Bloomin' Beautiful and Presto Patterns
There is a panel over the card base that has been punched with the Pinking Hearts border punch. Although not in the current catalog, the punch, # 117649, is available as a write-in item.
The next layer is the Presto Specialty paper with the argyle pattern. I sponged it with Regal Rose ink to bring up the embossed pattern. Isn't it pretty? There are 6 different patterns in the package of 12 sheets, available in the summer mini catalog, #117175, for $11.95.
The main image is from the Bloomin' Beautiful stamp set, #111490, fo $25.95. It was stamped on Whisper White paper with black StazOn ink. The Blossom definition was added with Old Olive ink stamped off once, and placed exactly where I wanted it with the Stamp-a-ma-jig. The flower was colored in with watercolor crayons and an Aqua Painter.
The bow was made from the lovely 5/8" Old Olive satin ribbon (#117292 @ $8.95). It was pulled together with a styled silver brad from the Hodgepodge Hardware collection (#111325).
This card uses lots of fun items. Hope you like it!
