Sweet Blossom Birthday - Stampin' Up! Sweet Strawberry

   Mondays always seem to be a slow start for me!  After a morning of doing odds and ends around the house I found myself at lunchtime already and I hadn't even gotten a card shared yet!  Maybe it's the cold gray weather that's making me slow??  We have snow on the ground but it's still a bit dreary without the sunshine.  My card today is definitely not winter-like!  It has a pastel spring time feel to it!


  I made this one a week or 2 ago for a sketch challenge and then realized once I had the card all finished that it didn't end up following the sketch at all!  Oh well!  Sometimes having a screen up in front of me when stamping is a distraction and other times it seems necessary to stay on track!

  I started this card with a Whisper White thick card base, then a layer of Soft Sea Foam embossed with the Old World Paper embossing folder.

  On the main Whisper White panel I stamped the flower cluster from Sweet Strawberry and colored it in with Blends (colors listed below).  Then I stamped this pretty sentiment from Friends Are Like Seashells in Versamark and embossed it in black.  I edged 2 sides with stripes of the 2019-2021 In Color DSP in Purple Posy and then popped the whole panel up on the card front with dimensionals.

  To bring in a bit more of the Purple Posy I added faceted gems to the four corners.  I also had a leftover crinkled seam binding bow that I didn't use on another project so that went on the stem for the final embellishment. 

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
