Stamping 411 Sketch 249 Floral Fusion in Pink

Hello Stamping Friends,
Oh it’s been a glorious week here in Florida! the weather has been outstanding. Well all except for the day we had tons of rain…but the good news is it got rid of a ton of pollen. I can breathe again!!! hehe
Time for another sketch challenge from Stamping 411. Hope you’ll find time to play along this week.
Here is the sketch:SSC_249
….and my interpretation.
sketch 249-250 and online swap card 003
My card features the cute little die called “Floral Fusion”!!! I love this little die. It’s so easy to work with and speaks for itself…don't you think?
  • My card Base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded in half after scoring with the Simply Scored.
  • Speaking of the Simply Scored….I scored the white mat at every quarter of an inch on the ends doing three score lines on either side. I think it’s a nice touch for this sketch, what do you think?
  • The flowers were run through the Big Shot using Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose and Melon Mambo. I sponged them all on the edges….with like inks and added glue dots between the layers of flowers.
  • I then attached to the card with a glue dot as well
  • I felt it missed something so added a little bling to the centers of the flowers using the Rhinestones.
  • The Happiest Birthday Sentiment is from the Apothecary Set and stamped in Melon Mambo.
I hope you like my little creation today and will hop on over to Stamping 411 to see what the other Operators have come up with.
Have a Great Day and Happy Stamping!!!!
