Hope you have a Blooming Great Day

Hi Bloggers.

Sue is on Create & Craft today at 12noon (for 2 hours) and again at 5pm. She has some gorgeous Justrite Stamps on the shows and lots of other new goodies from Creative Expressions. Hope you can tune in.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Perriwinkle Card through the Grand Calibur with Sue's Art Deco Fanfare Embossing Folder.

I stamped the Cut Glass Vase using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I masked the vase and then stamped the Floral Spray, again using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Clear Powder. I made another mask and covered the newly stamped flowers. I stamped the Floral Spray again. I coloured in using Distress Markers. I used Salty Ocean, Ripe Persimmon, Picked Raspberry, Squeezed Lemonade and Mowed Lawn. I cut it out using Spellbinders Branching Out and inked through the die with Faded Jeans. I tied a bow using Cream Satin Edged Organza and added a Frosted Blue Dazzler.

I stamped the sentiment that comes with the Scrollwork Vase using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles and inked through the die with Faded Jeans.

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

Thanks for stopping by.
