Swirly Flowers in Fig - Stampin' Up! Swirly Bird

  Always so much to do and never quite enough hours in each day for me to feel caught up so it's going to a short and sweet post today!

  I made this card for my mother-in-law for Mother's Day.  Her favorite color is purple so I was excited when I could use the new In Color Fresh Fig to make her card.  She also loves flowers so really it was a no brainer on what kind of card to make!

  The card base is Fresh Fig with one of the larger Swirly Bird swirls/flowers stamped in Fresh Fig.  Then I embossed a panel of Whisper White with the Softly Falling embossing folder and cut it into 2 unequal pieces and adhered them to the card front leaving the stamped swirls/flowers peeking through.

  The trio of flowers are all a bit different.  The one in the back is embossed with white embossing powder and then watered down Fresh Fig ink is brushed over the top.  The next one is stamped in Fresh Fig and then colored over with clear Wink of Stella.  The one on top is Shimmery White cardstock with the swirl embossed with white embossing powder and then colored over with Fresh Fig ink using an Aquapainter.

   A little piece of the finely woven ribbon peeks out from the side of the top flower.  The sentiment is stamped in Fresh Fig and is popped on Dimensionals.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
