Hello friends! It's Kelly here today sharing a floral card using some of my favorite new products paired with a few older favorites as well! I have to admit that this wasn't my first attempt at today's card...I had stamped a beautiful panel of green ink using the new Color Block: Gradiating Stripes background. I love how it looked, until I dropped a stamp RIGHT ON TOP! Has that ever happened to you? I was so sad and it ended up in the bin! Oh well...such is life and it gave me an excuse to pull out one of my other new favorites: Sweet Blooms
It pairs so nicely with the bold floral image from the Sending Love and Hugs stamp set, don't you think? One of the things I love the most about this particular flower image is that you can add many of the sentiments directly onto the image, like I did today. The "tomorrow will be a better day" is stamped directly onto the image.
I also love how nicely the other sentiment complements the first. I heat embossed it with white powder onto a black strip for contrast. This is one of my favorite sentiments, maybe because it reminds me of Anne of Green Gables!
I love the addition of the Essentials: Ornate Oval frame to give the card some extra detail! I love the white on white with the hint of green around the edges. I had a lot of fun working on this card (after I said good-bye to the first background...ha ha) and I'm happy with how it turned out! I guess the sentiment on this card is perfect for me! Thanks for joining me!
