MMSC10 Posies in the Breeze

Hello everyone! I made this card for the MMSC10 and also for WT227 over on SCS, which was to use doubles of something. My double was my Lattice Medallions, which I made by cutting a 3" square of GPW and then used my MS Lattice Edge Punch centered on each side. Then I cut off the outter piece, leaving the lattice as the outside edge. The image itself is SU! Summer by the Sea, which is new to me, though an older set. I got this at my LSS yard sale. I have been dying to ink it and just have not had time! My image is stamped on 140 lb Watercolor Paper by Aquarello. It's really too heavy to tear.... now I know! But... once I started it I had to finish it. I sponged my edges with T Holtz Old Paper and Antique Linen.

My card base is Old Olive, and the DPs are from Memory Box Poppyfinch. I followed the sketch and used little Prima flowers for the sketch elements in each corner, and I added some to her bouquet in her hand. The photo doesn't show that as cute as it is irl. After I colored the image I masked to sponge my sky using a template from Rosie's Road Show. The ribbon is from my stash. Hope you like this summery card. I was just happy I could play today. My grandkids are coming tomorrow so it will be more difficult to get stamping done, but I do have a few things ready to show you! Thanks so much for stopping by!
