Simple Sweet Stems

Well, I was not as productive last night at Scrappy Hour as I had hoped to be. Did a lot more "chatting" than "crafting!" I ended up making three cards, one of which I wasn't too happy with. It was too busy and awkward, and that's what I spent most of my time on in the beginning. My friend liked it so I sent it home with her. Then I banged out two simple cards and I am happy with those. I used plain white cardstock for my base, and I've really started to prefer that "crisp" look. I intended for one of the layouts to work for Amy Rysavy's Friday Sketch Challenge, but I didn't remember it quite right. I have a proper submission in the works and will post it later tonight. Nevertheless, here are the stats for the two I made last night...

Paper: Tea Party dp (SU); accent cardstock (SU)
Ink: Stazon black; SU markers and water color pencils
Embellies: tiny pearls (Kaisercraft); yellow ribbon (SU); flowers (Prima)
Tools: scallop and circle punches (Marvy Uchida); white gel pen (Signo); dimensionals foam dots (SU); border punch (Fiskars)
