Merry Monday #29! was your weekend? I hope you had a little bit of time to spend stamping. And what better way to keep stamping than to play with us at Merry Monday this week! Look at this fabulous sketch challenge:

And my card:

I wanted to create a flower for the focal image this week and what a beautiful flower our Red Glimmer Paper creates! And so easy with the Big Shot Machine and the Blossom Party Die. I cut two flowers and glued the first one flat. For the second flower, I cut all the petals to make them individual and added a trio of Stampin' Dimensionals in the center. I then curled each petal with my Bone Folder and pressed them to the center:

The background is stamped with VersaMark Ink using the scroll-y image from the Everything Eleanor Stamp Set. I hope you have enjoyed my card for today as August Guest Stamper for Merry Monday!

  • Cardstock: Crumb Cake
