Mixed Bunch and SAB

Good Morning

I have a few more cards that use Stampin' Up!'s paper doily cut-out but I decided you needed to see something else first.  Today's card uses a Cherry Cobbler colour-scheme with just a touch of Lucky Limeade thrown in.  A Whisper White mat (4 x 5 1/4) was stamped in all 4 corners with the postage image from Fresh Vintage, and the small flower image was then stamped randomly over the rest of the white space.  This piece was embossed with the square lattice embossing folder, the edges were sponged and it was adhered to a white card base.
The daisy-type image from the Mixed Bunch set was stamped onto a piece of Whisper White and punched out using the new Blossom Punch.  This was layered over a blossom punched from Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  The Lucky Limeade leaves were punched using the Blossom Petals Builder Punch and 'vein' indentations were made using a bone folder.

Three of the largest Boho Blossom flower (in Cherry Cobbler) were scrunched together and a Limeade Sale-A-Bration brad and the coordinating Limeade SAB ribbon was used with these as the flower centre.

This is a cheery card, meant as a thank you to a very valued friend of mine.  I hope she enjoys my little token of appreciation to let her know how blessed I feel to have her as my friend.

For all those about to embark on a Lenten journey, I wish you a Happy Shrove Tuesday!  As for my household, pancakes are definitely on the menu for tonight's dinner!!

God Bless,     ~Cynthia    <><
