Blossom Petals

It has been a few days since I have shared a card, so I figured before the weekend sweeps me away, I will post something. This is a card that I made a couple weeks ago and was hoping to find a challenge to enter it into, but haven't. If you see one that fits, please let me know.

This is quite the combination of items! The biggest of them is my new SU! Blossom Petals punch and the stamp set that goes with it, called Build A Blossom. I did not realize what a huge flower this would create! I found a blue gingham dp and card stock in my stash. Decided to stamp the petals on the gingham with black. When I stamped the center, I colored it with Copics and did the cracked ice technique on it before popping it up. I added the lacy corner dies from Heartfelt Creations, Decorative Butterfly Border Dies set. My sentiment circle is placed on an EKSuccess punch. For accents I used sheer polka dot ribbon, and pearls. I would like to enter this card in the Birthday Sundaes challenge #3 Anything Goes, that Janice M. tipped me off to! Thanks, Janice!

Thanks for stopping by. If you are going to the Allentown Stamp Show tomorrow, stop me and say hi! Enjoy the weekend.

Love that big flower and the way you stamped on the gingham is genius....I would love to go to the stamp show but guess a 6 1/2 hour drive is too much...so sad, but hope you have a great time.
