Brighten up the Month!

When I went to my stamp room to "play" today, I was longing for color and brightness and sparkle! -- and this is what I came up with!  This card features the Build a Blossom stamp set and matching punch as well as the Tulip Frame embossing folder and the new fabric brads from the new Occasions Mini.  I love all of these products.  The flower set and punch can create a lot of different looks.  After building the flower, I spritzed it liberally with shimmer mist (made from rubbing alcohol and champagne shimmer paint), so in real life, it is SOOO sparkly!

I curled the second layer of petals using my bone folder -- and stuck them all on with a square of sticky pages.

Here are a couple of other cards using this same stamp set and punch.
 Supplies: Build a Blossom stamp set and punch, tulip embossing folder, Baroque Motifs stamp set, Elements of Style stamp set.  Baja Breeze, Pumpkin Pie, Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz card stock.  Baja Breeze, Pumpkin Pie, Certainly Celery, and White Craft inks.
