Ornate Blossom Beauty

I have been wanting this stamp -- Ornate Blossom -- every since I first saw it in the catalogue this year, and was thrilled when it showed up as a FREE Sale-a-bration stamp!  It is so elegant and easy to use in several different ways.  Here, I just plain stamped it -- but it looks awesome using the "kissing" technique, or colored with markers in contrasting colors, as well.

I love the fact that the Greenhouse Gala designer paper matches this stamp, as well as the "mini ornate blossom" from the "Friends Never Fade" stamp set -- I stamped the little blossom in Baja Breeze ink on the background of this card.  For that marvelous blue glitter around the circle, I used the Mono Tombo multi glue -- the stuff with the green lid -- put a little line of glue around the edge, and dumped the new Baja Breeze chunky glass glitter (from the new Occasions Mini) on it.  It really makes the central image POP!  LOVE IT!!! :)  I hope they make this glitter in lots more colors.  It's gorgeous and unique!
