Thank You

Hello Peeps!!!

So sorry for the long silence here on the ol' blog.

I have had a hard time getting back to my craft table after the holidays.
 I could give you a million and one reasons but in the end I guess I just needed the break.

Anyway I pulled out this amazing set from the Occasions catalog called Forever Blossoms.

It is so pretty, don't you think?
I also am using the sketch at  

I began by stamping the image onto thick Whisper White card stock with Black Stazon ink.
I colored with my Aqua Painter and ink pads.
I used Poppy Parade and Old Olive inks.
 I used the matching dies to cut it out.

A couple of other new iems on this card are the Coastal Weave Embossing Folder.
I love it!
I hand cut the partial circle and then embossed. I matted that piece with some Basic Black card stock.

The sentiment on here is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set.
I samped with Versamark onto Basic Black and embossed with White Embossing Powder.
I cu out the strip and used the Tailored Tag punch to flag the end.

The floral cut out piece is added to the card with dimensionals 
and the sentiment strip is tucked under the stem of the flower.

I went back in with my white gel pen and highlighted the centers of the flowers a bit.

I added a few basic rhinestones and some white twine wrapped around my sentiment strip and added a small bow as well.

isted below are all the "ingredients" used to make this project.
