TSG #188 Sponging with Die Cuts


     Aren't these blooms just lovely.  They're almost as beautiful as the bouquet my hubby gave me Friday for our anniversary.  I'll share a pic of those in a minute.
     This card was created for the new challenge at There She Goes Clear Stamps which is "sponging with die cuts".  I used last weeks Mojo Monday sketch and cut my image out using a circle Nestie.  I embossed it and then used a couple of Distress inks to the "sponging".  I did the same for the sentiment.  Both the sentiment and the flowers are part of the "Forever" set you can find in the TSG store.
     If you missed my previous post please click here and read it.  I'd love to have your opinion. ☺
     Here are my lovely flowers.

Happy New Year!

  6. You picked the best color to sponge with H! Your card is sensational. Makes me think of those scratch n' sniff cards we used to get. LOVED those. I'd still probably scratch it anyway in hopes of smelling those gorgeous flowers. However, as beautiful as your card is, those REAL flowers are dynamite!! Happy Happy Happy Anniversary. He definitely scored serious hubby points there. :)
    Hugs and Happy New Year to you my friend.
