Friday Sketchers - Seeds of Kindness

I adore the stamp I have used for this card, even though I don't use it very often. I think it's the name - Seeds of Kindness. Just look at her sowing her heart-shaped seeds of love. When I look at this image it puts me in mind of a few very special friends who have hearts of gold .... you know who you are xxxxx.

I flipped the sketch to fit in with the image, and love how these Basic Grey Boxer papers work with the stamp.


I threaded some gold organza ribbon through the eyelets that I used in the red layers, and punched the corners of these layers and the image with a Stampin Up Ticket Corner punch. I've left the inside rather plain so there's lot of room for a message.

Recipe:

Seeds of Kindness stamp by Sonlight Impressions is coloured with the usual Distress Inks and H2O's
The papers are from the Basic Grey Boxer 6 x 6 pad
Sentiment is Cuddly Buddly
Flowers are Prima and the centres are little punched daisies (Woodware)

Thanks for looking,

  63. Gorgeous!

    What do you do with all your lovely cards? Box them up? Use them? Sell them?

    I am feeling behind everyone else round here as I haven't been able to make or draw anything so far this year- a combination of illness and no heating in the study/craft room.

    :(
