CPS Challenge #74

I decided to do another sketch challenge by Card Positioning Systems. It was a nice straight forward layout, and as usual, I created a card with a pretty literal take on the sketch. I went with the sketch "as is."

For today's card, I chose stamps and paper by Memory Box. I will be taking two classes with Dave Brethauer (one of the Memory Box owners) in the beginning of August, and I am already so excited! I just love all of Memory Box products.

The card is a very easy one to make. As an homage to my friend Donna, I stamped the dandelion in Chestnut Roan ink and then stamped a couple dandelion pieces floating away from the stem. I added a saying underneath with the same brown ink. To give the piece a little "pop," I edged each of the dandelion petals with a gold Spica pen. Do dandelions have petals? leaves? what? When the light hits the card, you can see the glitter sparkle of the Spica pen.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Really pretty card. BTW, I took your questions re dandelions literally. The flowering dandelion consists of single seeded fruits called achenes. :-)
