Handmade With LOVE.....

Hello everyone: I'm thrilled to announce that I've been invited to be the Surprise Sweetie over at the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge for this week, it's a color challenge using Mint, Poppy and Kraft. Here is my card, hope you like it.

I love this retired set from Flourishes called "Stitched for You", this images are so endearing, they remind me of my maternal grandma, who taught me how to knit and crochet and also how to use the sewing machine.
I stamped this image onto Strathmore multi media water color paper with Stazon black ink and colored it with SU markers, I also added a bit of shimmer paint to the pins on the pin cushion.
The little scissors are stamped onto plain white card stock and fussy cut. They belong to THIS  Power Poppy stamp set called "Sage Advice", I think they also look like fabric cutting scissors, don't you?
I die cut the panels with Spellbinders Floral Ovals and Spellbinders Decorative Labels 8, the sentiments both in the front and inside of the card are from the set.
Here is a close up of those cute little scissors.

And this is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

This is the color chart from the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge that inspired my card.

I want to thank all the fabulous ladies over at Cupcake Inspiration, specially Naki, for inviting me to be their Guest Stamper this week, I'm loving being a Sweetie Guest, hope you give this color challenge a try.
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
