Last year I loved this stamp set and this year I had not even pulled it out until today. What was I thinking? Anyway, I am finally using it and very happy with the outcome. What initiated this card? The Stamping 411 sketch that was posted yesterday! For some reason it just spoke to me and I automatically reached for this stampset. You can find the wonderful sketch here!
And, another challenge that initiated this card is the SULateNightStampers Group! Our challenge this week is "1-2-3 Challenge -make a project that using one stamp set, two embellishments and three colors!" So that is where the 3 colors came from - Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, two embellishments - Always Artichoke Seam Binding ribbon and Stiched Felt Winter Wishes Mittens, - one stamp set is the Bells & Boughs. OK, I just realized I might have cheated if you would think the Petals a Plenty embossing folder is a embellishment. I am thinking that is just an Accessory! What about you?
Here is a close up of the stamped image!
And a side view of the card!
Well I have told you everything I used on the card except for markers, blender pen and the Shimmer paint mixture that I spritzed on it to give it a little shimmer. And it is just enough to make it sparkle. Wish you could see it in person.
Thanks so much for looking and let me know what you think!
