CCC #005: August Cool Cards - In the Garden

Hey Stampers,

Good day to you !! I am so excited to share today's card with you - it is another Card Challenge over at Catherine and Cathy Create !! The theme for August is "In The Garden" ! So break out those flowers, butterflies and birds and come and play along !! The card I made uses the Stippled Blossoms stamp set, and I made it into a birthday card ! I gave it to my Grandmother for her birthday yesterday and she loved it !! I love it too - take a look and tell me what you think !!

Isn't that lovely !?! I just adore the images from this set - I have no idea why I don't use it more often !! The colors I used for the flowers are Blushing Bride and Primrose Petals, and the leaves are Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive. Love the two step stamping - such a professional look !! It may be a bit difficult to see in the picture, but my Whisper White layer was stamped very lightly with the En Francais background stamp with Crumb Cake ink. A nice subtle background ! It also looks like I can't stop using the great sentiments from the Simply Sketched hostess set either. LOL And isn't that texture just AWESOME !?! My card base was embossed with the awesome Beautifully Baroque embossing folder - love that one ! 

Well thats it for me today !! And remember, we would just LOVE it if you would drop over to Catherine and Cathy Create and play along with our fun August Card Challenge !! Our Design Team have some GORGEOUS ideas for you there too, so head on over !! Thanks so much for coming by today and Happy Stamping !!
