Summer Silhouettes

I found this fun card on Pinterest.  I believe it was by Deena Boos.  I can not find the original card.  I had the image in Pinterest but I didn't pin it.  I just had the card open.  I clicked on the image and I got lost somewhere in cyberspace!  I did try to find the card on her site but I have no idea how far it goes back.  So if you know the direct link please let me know so I can add it to my post and give her proper credit.  But don't look at her card too long.  She did a much better job on it than I did!  LOL  I didn't get my background as smooth looking as she did.  This was my third attempt at that background.  First I smeared the sponge around and it made a dark mess.  Then I took a sponge dauber and smeared the ink around and got another dark mess.  And here I just tapped on the color and I have a blotchy background but at least it's not a dark mess!

I took a scrap piece of card stock and my square punch and punched out the center so I had a square template to sponge in.  Then I did my sponging.  Once I was done with that I stamped on the stems, then the flower tips and finally the words. 

I taped a piece of Garden Green (to match the ink pad) to the Sahara Sand piece.  The top piece is set in place using Dimensionals.  But before I set it in place I attached the ribbon to it.  It's a pretty simple card to make once you get over the blotchy background!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

Myself, I think it's a wonderful card, it's made with love and makes it unique; so hold your head up high,stick out your chest and be proud of what you have done.
I really like the softness of your card.

I made a couple of these cards today. It is relatively easy to make (after a little practice sponging). Thank you for the idea!
