Lily Pad Cards and CR84FN

I love the sketch being sponsored by Hero Arts over at Lily Pad Cards and had to get this one in.

I also love the colors that CR84FN has out right now... I could create a million things with this color combo!

Here is how I combined them:

It is unfortunate that I have so few Hero Arts stamps... I have 4 sets that are very sadly waiting their turn in my cart...

I actually measured, penciled in lines and masked to stamp 3 strips of of fun typewriter-type text... But then I saw the ribbon and HAD to add it. So there went all of my meticulous stamping. Anyway, I love the kind of distress-y background it makes to the ribbon.

The ribbon and pink ink go better IRL than pictured here.

Thanks for stopping by!
