Hydrangeas in Bloom

Happy Monday! First, a quick announcement . . . my second Product Review was posted over at Paper Pretties last night, please go check it out! It's in the Product Review Forum (remember to login or register in order to see it!). As an added bonus, Christie has put the product I reviewed (along with a couple other goodies) on sale for the month of July - 25% off so don't miss that!! You can also read about it on the Paper Pretties homepage.

On to today's card! It's the second week in the Card of the Week Sketch Challenge! We had some great entries last week and Mary Jo Price-Williams' card was the featured winner! Here's this week's sketch from Lesli over at Page Plans. Lots of possibilities here! I went a little outside my comfort zone today . . . I don't often do vintage-y cards but I've been itching to use some beautiful new Webster's Pages paper I picked up over at Emma's Paperie and it just sort of went from there.

My hydrangeas are just blooming now outside and they inspired me to pull out my Kitchen Sink Stamps 3 Step Hydrangea set. Now my hydrangeas are white (they start out celery and turn to white) but aren't the pink ones pretty? I did a bit of sponging on the edges of most of my cardstock layers and a bit over the top of the hydrangea to achieve the "weathered" look. It took me a few tries to get all the paper layers worked out but I just love the colors in the pretty Websters paper! The sentiment is also KSS but the set is called Other Important People - I love that it coordinates with other KSS sets and expands them nicely! Head over to Card of the Week and give the sketch a try - you could be this week's winner and have your card featured on Friday!

Finally, the new theme for July's What's Cook'n With Your Kitchen Sink Stamps contest was announced (as well as last month's winners!) - be sure to read about it and enter for your chance to win!

Cardstock: Brown (Bazzil), Rose Red (SU!), Spring Moss, Vintage Vanilla (Papertrey Ink), Raspberry Truffle Yummy (Webster's Pages), Stamps: 3 Step Hydrangea, Other Important People (Kitchen Sink Stamps), Inks: Blush Blossom (SU!), Sweet Blush, Berry Sorbet, Spring Moss (PTI), Old Olive, Latte (Adirondack), Accessories: Copper brads (We R Memory Keepers Coppered Out Hardware, Ribbon (May Arts), sponge

Sorry for the long post! Hope you're holiday was great and that you enjoy your Monday - I'm playing "catch up!" :)
