Wishing You Comfort for Gina K.'s Sketch #9 Challenge

I have all day today to be creative and I'm loving every minute of it.  I've finished a few cards and have them ready for this week.  I love fun, productive weekends!

I got a new printer for Christmas (a Canon MG5120) and before I could take it out of the box, I had to deplete the old Dell printer of the ink that it had left.  So, I started printing some of the Color Couture  patterned paper.  I had just gotten more ink before Christmas so I put in the new color cartridge and went to work.  I only got 13 papers printed before it was done.  Isn't that amazing???  I'm really hoping that this new printer does NOT go through the ink as quickly.  Time will tell.  Okay, so on with the details of the

I really liked Gina K.'s sketch this week.  Another very simple one, that you can really dress up as much as you want.  Then I picked one of her stamp sets to use.  I received her Many Wishes set as a freebie for ordering over $35 in December.  I hadn't tried it out yet and thought this would be perfect timing.  WOW is this set just beautiful.  The details in the dandelions are just amazing.  I'm definitely going to have to use this set more often.

Here's my card!

Don't you just love those little parachuting seeds?  I love that this stamp was made for the set.  It's just perfect.

The inside (click to enlarge).  I stamped off the Dark Chocolate ink on scrap paper before stamping again on the inside of this card.  I just wanted to dress up the inside a little bit.
