Fancy Flowers

Hi! 

How is your weekend going? Mine is lovely, we had a wonderfully relaxing day at home yesterday and today is my dad's birthday! I've made him an awesome card (I'll be showing you it sometime later this week!) I'm super impressed with it and I think he's going to love it too! 

So today is a busy day filled with church and lunch at my parents' but I've just got time to squeeze in a card for you!

My card is using the Flower Shop stamp set which I've been plaing with this week as I've borrowed it off my downline, Debbie. I was inspired by a card I made during last year's Sale-A-Bration using the Bloomin' Marvelous set. 

 I kept the same colour palette of Summer Starfruit, Sahara Sand & Grey but just stepped it up a bit.


Stamp Set: Flower Shop, Lots of Thanks
Ink: Sahara Sand, Summer Starfruit, Smoky Slate
Cardstock: Sahara Sand, Summer Starfruit, Smoky Slate, Whisper White
Punch: Pansy, Boho Blossoms, Itty Bitty
Embellishments: Rhinestones

I stamped the flowers along the edge. I used the masking technique with some printer paper so I could have the flowers overlapping. Then came the fiddly task of cutting the edge. Actually it wasn't TOO hard, just took it nice and slow and went to my happy place. I must be nuts, I LOVE cutting intricate things out!! The cut edge really makes the WOW factor on this card!


I really debated adding the punched flowers, it looked so pretty and fresh without the flowers but you know what I'm like when I get hold of punches....I go nuts! For a simpler version I think this would look so cute without the punched flowers and maybe just add a little glitter to the flowers for some sparkle and shine!? The rhinestones make it even more flashy and special! 

Hope you have a nice Sunday whatever you're doing,

Happy Stampin',
