KSCC#25

It's been a while since I participated on a regular basis in some of my favorite challenges, so this week I pulled out some of my Kitchen Sink Stamps and decided to play along with their challenge #25, which is a sketch found here. I used the KSS Giant Sunflower stamp set for this one, and did the letterpress background with Memento Bamboo Leaves ink on PTI Spring Moss card stock with the floral Impressabilities plate. I'll be doing more of that letterpress technique in other colors because it makes a great background! I felt this card looked fine without a sentiment, so I'll leave it as a blank card for the time being.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
