Apothecary Art in Primrose

It's Paper Players 100th challenge.  Wow, ladies, that's a lot of challenges to come up with and design for. Congratulations and thanks for all the inspiration.

This weeks challenge is

I chose Challenge #52 A Clean & Simple Sketch Challenge

Here's the sketch...

I used one of the new In Colors called Primrose Petals.  It's such a beautiful shade of pink. The photo doesn't do it justice.  And I think it's the first time I've posted a card using the Apothecary Art set.  These pretty little flowers are so easy to color with markers and with the matching Framelit die, they're a cinch to cut out.

The Happy Birthday sentiment comes in the set and fits so perfectly.
A few pearls, a butterfly, and it's done.

All supplies are Stampin' Up!

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Apothecary Art
Ink:  Jet Black StazOn
Paper:  Whisper White, Primrose Petals, Daffodil Delight

It's already hot and humid here.  It's going to be a stay inside hug the air conditioner day I think.

Thank you for so many Anniversary wishes.  I appreciate every one.

So glad you could visit today.  I hope you come back soon.

I'm trying to refrain from putting the heating on here in the sunny UK! I am a big fan of red so naturally love this! I like the strips of card you've added over the embossing.

Hug that air conditioner! LOL It's really hot and humid here in NJ, too; feels like I'm in Houston or Nags Head. ;)

What a pretty card this is, Bonnie. Love the stamp, the frame, the way you colored those flowers, and lots of - what is it? Primrose Petals? - deep pink. Gorgeous!
