Botanicals For You


Hello, I hope your week is going well? Mine has been a bit up and down so far but tomorrow should be great! A friend and I are taking a drive up to Castlemaine - about an hour and a half north-ish from Melbourne....we are looking forward to catching up with an old friend for lunch so it will be lovely! The weather is looking mild  and I will enjoy being a passenger for the day :-) 
And today's card is a thank you that I made last week using the Botanicals For You set that can be earned for free during Saleabration. The set has the lovely and bold sentiment and a variety of flowers and leaves. 


Often I find scattering flowers and leaves to make a full background a bit tricky as I tend to like to balance even "random" images so this was a bit out of the comfort zone but I like the way it has all come together. Fussy cutting the larger flowers and adding them over stamped ones just gave it the little lift it needed :-)


The main sentiment was stamped using Momento Tuxedo Black and the "awesome" was embossed in white for a little contrast. The black and pink twine seemed so perfect to go with the colours it was irresistible! A little Wink (of Stella) to the flowers and rhinestones and this was ready for the post.

Card stock: Melon Mambo, Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black, Melon Mambo, Mint Macaron, Pink Pirouette, Versamark
Stamps: Botanicals For You
Accessories: White Embossing Powder, Basic Rhinestones, Wink of Stella, Triple Banner Punch, Bakers Twine combo pack

Thanks for stopping by today!

Happy stamping until next time,

Jan
