Bloom Forever

Good Morning!

Today's card will be entered into the Challenges at; Power Poppy, Frame It Up, Simon Says Wednesday, Hint Of Pink, Simon Says Monday, It's A Frame and Penny Black, Photo Inspiration.

 
 
 
I was drawn to the colors of the photo.
 
 
 
Luckily I don't need a sympathy card as yet, but as I was thumbing through my stamp sets I came across this beauty from Power Poppy, Soothing Sympathy.  It has beautiful images and comforting sentiments.  I started with my stamped background panel which was cut using some of the PTI Shakers And Sprinkles dies.  I knew I would place another framed panel over that so I made sure my stamped images would also create a frame of sorts.  Sheer Ribbon.
 
 

 
 
This panel was cut using the MFT Cross Stitched Rectangles dies, which I layered twice to create another frame.  My sentiment fit perfectly within.  Raven Black ink and Copic Markers.  I also backed it with a piece of Fun Foam to make it nice and sturdy and to add a bit of oomph!
 
 


 
 
I then stamped this pretty posey, colored it and fussy cut it out.  I also added a WOS Clear Glitter Pen and a couple of pop dots to support it.  
 
 
 

 
This adds a bit of depth.
 
 


 
And dimension.
 
 
The card stock is that Michael's Recollections Brand, Ballerina pack, full of beautiful shades of pinks.  Designer Paper is Darice Coredinations, Pink Prints.   These both are quite affordable and do not look cheap or feeeeeel cheap, by any means!
 
Thanks for coming by, love it when you do.
 
Enjoy~~
