Hero Arts Challenge

This month there are a few themes to choose from for Hero Arts monthly challenge.

I made a happy card for a friend.
Supplies: Hero Arts Stamps (Envelope Pattern, Everyday Sayings), Ink (Memento Summer Sky, Versafine Onyx Black), Hero Arts Digital Kit (Doodle Daisy), Paper (K & Company, Neenah Solar White), MFT Die (Fresh Cut Grass), Recollections Flower Brad

I used digital elements and traditional stamping on this card. The background (which is pretty hard to see) is Hero Arts Envelope Pattern stamped in light blue ink and the sentiment is from the Everyday Sayings stamp set.

The flower is a digital image from the Doodle Daisy kit. I printed off a bunch of the design on different shades of pink cardstock, cut them out and layered them to create a big bloom. I also used a couple of the petals to make the leaves.

I added ribbon for a stem and made two layers of the grass which was die cut.

There's still plenty of time to join in the challenge and you could win some fabulous prizes!

Thanks for stopping by!
