Stick It Down - August Card Sketch

I have to admit, this month's Stick It Down sketch challenged me!  The good news is pulling out all of my stamps to find "the one" and going through my hoarded pile of paper unearthed some fabulous "finds" - right in my own stash!!

You know those stamps you must have when you see someone's card online?  That was the case for me with Altenew's Vintage Flower Set.  It has been in my collection for over a year and has never been inked.  I can't even remember the card that called out, "Buy this set, now!"  I've pulled it out before, but the three layer stamping just sent me over the edge!  

Well, needing three of the same images in different sizes, meant Vintage Flowers finally came out to play.  The clear stamps are nicely stained - Pink Pirouette, Rose Red, Melon Mambo left their mark!  I used Certainly Celery, Pear Pizazz, and Old Olive for the greens. Right At Home Stamp's Script Greetings Die Set and a sheet from that coveted stack of patterned paper from my collection filled in the space!  I love the feminine feel of this card.  In the end, the three layer stamp wasn't so bad!!

Pop by the Stick It Down Blog and see what the rest of the card team has for you this month, and then play along!
