Here's a birthday card for a friend using MMB15 as the basis. I was trying for the antique vase look in an animal print. I just got my WPLUS9 order a few days ago and I think that Fresh Cut Florals will be well used.
Happy Canada Day Weekend! I'm am so grateful to live in this wonderful country. (Just wished there was a warm tropical island somewhere that belonged to Canada).
My pink dogwood in the background is almost done, but it's been in bloom for about a month now and I've really enjoyed looking out the den window - through all the rain - at the lovely pink flowers.
The sun is out today - my 3 year old grandson said " I don't see any clouds today. I think they're on holidays."
Here's a closeup of the vase.
Cardstock: PTI White, Black and Fine Linen
Stamps: WPLUS9- Fresh Cut Florals, Stampendous - Simply Safari, Paper Smooches - Shadows
Dies: PTI - Gracious Vases
Other: glitter, rhinestones, Crackle Accents, gold embossing powder, Roman Tiles embossing folder.

I usually make a card with a specific recipient in mind and find inspiration in who they are. I didn't have anyone in mind at first, but I thought the cards made using this technique were really beautiful so I decided to give it a try. And I did think of someone that I want to thank! I don't know if it's the type of white embossing powder I have or the ink I used, but the ink dyed the white embossing lines, which I didn't like and trashed. So I tried again and colored the back side instead. Paper is all from PTI as is the stamp: Year of the Flowers: Mums. The thank you stamp is by Technique Tuesday.
