Are things heating up in your part of the world? We're finally starting to experience a real summer here - with delicious warm days that feel just about *perfect*!
I don't know why, but I've had a real urge to go back to where stamping started for me over the past little while - maybe it's because there is just so much you can put on a card nowadays that I feel a bit overwhelmed? But I can't forget how the magic of matching cardstock, ink, patterned paper and ribbon gave me an absolute thrill in the beginning!
So this card was made - because the cicadas are squeaking outside AND the world has matching cardstock and ink :0)!
The 'vase' is created from the negative piece of PTI's Seed Packet Frame die, which I stamped with some distressed stripes to give it some detail.
The flowers and the central panel are mounted on some foam dots for dimension. The centres are layered with homemade and bought buttons - and a little bitty bling :0)
... and I'm popping this in to play at the Moxie Fab World's "Stamp It! Cards Challenge"
Thanks for taking the time in your day to stop by! I'm off to do a spot of not-so-light reading here - any other non-fiction lovers out there?
