Thinking of You Pansies

Sketches and colors and inky fingers, oh my!  It was fun to bring out some of my older stamp sets and make another thinking of you card for my stash.  All but one of the stamp sets I used is a year old or older which is a requirement of the Retro Rubber Challenge.  Don't you think the pansies are pretty in the colors from the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge?


Stamp Sets:  Background Bits (2017), Flower Shop (2013), In the Meadow (2016), Sheltering Tree - sentiment (2015), Timeless Textures (2016); Inks:  Basic Black Archival, Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry; Cardstock:  Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Whisper White, Whisper White Thick; Other:  Pansy Punch, Pearl Basic Jewels

The colors I used are from the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge.  For all the challenge details and to share your project, click the image below.
