Simply Stampin Challenge 46

The people over on the Simply Stampin challenge blog have given us a sketch to follow this week - I do like a nice sketch and here it is
 For my card I decided to have a floral theme and started with the main image by stamping a background using the large En Francais text stamp onto some white card followed by flowers and leaves from Greenhouse Garden and A Rose is a Rose which are both two-step stamp sets..  This was then embossed with Swiss Dots embossing folder, trimmed to size and sponged around the edge.  The papers and card are all from Stampin Up and some of their punches were used for the border, sentiment etc.  The two flowers on the bottom corner were from Vintage Vogue with touches of  Fresh Vintage and some pearls. Ink colours used were Perfect Plum, Certainly Celery and Wild Wasabi.


  1. This is sooo lovely.. I especially like the colour combo..delicious!
