Bloom

Hi and welcome to day 4 of MFT Teaser Time.  Today, I have a card using the soon-to-be-released Inspired by Flowers, set 1.  This will be a year long series, with one releasing each quarter.  While this image is more on the elegant side, I decided to incorporate some bright, fun papers and bright, cheery embellishments.


I stamped the flower in Versamark and embossed in white on some patterned white vellum.  I matted it on some pink, polka-dot paper.  It looks neat peeking through the vellum.  I stitched the panels together.  I added the Bloom sentiment to a sentiment flag and laid it across the flower panel.


I wanted to keep the color scheme light and bright so I opted for a white scalloped border using Simply Scallops.  It looked a little plain to me so I decided to add a couple stitched lines down the side.  The round panel was also stitched.  I stitched that one, one stitch at a time so I would be sure to get it *just* right.  I also added some crystal flourishes.  I'm sure you're not surprised given my recent flourish addiction.


I used my Bow Easy to make a pink bow with grosgrain ribbon.
