A Card from Diane Byles' Workshop

Here is a card we made at Diane Byles' workshop! Although this card is great for a male or female, it tends to lean to the masculine side, and I think the colors are gorgeous! What is fun about this card is since we don't have markers in the "In Colors," we inked up the willow (or whatever it is!) in Always Artichoke, used a wet Q-tip to remove the Always Artichoke ink from the flowers, and then used a dry Q-Tip in the lid of the ink pad to ink up the flowers in Baja Breeze. Worked like a charm! I cased this card from Splitcoast. The recipe is below. All supplies used and shown are from Stampin' Up!, with the exception of the Q-Tips!
Paper: Kraft - 8-1/2 X 5-1/2; Manchester Designer Paper (the Kraft plaid print) - 5-1/4 X 4; Manchester Designer Paper (the Always Artichoke plaid print) - 5 X 3; Very Vanilla - 4 X 2-3/4
Stamps: Thoughts & Prayers (P. 58 of the catalog)
Inks: Always Artichoke; Baja Breeze
Miscellaneous: Q-Tips; Eyelet Border Punch; Stamp-a-ma-jig; Always Artichoke Grosgrain Ribbon - 11-1/2" long; Stampin' Dimensionals
