Hello everyone,

Today's card is a very different one because I stamped absolutely nothing on this card except my signature stamp on the back. I was inspired by the Monday Lunchtime Sketch from Technostamper and today's Flourishes Timeless Tuesday "bought it, use it" challenge.

The background paper is Stampin' Up Bella Bleu. The remaining paper is Stampin' Up Kraft and Not Quite Navy. The solid paper elements were textured with the Cuttlebug Victoria dry embossing folder. The leaves are Craft Medley from Multicrafts.

I pick up interesting bits and pieces wherever I go and these leaves are one of those finds. I've had them for months and bought them because I thought they were interesting, not because I had a plan for them. Today's challenge from Flourishes was the impetus I needed to get them on a card. I love the results. The sketch was fantastic for this card. I've been anxiously awaiting my recent Stampin' Up order to get my hands on this Bella Bleu paper and I'm not at all disappointed. I didn't stamp anything on this card. I thought about adding a sentiment but decided against it as I really wanted the leaves to stand out. I also couldn't figure out what kind of a card it was - wedding, get well, friendship, it could be any of these things.

Please enjoy and come back to SPI again soon.
