2RedBananas Challenge - Cardstock Only

I made this card for the 2RedBananas challenge. The “challenge” is to use only cardstock - no patterned paper - and only one embellishment. You can find the challenge here. Not too much of a challenge for me, though, as I rarely use patterned paper! I love patterned paper, love to see other people use it, and have LOTS of it. I just wish I knew how to use it!

I used Anna Griffin ink cubes for the colored squares – just “smooshed” them on the paper. The stamp is by Inkadinkado and I stamped it with Versafine Vintage Sepia. I added a little color to the flowers and leaf with the ink cubes, also, by just rubbing it carefully on the stamped image. It wasn’t meant to be perfect! :-) I mounted the image panel on Stampin’ Up!’s Rose Romance cardstock. The sentiment is from 2RedBananas and is also stamped in Vintage Sepia.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!
