Wedding Flowers


Hi, I'm back from a lovely weekend visiting my sister in Brisbane. 
She kindly let me use her newish Stampin Up stamps - Flower Shop I think they're called.
I stamped with vanilla ink and embossed with her gold pearl powder. I did some on vellum and some on white card. I've fussy cut and layered the vellum flower over the card flower so I could give them some shape, it's a bit hard to see in the photo though.

I'm linking up to a few challenges.
At Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge the theme is wedding or anniversary.

Inkspirational has a tic tac toe challenge.

I've gone with a diagonal row, flowers, ribbon and pearls.

At Cuttlebug Mania the theme is Let's feel it, to add texture to your project. You also need to use a manual machine like a cuttlebug.

Edited to add: I've just realized the theme at The Card Concept is a floral one, so I'm going to link up there too. I think my card fits the clean and layered category as the base is totally embossed.
Here is the gorgeous inspiration pic.


Materials used: SU Fancy Fan embossing folder; SU Flower Shop stamp; gold pearl embossing powder; 3mm ribbon and double sided tape; Martha Stewart Frond punch; turquoise shimmer paper; pearl bling and sentiment sticker from stash.

Thanks for visiting :)
