Build-a-Blossom 'Enjoy'

It's crazy - but I move on Saturday! SATURDAY!!! Can you believe it? I'm so nervous, so excited - I don't know what I am! I have packed up all my stampin' stuff which is a bit sad, but not before I made a few last projects. One of the cards I wanted to make was for the two ladies who purchased our current home. We will buy them a bouquet of flowers so that they have something pretty for their new home. But what is a gift without a thoughtful handstamped card?

This week's color challenge over at the Dynamic Duos Blog was to use Pretty in Pink and Certainly Celery. Perfect for a card to welcome two lovely ladies to their new home.

Tips & Tricks:

*I haven't used the Build-a-Blossom stamp set and coordinating punch in a while. I love how it has different sizes of petals as well as leaves.
*Since my background is Whisper White, I stamped tone-on-tone for both the petals and leaves.
*I love how everything SU! coordinates. The button is so perfectly Certainly Celery, just like the ink and card stock :) I did add a little piece of Lucky Limeade Baker's Twine in the centre of it ~ so I guess I cheated, lol!
*How much do you love the Holiday Frame Embossing Folder? I love it even more because it's not just for the holidays! I love how it looks with any larger image.

I really hope the new homeowners love their card. And thanks again for hanging in there with me while I blog a bit less. Soon I'll be all set up and ready to stamp up a storm! 'Til next time, keep letting stamps bring out your creativity!
