For this card I started by stamping a script background and flowers from Happiness In Bloom. To soften the background I heat embossed the sentiment onto vellum. Now, looking back at this, I should have cut the vellum smaller than the card itself to allow some of the true colors to come through. (Lesson #1 learned) I stamped and die cut the flowers and added stickles to the centers and attached them to the vellum. I'm more of a CAS card maker so my brain told me to stop here. Again, I think I could have added some ribbon, a bow and button to the top to give it more interest. (Lesson #2 learned)
This card was made using the little pinking square die from Button Boutique, cut out of different patterns of scrap paper. Rosie Posie continues to be one of my favorite flower stamp sets and I thought the generous size made a good focal point for this card. I added button stacks to each of the other squares and a little tag for the sentiment. The polka dotted ribbon and bow is so sweet!
My last card uses papers from My Minds Eye called Find Your Wings & Fly. I added a pink heart border that is hard to see in the photo but shows up better in real life. The flowers are stamped using Just Rite Botanical Medallions and Banners and colored using my copics. The sentiment is stamped and heat embossed on a vellum banner in gold. The gold sequins finish it off.
As I said, it was a super fun and challenging challenge for me and I hope you'll pop over to Marcia's blog to see her Melissa Phillip's style cards. Thanks so much for stopping by! Blessings~ Birgit
