Urban Special Reason ~ CCMC453, SIP94

Hello stampers!  It's time for another Create with Connie and Mary challenge and this week we've got a sketch.  I also used some inspiration from Stamp Ink Paper which features one of my favorite kinds of challenges....tic-tac-toe!  I chose to go straight across the top with Pink, Flower, and Lace.  

I knew I wanted to use black and white with a pop of pink so I went with the distressed looking Urban Underground DSP that goes nicely with the distressed look of these pretty flowers from {Special Reason}. For the flowers I inked them up in Flirty Flamingo and then used a Melon Mambo inked sponge dauber to sponge the darker ink directly onto the stamp before applying it to the cardstock.  I did the same thing with the leaves, inking them up with Pear Pizzazz and then added Emerald Envy to the bottoms with a sponge dauber.  I like the subtle color change it produced!  
After die cutting the images with the coordinating dies I mounted them to my base, popping the little flower up with dimensionals.  I added the silver rimmed pearls to the center of each flower for a bit more pizzazz.  
A bit of lace trim and black banner finish off my card.

Here's a list of my supplies....
Stamps: Special Reason
Ink: Flirty Flamingo, Melon Mambo, Pear Pizzazz, Emerald Envy, White craft
Paper: Urban Underground DSP, Very Vanilla, Flirty Flamingo, Black
Accessories: metal rimmed pearl, lace trim, white embossing powder

Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!
