Define Your Life



OK here is the second card I made using the same layout as the last card. For this one I give credit to Marelle for the great idea of using the five petal punch on the flowers from the SU Eastern Blooms set. I would never have thought of doing that and I think they look great! So thank you Marelle for that tip. The flowers have clear chunky glitter in their centres. It was fun making up this card and doing all the little finishing things like the paper piercing and the knotted ribbon.

Stamps: SU Eastern Blooms, Sanded Background, Define Your Life
Ink: Old Olive, Taken with Teal, So Saffron and Rose Red
Card: Old Olive, So Saffron, Rose Red and Whisper White
Petals and Paisley DSP, Chunky Glitter, Dimensionals, Taken with Teal ribbon
