Time to blossom

Hello everyone!  Hope everyone has had a good week and a good Saturday.  I have been busy crafting cards for a craft show I will be a vendor at in less than 2 weeks!  I have to get quicker at making cards and gifties.  I did take time out yesterday to make this card for Julee's Mojo 107 sketch challenge and contest.  I chose the Plain Jane quote as the focal point and stamped it in Memento London Fog ink onto white.  I used my Nestabilitiy circles and scallops to cut and emboss.  I also used the Verve image from Budding Blossoms in the left hand panel that I stamped in Always Artichoke and coloured with Copic makers to match the dp that I used from PaperTrey Ink (Tiny Vines) and a dp from Memory Box for the side rectangular panels (Rhubarb Tart) that I think is a very nice compliment to the vines dp.  I backed everything in PTI Ocean Tides card stock (this is my favourite colour ever!) and also punched out a new MS loop border that I think has an elegant style and matches with the overall feel I wanted for this card. (Thanks Yvonne for finding these oh so hard to get new border punches!)  Over the border, I placed a length of PTI ribbon too.  Thanks for looking and hope you have a great evening!
Cheers, Chriss
