I have a quick post for you tonight featuring a new set I got from Stampin' Up! called Irresistible Blooms. I wasn't quite sure how I was going to use it, so went looking for some inspiration and came across this sketch at Sketch Saturday that I thought was absolutely perfect for showcasing this set.
Here's a sneak peek - and yes, there is PINK in my card - AGAIN! Mind you, at least this is more peachy-pink :-)
And here's the sketch from Sketch Saturday.
I used three different shades of peachy-pink for the three blooms and two different shades of a lagoon for the leaves. I also used one of the stamps from the set to create the dots in the background at the top and bottom of my arrangement. I thought they helped to echo the movement from the sketch. I needed a vertical element down the right hand side and realized that the "dot-dash" die in the matching die set would be perfect. I die-cut that from white card stock and adhered it to the base.
I adhered and popped some of the flowers and added the sentiment and some jewels as a finishing touch. I decided to add the main panel onto a lagoon base. Here's my card:
I confess to being a little obsessed with that "dot-dash" die cut and am wondering how else I can use it!
I'll be back tomorrow with another card. In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.
