The Mojo Monday has a sketch that is just perfect for the image of the swing and over at Fab Friday the color challenge shouts 4th. of July, I love it when I can combine challenges this way.
I stamped all the images on Canson water color paper with Versafine Onix Black ink and heat embossed them with clear embossing powder, I fussy cut the kitty and pillow and colored everything with SU markers and the aqua painter. The Cherry Tree branch is from a retired SU set called "Eastern Influences". I sponged the sky with Broken China distress ink and colored the Cherry Blossoms with Pretty in Pink marker.
The card stock and ribbon are from my stash.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.
The sentiment is from a retired SU set called Perfectly Penned and the little image on the corner, from a retired Flourishes set called "Patriotism on Parade".
Here are the banners that inspired my card.
Thank you for stopping by today, until next time, Happy Stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
