Sending Sweet Wishes


Today at the Penny Black blog, they are featuring clean and simple cards that the designers have created.  Here is the one I made using the newly released stamps.  The flower is stamped onto blue cardstock, embossed with white and details added with a blue pencil before cutting out.  The leaves are embossed with clear onto green.  Dimensional adhesive was used to ‘pop’ the floral arrangement.
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies:  stamps: Petal Party Product #30-113; Puzzle Parts  Product #30-114; Sweet Wishes Product #30-104/ pearls/ piercing tool
