February Flowers

This is the only card I have made this week. I made a stamp trade with Sandy Dawes aka Little Mabel on the Papertreyink Forum. She sent me her Women of Life and I sent her Vintage Picnic. This card is just a little thank you to her. She sent me a really cute card using Honey Bee Sentiments that I have posted here also. My card uses the newly traded stamp set, Women of Life. I stamped the flower image in Raspberry Fizz and filled in the flower centers with hibiscus burst and terracotta tile. The stems are in ripe avocado. I used a little glitter pen on the leaves and in the center of each flower petal. I used my new Martha Stewart punch to edge the raspberry fizz layer and cut the flower image out with a Spellbinder Labels 4. I think next time I would cut a smaller mat with the label and show the whole decorative border. Oh well, next time. I edged the label with a hot green lipstick stamp. A few pink rhinestones and a little decorative border strip on the inside of the card finished it off. I have sure been enjoying the Papertreyink anniversary festivities all week and am looking forward to the rest of the anniversary. Thanks again Sandy. Paper: Spring Moss, Raspberry Fizz Ink: Hibiscus burst, Raspberry Fizz, Ripe Avocado Stamps: Women of Life Extras: Rhinestones, glitter pen and martha stewart punch, corner rounder
