As I looked through my stamps, I didn't think I had any two-step stamps until I stumbled upon THIS set from Impression Obsession! I love that dandelion and forgot I even had it! THIS card from Dee inspired me to take it out. Now, this card from Dee isn't a two stepper,but I loved it! Love the silhouette, loved the oval tag with the sentiment. It's one of those cards that is just easy on the eyes!! So, I did my take on this card!!
I chose to mix up the colors a bit. I wanted something crisp - like her card - but more on the cool side colorwise. So, I stamped my blue centers first and then went over top of them with the outline stamp. The blue is actually an old CTMH color,the light grey is called, I believe, Stone Grey and is a Versafine ink pad. Add a tag (Sizzix) embellished with a circle and greeting Add a sheer blue ribbon and you're almost done! I used the ticket corner punch and added some blue rhinestones for a little pop.
If you look closely here, you see the flowers have a bit of sparkle. I did add some Shimmerz in the color Angel Wings to give it a little pizazz! I also painted this shimmer on the edge of my blue paper. It looks really sparkly and soft which is perfect for a dandelion!

Before I go, I have to share some wonderful cards that ended up in my mail box this week!
The first one is from my mom.. the Rubbermaid... I told her I admired the simplicity of this card. So, she mailed it to me. All it is - is an elegant saying, some beautiful stickers, ribbon and decorative paper. I love how bright it is! It's a card that makes you smile! This second card comes from one sweet lady who spends most of her fall out in the fields, farming with her hubby. She took time to make this card and send me some nice thoughts! Thanks Michaelle! See, I told you getting in your stamp room would be good for the soul! She works pretty darn hard!!
Well folks -- TGIF! Hope you can boot scoot and do a little two steppin' with us!! :-)
