Jardin - Card #2 - July Club/Class Card

Here is card #2 for my July club/class.  

The inspiration for this card started with the monthly sketch challenge at Crafting Life's Pieces. 

The stamp set I used is called Jardin. I bought this set over a year ago because I absolutely LOVE it. Time just got away from me and the Sonoma papers that I planned to use with it was retired. Now, in two weeks this stamp set will also be retired. I guess it's better late then never. But this is a stamp set that I will never get rid of. It's perfect for any occasion. Wouldn't this make a beautiful sympathy card!

I don't know why the ribbon looks off-color on the photo. It looks perfect in real life. The background paper is from the CTMH paper pack called For Always. This paper will also retire the end of this month. 

The Cardstock and Ink Pad is Smokey Plum.

I'm always in awe over cards with lots of die cuts and embellishments, probably because it is hard for me to create cards like this and still make them look good :-). Love your card and love the purple accent color. Simply gorgeous. Thanks so much for playing along with us in The Sisterhood of Crafters in our Black, White and One challenge.
