Starbucks Inspired

Happy Monday! So the story behind this card is inspired by a trip to Starbucks this past Saturday during my mommy-daughter date with my 5-year-old, Avery. We go there and have little girl chats over kids cocoa and vanilla chai tea and it's a delightful time, just the two of us. Of course Avery wanted to go buy some Mickey Mouse stickers at the scrapbook store with her money, so who am I to argue? We went there too of course. Anyway... Starbucks has all of the Valentine's mugs on clearance (already?) and I saw this mug there and instantly thought of the flowers in Heartfelt Thanks. You know you have a passion when you see stamps in a Starbucks... So here is the inspired Valentine's card that I did with Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge and it was such a fun and simple card. I stamped the Crosshatch background stamp in Versamark on Mellow Moss. The flower images are stamped with my markers - Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, and the outline is Rose red. The stems are Mellow Moss marker as well and I flipped the stem upside down to make the stems go in different directions. The other ribbon is adhered separately behind the flower image, but I looks like it's all one ribbon on the card.

Have a great day and thanks again for stopping by!
