Front Seat Passenger




I was driving to my destination the other day, stopped at a red light, when I happened to look at the car next to me. Driving was a handsome gentleman and his front seat passenger was a huge, beautiful bouquet of roses. Not red roses, but a mix of pink, lavendar and yellow roses. It was huge, seriously! The light turned to green and we both drove on, but I kept thinking how he was gonna make some woman very happy.



I made a one-layer card using the goodies from the July Artful Delight Card Kit. 

The kit came with a really fun Lawn Fawn Stamp Set, so I started with a white cardstock base (also from the kit) and stamped the large flower image in one corner with the ink pad from the kit and moved out, filling in areas with the smaller stamps. Once I was finished, I stamped a sentiment (from another Lawn Fawn set, not included in the kit) in a contrasting color and then came back and touched up some of the leaves with colored chalk. Finally, I spritzed the entire card with a shimmer, but unfortunately that doesn't show in the photo.






Did you know that Artful Delight also offers a monthly sketch challenge too? It is where you create a project using either the card or scrapbook sketch for a chance to win a kit!

  6. I love the ink color on the white, and especially with the chalk detail! Beautiful positioning of your stamps. Okay, where were you stopped at a red light? Just kidding. When we first moved to WI Rapids (actually Biron) in 1980, there were only 3 traffic lights.

  8. That's one of my favorite LF sets! I love how you clustered them & left them white, such a different look, like more sophisticated than the usual whimsical feel of LF
