My card today was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge. When I saw the sketch I immediately thought of the beautiful Blackberry Beauty Suite!

I used one of the Basic Borders Dies to crop a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock. I took an Early Espresso Blend and tapped it over the Vanilla panel to add some soft flecks of color to the Vanilla panel.
Next, I stamped and die cut two of the floral images from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set and cropped them with the coordinating dies. I layered these and added a gold sprig from the Blackberry Beauty Ephemera Pack and attached them to the Very Vanilla panel.
I tied a small bow with Linen Thread and adhered it with a glue dot. I stamped the greeting onto a small strip of Very Vanilla cardstock, and positioned this over the Linen Thread bow.
I cut a piece of the Blackberry Beauty Specialty Designer Series Paper – I cut this “strategically” so that the sparrow would show! This panel was adhered to an Early Espresso cardstock base. I added the Very Vanilla panel with dimensionals to the card front.
To finish the card, I embellished with a Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dot.
