First, I'd like to wish everyone a Blessed Palm Sunday.
Today, I'm participating in the March Papertrey Ink Blog hop
where we were given this lovely photo to be inspired by.
And here is my card.
I didn't have a nest to use so decided to die cut two vases from the new Vogue Vase Dies. I stamped them with the Background Basics Birch stamp in Cocoa Bean Ink on white card stock and then sponged the edges with Classic Kraft Ink.
I also used the new Simple Stems - both stamps and dies. Inking them in colors similar to the beautiful bouquet in the photo. I adhered a strip of Text Style Bitty Box Basics (retired but I still have some!) to the bottom of my white card base, stamped the sentiment from Simple Stems and then embossed the card front with a Chevron embossing folder. Then I adhered the larger vase over the panel and adhered the smaller vase with foam dots over it. The flower heads are all on foam dots as well so there's lots of dimension on my card.
I'm at church when the blog hop goes live - so I won't be linking it until after noon time when I get back to my computer!
I'll be sending this card to my friend's sister who is having 6 weeks of radiation treatment and could use some sunshine and flowers in her day!
You have all day today to link up your inspired card over at the Papertrey Ink Blog.
