Well here it is the second week of the Tuesday Card Challenge #2.  This is what we are suppose to work with.

This card took me a little longer because the method that I wanted to try did not work for this card so will have to use it some other time. Here is my card how do you like it?

Get Well Challenge Card #2 032111

The left picture is of the outside of the card and the right picture is of the inside of the card.

1. Stamp with River Rock ink the daisy stamp on the plain card.
2. I cut out my two sizes of scalloped circles, sponged inked the edges, then snailed them to the top left corner avoiding the stamped image.
3. Re ink the daisy stamp this time in Basic Brown and stamped to the side of background image.  Make sure to press really hard in the area where the scallop circles are to transfer the ink proper.
4. Using a sponge with Dark Brown ink I sponged the outside of my card.
5. I used Sizzix die cut to make the scallop edging then punched large holes so Dark Brown Felt Ribbon would show. Before glueing I inked edges with Dark Brown ink using a sponge.
6. Apply snail to back of scallop edge of River Rock piece and glue felt ribbon to cover holes letting stitching show, thread So Saffron ribbon in second hole, attach to die cut tag and tie in bow.  I added some glue dots to back of tag to keep in place.
7.  Inside of card I stamped the small daisy in River Rock, then stamped sentiment over top in Basic Brown.  Under this I added the left over piece that I cut from the scallop circles from front.

  1. Well now I have to dust off my Inspired by Nature stamp set -- so in love with this shadow technique! Also love your color choices and how you did your side trim. Very pretty card Kathy, glad you got it in on time for the Try Stampin' On Tuesday challenge. I know from personal experience how hard it is to create when you have a design to follow, so thanks so much for playing along.
