Love Blooms



Back in April Selma showed a card she had made and how she made the flowers. It was breath taking. Well you know me, if Selma does it I gotta at least try it. So I ordered the colored vellum and punches from Joan's Garden. That woman is great!!! She has even emailed me my invoice to avoid going up an oz. to save me money on shipping. Now how many business does that!!? Plus she has wonderful stuff. She is also going to be starting a challenge every Thursday so be sure and go check her out! I have been very pleased with every thing I have ever ordered from her and it's a lot. Anyway, I did make some changes form Selma's card, I used red instead of pink, I put a sentiment where she had more flowers, and I added butterflies and some extra leaves. I dry embossed the green back ground with the textile folder and cut the ovals out with the oval nesties. The butterflies are embossed and cut out with the die from Stampin Up. I'm pleased at how it turned out. Hate giving it away but hey, that's why we make cards right.I am entering this in the challenge to emboss at Caarvarks. Check em out. Thanks for taking time to drop in and look. Let me know if you like it or not cause I just love reading your wonderful comments!!!

Oh my gosh Olga, this is absolutely GORGEOUS. Your flowers are PERFECT! How exciting to see a card someone made with the vellum flowers. I am so happy you had fun making it. I agree, isn't Joan the greatest. I love ordering my things from her. I'll be looking for your card in Joan's challenge!

This is beautiful Olga! Love the border punch and such a beautiful sentiment. Sorry I have been MIA of late...been cleaning, reorganizing and keeping up with the kids so stamping time/blogging is hard to come by.
