oh... how i love you!

Hello friends... long time no post!!  Took another break from posting... have had lots of paper crafting to do lately and finally got some of it done today.  Unfortunately it isn't anything I can post on my blog and I still have more to accomplish!!  Anywhoo... I was able to get a card made for this week's Dynamic Duos challenge.


I recently got a PTI order and one of the things I ordered was the new stamp and die set Mum's the Word.  I love anything floral and if it comes with matching dies... sign me up!  So I just had to make something with my new goodies.   I also got the Boutique Borders:  Love stamp and die set and combined that with Mum's the Word.    Initially I was going to go with just everything layered on the plain white cardstock piece, but decided that it needed just a little bit more and so I embossed the piece with the Cuttlebug Modern Wallpaper embossing folder... I think it gives it just that little extra that it needed.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; SU! Crisp Cantaloupe; Ink:  SU! Calypso Coral; Hero Arts Soft Cantaloupe, Memento Tuxedo Black; Stamps:  PTI Mum's the Word, Boutique Borders:  Sympathy; Dies:  PTI Mum's the Word and Boutique Borders:  Sympathy dies; Cuttlebug Modern Wallpaper embossing folder

Hello Rosie
I cannot believe I read ..."I think it needed a bit more!!!!!" But you were right of course, the Bg is stunning juxtaposing with the Blooms.
