Stampin Up “Botanical Blooms” Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, It is Thursday again and you know what that means?  Another fun Happy Stampers Blog Hop for you.  Today we had a sketch to work from.  I like the sketches, it makes it easier for me to start my card, as it gives me a jumping off point to create.  I usually tweak my design just a bit. `Oh the fun of creating and making each design your own.


Here is a look at the sketch we used:

Medium Flower: Melon Mambo sponged with Melon Mambo.

All the other flowers and leaves are the same as the ones described above.

Finishing Details: I added embellishments from the “Love Blossom” Embellishment kit and “It’s My Party” melon Mambo  enamel dots to add some extra pop.  I also added some more rhinestones scattered about with the enamel dots so tie in the flower centers to the card.
