Joan *Day 2*

It's day 2 of inspiration with Joan B.  Her card today is extremely soft and lovely:
The pretty pastels and layered stamping are so elegant!
Here is my take:

Like I said yesterday, I am working on creating gift sets I can give for Christmas so this one belongs in this group of three:

All stamps by Penny Black.  The flowers were stamped using Distress Stains (Peeled Paint, Wild Honey, and Fired Brick) onto Tiara White Cardstock.  The top and left hand corners were then pierced using the Tim Holtz ruler, piercing from the back.  Next I added Antique Linen and Old Paper Distress Ink to the background and stamped the sentiment.  The woodgrain background is patterned paper from Crate Paper (Emma's Shoppe Collection).

Don't forget to stop by the Mementos blog today.  I'm sharing 2 cards using the new Penny Black elf stamps (soooo cute!).  Oh, and I'm also excited to announce that Mementos is now offering paper packs with our favorite patterned papers (for only $3.50!).  More info in today's post.  Here's a peek at the cards:
