This is a card from my recent class. I always have the instructions on the table for the ladies when they come in. When the ladies actually saw this card in the ‘flesh’ they remarked that the photo didn’t do the card justice. I love the detail in the flowers in this sets and of course the chance to get the Stampin’ Blends out

Next week, I’m going to try something a little different. I am going to attempt to post a different card each day using the same stamp set. I am going to start with my favourite suite in the new catalogue, the Birthday Bonanza Suite.
Until next time, happy crafting
