Upside Down Kind & Caring Thoughts



Good Sunday Morning Peeps. I don't usually post on Sunday but I was super excited about this card, I couldn't wait!!!

I had the idea a couple of days ago when playing with the new Level 3 hostess set, Kind & Caring Thoughts. I thought the flower if turned up-side down would look like fireworks! I think it really does!

I used shimmer white cardstock and masked off the stem and inked the flower up with real red ink and night of navy ink and stamped them. I used a sentiment from A Little Birdie Told Me.

I added some dazzling diamonds glitter to the "fireworks" with my quickie glue pen. The base of the card is Night of Navy followed by white and then real red. I used Classic Stars wheel, for the BG on the real red cardstock, rolled it with real red ink. The night of navy strip is punched on the end with a square punch on an angle and pierced with my piercing tool and mat pack. I added a strip of night of navy punched with the lace edge punch to the bottom of the main image panel that is up on pop dots. I finished off with three white brads in the top left corner and it is done, no ribbon and no DS paper!!!!!

Well, that is all for today, thanks for coming by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
