And here's my interpretation:
The main layer is Vanilla Cream cardstock, but I customized it to look like it does by using the direct-to-paper method with Vanilla and White Daisy inks, and then stamping the sentiment multiple times using Goldrush. The flowers are done by stamping them first with White Daisy pigment ink and then a second time in Goldrush and yet again with Sunflower. I haven't done a lot with completely changing the look of a neutral cardstock, so this was really new and fun for me.
The lower portion of the card is done by stitching down the 'spindles' on top of some sanded Goldrush cardstock, and then attaching the scalloped-edge punched border with dimensionals.
The focal image was stamped on Colonial White cardstock, then adhered on top of different cardstock mats (the Goldrush mat was sanded). I also did some stitching.
This card is also airborne at the moment, on its way to thank a very sweet someone for recently GIVING me darling some HANDbag patterns (think Vera Bradley) that she'd designed at one time. I couldn't think of a more appropriate set to use to thank her.
With VBS last week and trying to get everything ready for our three-week summer trip, I haven't been online very much in the last two weeks and probably won't be online much (or stamping at all!) in the next three weeks either. ;( However, I'm having a different kind of fun, so that's okay. And I will have some cards to share with you while I'm away. ;)
