Every Flower is a Soul

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Spellbinders Paisley M-Bossabilities Folder. I inked around the edges with Aqua Adirondack Dye Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Garden Sayings Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Floral Ovals and inked through the die with Aqua ink. I cut a Spellbinders Labels 25 out of Blue Card. At the emboss stage I added the Delicate Mask. I inked through the die with Aqua Ink. I cut a Persian Motif out of White Card and inked through the die with Aqua Ink. I cut it in half and popped it behind the Labels 25 die cut.

I cut a border out of Blue Card using the Persian Accents Die Set.

I cut 6 circles out of 2 shades of Blue Card using Spellbinders Splendid Circles and used them to make a scrunched up flower. I cut a corner from the Persian Accents die set and popped that underneath the flower.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Pearl Swirls and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pealescent PVA in Summer Blue.

Thanks for stopping by.
