Unscripted Sketches #40

This card is based on this week's Unscripted Sketches #40. I love the image of the flowers, it is from Close to my Heart's set called "Enjoy Every Moment". I stamped and then dry embossed the image to make the flowers pop out, then colored them with pastels. The patterned paper is from the "Bella" paper pack and the base of the card is textured cardstock in New England Ivy.
If you're not familar with Close to my Heart's textured cardstock, you should give it a try. It is like getting two for one; since the back side is a lighter shade of the front. I used the lighter shade of this one in the strip down the right side.
February will be a great time to try out this great cardstock, because Close to my Heart is offering Buy One Get One Free! From February 1-28, 2010, 12 x 12 textured cardstock combo packs are not only buy one get one free, but for every offer purchased, CTMH will donate $2.00 to Operation Smile's Haiti relief efforts. How great is that?
