If you have two loaves of bread sell one and buy flowers. For although the bread will nourish your body, the flowers will nourish your soul.

Stella Ruby

I just love that name. What visual picture does that conjure up for you? I see a slender, middleaged woman in the 1940's who would never leave the house without every hair in place, a hat, gloves and earrings...with lips a little too red and cheeks a little too pink, and a heart of gold. But, I digress. Actually, it's the name of the line of Basic Grey designer paper used on this card. The papers are glorious, deep rich colors. This card is a culmination of three challenges on SCS...sketch, color, and a challenge to use scoring. It's difficult to see in the photo, but the pomegranate cardstock is scored in a diamond pattern, and the green panel is dry embossed. I love the textures this adds. The white sentiment panel has a soft leaf pattern created by first off-stamping with the celery ink. The leaf is celery stamped on celery, with the veining thinly outlined with Stickles.

Recipe: stamps-sentiment (Inkadinkado), leaf (Autumn by SU); paper- Basic Grey 'Stella Ruby', white, SU purely pomegranate, certainly celery, wild wasabi; ink-black archival, certainly celery; accessories- diamond Stickles, green crystal brads, Fiskars wavy texture plate, dimensional tape.
