Loves Rubberstamps - Sunday Inspiration Blog Hop

Good Morning Friends,

First, I would like to wish all the men in your life a Happy Father's Day.  

Welcome to the Loves Rubberstamps weekly Sensational Sunday Blog Hop! The Design Team has created some gorgeous projects for your Inspiration. Check out each link and leave a comment. If you get lost along the way, each stop will have a full list of links. One of the Design Team posts is the hop's Sensational Sunday Sweet Spot and a name will be drawn from that list of comments to win a $10 Loves Rubberstamps store gift certificate. So, all you have to do is hop along and see all the creations and leave a little love for the Designers! You have until Saturday, June 22 nd, at 8pm CST. Have fun and we hope that you enjoy the hop!

If you've arrived here from Dangina's blog you are right on track! If not, I have posted the whole blog hop list below just in case you get lost along the way!

It has been a very busy week, but very good here.  I just got back from business travel to CA on Friday afternoon.  It was a jam packed trip, but I learned so much while I was out there.  This weekend has been very busy with celebrations and another today, but I wouldn't have it any other way!  OK, so now to the card for this week!

I have made a gate fold card, I was a bit tired of the normal 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 inch card.  It needed to be mixed up a bit!  The image is by Magnolia, Tilda with Big Tulip Pot.  That looks like quite the load, doesn't it?  She is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with copics.  The background is in My Mind's Eye, Miss Caroline collection.  I thought it went well with the image.  I have also added some flowers, pearls and lace to embellish the card.  The circle was cut with Spellbinders, scalloped circle die and the image was inked with Gathered Twigs distress ink.  I very loosely followed Deconstructed Sketch 104.

Copics used:
Skin:  E000, E00, E11, E21
Hair:  E34, E50, E53, E57
Pot:  E99, YR24, YR27
Flower, Leaves, Dirt:  E41, E41, E43, E44, G20, G21, G94, G99, R20, R22, R24, R27, R29
Pants:  W1, W2, W3, W5
Shirt:  BG11, BG13, BG15, BG49
