Hope you Have a Blooming Great Day

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

 For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with Sue's Quilted Flower Embossing Folder and inked around the edges with Dried Marigold Distress Ink.

I stamped the Earthenware Vase using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Duck Egg Speckle Embossing Powder.

I masked off the vase, stamped the Daisy Spray using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Pastel Peach Embossing Powder.

I cut it out using Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles and inked through the die with Dried Marigold.

I stamped the sentiment that comes with Scrollwork Vase using Perfect Medium and embossed with Duck Egg Speckle. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels 7 and inked through the die with Dried Marigold.

I tied a bow using White Satin Edged Organza and added a couple of White Pearl Decorative Stick Pins. I cut a Spellbinders Aster Flower Topper Die and inked through the die with Dried Marigold. I added a Frosted Peach Dazzler to the centre.

I assembled the card as shown adding a White 8mm Pearl to each corner and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Cosmic Pearl around the edges.

Phill Martin has shows on Create & Craft today at 10am and 3pm with some of his lovely new stamps. Hope you can tune in.

Thanks for stopping by.
