Le Jardin 10 Minute Card

Hi!  Thought I'd play in a Flourishes Gimme Ten 10-Minute challenge today.  Seems that's about all the time I truly had to actually make a card today....busy, busy day.




Love that Swirly Parchment Frame by Sweet Stamps.  It dresses up a card in no time.  The tree, sign and leaves are all from Stampin' Up!'s Le Jardin Botanique, a set I adore but don't get much inky time with.


An oval punch helped make this a quick card.

Also entering this at:

The arches on the Coliseum inspired me to pull out the swirly frame stamp; lots of arches on there.

Okay, that's it for me!  This post took way longer than the actual card!  ;)





Dimensions: 4.25" x 5.5"
Stamps: Le Jardin Botanique - SU; Swirly Parchment Frame - Sweet Stamps
Paper: white - PTI
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black - Tsukineko; Soft Suede - SU
