Stampin' Up! always gives us a great floral set as one of the Sale-a-Bration (SAB) freebie choices. The Avant Garden set is it this year. It's a nice mix of sentiments, 2 larger flowers and several small accent stamps.
I've had this color combo saved and I think it's really kind of eye catching. Night of Navy, Watermelon Wonder and Gold. A bit of modern glam. The base is Night of Navy and I layered up with a strip of Watermelon Wonder and a narrow strip of Gold Glimmer paper.
The image panel is Whisper White and I started stamping the flower with Watermelon Wonder ink stamped off once and then I highlighted the center of the flower with the small leaf/petal stamp in full strength ink. The stem, leaves and stamens are stamped in gold.
I sprinkled some of the gold dots across the open white space and then added the sentiment in Night of Navy. The final touch is the gold twine bow tied across the card.
I better wrap this up and get back to making more birthday cards!
Thanks for looking! Did you stamp today?
