkle a bit. The Papillon Butterfly was inked in the Celery then Artichoke was added to the edges with a Stampin' Write Marker. The coordinating punch makes cutting easy!
This was a quick fun little card to make!
Thanks for looking!
