…the fairest blossom which springs from the soul

Sharing a card I made with my new Climbing Roses stamp from Stampin’ Up!.

I needed to make some thank you cards and this new stamp set arrived just in time especially when it was the perfect one for the current challenge at AAA Cards.  I’ve got the one corner and the optional twist of flowers covered off with this pretty little cluster of roses.  I decided to use embossing powder for the stamp outline to add a little sparkle to the card, given it was going to be mostly white space and to match in with the embossed sentiment.

For my colours I’ve gone with pretty and bright summery ones playing along at As You Like It.  When it comes to floral images, I prefer summer over winter colours, I just think they are so much happier, just like flowers make me feel.  So I picked a really bright pink and green from my Distress Inks and also added a nice bright purple mat under the watercolour paper.

They’ve got an easy anything goes challenge running at Aud Sentiments, I’ve got the always required sentiment covered too, so am linking up there.
