Pink Blossoms

Today's card is for two challenges:  Color Throwdown (CTD208 - melon mambo, whisper white, pink pirouette, garden green) ... and CAS-ual Friday (CFC69 - embossing).  I used my new embossing folder from SU! called Fancy Fan for the backdrop to the spray of pink blossoms.  I love this new folder ... so pretty and the embossing is very clean and deep.  Hope you like.

"Pink Blossoms"

Stamp:  A Word for You (SU!)
Paper:  Whisper White, Pink Pirouette (SU!); Heavy White (Neenah)
Ink:  Garden Green, Melon Mambo (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot, Fancy Fan embossing folder (Sizzix), Flutter Vine die (Memory Box), 8 Petals & Branch die (C.C. Designs), medium oval punch, sponges, mat pack, stylus, glue and dimensionals

I sponged Garden Green onto the Whisper White Flutter Vine to mute the tone of the green.


I've had a very exciting week!  My "Seas the Day" card was picked as one of the top cards for August for Clear Dollar Stamps.  As well, my "Sweet Rainbow" card was mentioned for the Color Throwdown  ... and picked as "Top Addict" at Addicted to Stamps.  And, my "Swirly Tree" card was picked by Jaydee as the "Headliner" for Paper Players.  I am so thrilled!! :)
