Sent With Love

Today was a very stressful day at work.  All I wanted to do when I got home was not think about work.  Conveniently I had a Stampin' Up! box of goodies waiting for me when I got home.  Since my hubby was sleeping when I got home (because he works nights now and we are both not quite adjusted yet) I decided to break in the goods.  

I knew I wanted the Sent With Love stamp set as soon as I saw it.  I got the bundle and knew exactly what I wanted to make when I saw it.  I had scoped out some blog challenges the other night and it all popped into my head once I had the stamp set in my hand.  When I realized that the Sent With Love DSP was pretty similar to the spring colors in the PPA Color Challenge I decided to wing it and use Primrose Petals instead of Calypso Coral and it all came together.

Stampin' Up! Supplies:
Stamp: Sent With Love
Cardstock: Sent With Love DSP, Pool Party, Real Red, Primrose Petals
Ink: Primrose Petals
Extras: Circle Die & Embossing Folder (Sizzix); Paper Piercing Tool
