Stampendous~ New Friend

We are having the best few spring days lately that I'm really in the mood for more outside days and less one's inside, even if that means less time in the craft room. I spent the weekend at a women's conference and had no time to craft, but left this card "in the works" before the weekend and just finished it up to share this morning.

I'm using some new stamps and tool on this card. The Jumbo Zinnia stamp from Stampendous is peeking out from behind the sentiment layer as an Aged Rose embossed circle and then again on the pink texture cardstock that I kissed the stamp off with some aida cloth. I'm saving the aida cloth for another project... because I pretty much save everything just in case I need it for another project. The sentiment is NEW from Stampendous. It's been available at local Craft stores but now it's available online too! My one new tool is an EK Success Round Binding edge punch. Been waiting for that punch a long time. The little things that make us happy. I started the card off with a sketch from the Cardabilities blog.

 and my color inspiration for the card is from

Stamps: Jumbo Zinnia (Stampendous), Friendly Phrases Set (Stampendous)
Paper: handmade Signature Ivory (Recollections), Baby Pink Light (Bazzill), Kraft (Wausau), scrap of tan copy paper
Ink: Cocoa (CTMH), Versamark Watermark (Tsukineko)
Accessories: Mica Flakes (Stampendous), Aged Rose Embossing Enamel (Stampendous), craft paint dauber (Jenni Bowlin), Round Binding edge punch (EK Success), liquid pearls (Viva Decor), chipboard circle scrap, lace ribbon, handmade crochet flower, pearl (Stampin' Up Pretties Kit)
