Field of Flowers

Hi everyone,


I have been away for a few days celebrating my birthday and I have had a great time which included my my sister flying up for Melbourne to spend the weekend.


I caught up with my friends whom I stamp with on Friday night and had birthday cake and a cup of Tea.  Then last night I had a long talk to my best friend that lives in London.


This is the first chance I have had to do some crafting and I created a card with the Field Flowers stamp set.  It is a lovely 2 step stamp set and I have also used some of the Lucky Limeade Organdy Ribbon that is  in the Sale-A-Bration catalogue.


I have taken my colour inspiration from the Play Date Cafe challenge and the sketch inspiration from Moving Along with the Times.  The colours used were Blushing Bride, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake and Lucky Limeade.






Stamp set: Field Flowers

Card: Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake, Lucky Limeade, Very Vanilla
Ink: Lucky Limeade, Crumb Cake, Blushing Bride, Regal Rose

Accessories:  1/8” (3.2 mm) Lucky Limeade Organdy Ribbon, Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folders,  Curly Label Punch, 1-3/4” (4.4 cm) Circle Punch, Basic Rhinestones,  Dazzling Diamonds, SNAIL Adhesive


Unfortunately you cannot see from the photo the Dazzling Diamonds that I added to the centre of the larger flower and on the top of the smaller blossom.  There is always room for more bling of course  :)
