Beauty in Bloom

This is another of the cards that I did while we spent the weekend in Vermont stamping. When I saw this flower in my LSS I fell in love with it. I love to garden and spent the whole day yesterday outside getting my gardens in tiptop shape. It didn't hurt that I had my son and husband out there with me digging up and moving plants where I wanted them, prepping the beds for new plants and cleaning up after me! This card reminds me of my flowers!
The stamp is one of the new ones from Cornish Heritage Farms. I colored it with Copics in my favorite colors and brushed on Stickles with a brush so I had a hint of sparkle on the flower. I also used my favorite paper from Magenta, it has soft blues, purples and a touch of yellow, pink and green in it. I added the pearl strand for just a touch of elegance.
Stamps: Cornish Heritage Farms, Hero Arts
Paper: SU Bliss Blue, Lavender Lace, Neenah white and DP Magenta
Ink: Memento black and Copics
Accessories: Nesties, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Stickles, SU corner punch, Misc brads, Michaels ribbon, Joanns Pearl ribbon
Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you stop by again soon.
